- so long在非正式用语中可作“再见”解。
- for long的意思是“长久”,常用于否定句或疑问句中。
- long有时还可用作可数名词,意思是“长音节”。例如:The poem has four longs and six shorts.这首诗有四个长音节和六个短音节。
- long有时也可用作及物动词,接表示希望或愿望的that从句,谓语多由will或may构成。例如:We longed that we could see our own country.我们迫切希望看到自己的国家。I long that she may come this afternoon.我盼她今天下午能来。
- long, a long time
1.这两者都用作表示时间的状语,用于疑问句中可互换。例如:Have you been here long〔a long〕 time?你在这里呆了很久了吗?2.a long time可用于肯定句中;而long只在受另一副词如too, enough, ago修饰时才用于肯定句。例如:She waited there for a long time.她在那里等了很长时间。You've been sleeping too long〔long enough 〕.你睡得太久了。3.在否定结构中,两者所表达的意思有别。试比较：
- Tom didn't work for long.
- Tom didn't work for a long time.
- how long, how soon
这两个短语的区别是:how soon的意思是“多久”,当我们就陈述句中的“过多少时间(就能…)”这一部分提问时,只能用how soon不能用how long; how long的意思是“多长”,当我们就陈述的“一段时间的长短”提问时,要用how long,不能用how soon。试比较:
- “How soon will he be here?”“In two hours.” “再过多久他就在这里了?”“两个小时。” “How long will he be here?”“For two hours.” “他要在这里呆多长时间?”“两个小时。”

- It happened before long.
- It happened long before.
- long for, ache for, die for, hunger for, sigh for, starve for, thirst for
这组短语间的区别是:1.这组短语都可以表示“渴望得到某物”或“渴望做某事”; ache for和sigh for还可表示“想念某人”; hunger for还可表示“渴望知道某情况”。2.这组短语都可以人作主语; ache for和thirst for还可用表示身体某部位的名词作主语。3.这组短语都可以物作宾语; ache for, long for和sigh for还可以人作宾语。4.ache for和die for多用于进行时态; hunger for和thirst for多用于一般时态; 而long for则可用于各种时态。5.除starve for可用于被动语态作“缺乏”解外,其他6个短语极少用于被动语态。6.die for表示的是极端渴望; ache for和long for表示的是强烈的渴望; 其他4个短语所表示的语气则相对较轻。7.ache for和long for是口语用法; sigh for是文学用语; 其他4个短语则属于比喻用法。
- long, pine, yearn
这组词的共同意思是“渴望”。其区别在于:1.pine暗示苦苦思念不可能得到的事物; long暗示有强烈的愿望并付诸努力; yearn则暗示不安地或痛苦地渴望做到某事或得到某物。2.long和yearn后均可跟for短语或不定式,但long是一般用语,用于褒义或贬义均可;而yearn则通常用于高尚的感情或用于诗歌中。例如:My brother yearned to return to his native land.我哥哥渴望回故乡。
