词语用法

adv.(副词)
  1. meanwhile的基本意思是“其间,与此同时”,指在一件事情发生的过程中或者一段时间内另一件事也在发生。
  2. meanwhile用作副词时,也可拼作meantime,为非正式英语。
  3. meanwhile有时也可用作名词,多用在in the meanwhile短语中,意思与meanwhile相同,但不如meanwhile用得普遍。例如:The next programme starts in five minutes; in the meanwhile, here's some music.下一个节目5分钟后开始,现在先播放些音乐。The new secretary won't come until next week; in the meanwhile we've arranged for a temporary one.新秘书在下周前还不会来,在此期间,我们已经安排了一位临时秘书。In the meanwhile I'll wash the dishes.与此同时,我要洗洗盘子。
