often的详细讲解:

词语用法

adv.(副词)
  1. often的基本意思是“常常,经常”,主要修饰动词,也可修饰其他副词或形容词,指某件事情在不同场合下屡次发生,具体的时间意味不强。有时often还表示“在许多场合下”。可用于一般时态,也可用于完成体。
  2. often一般位于实义动词之前,而位于to be、情态动词或(第一个)助动词之后。有时为了加强语气, often也可以放在系动词之前,此时作谓语的系动词要重读。
  3. often有时也可放在句末。如果句子相当短,可将often放在句末,为了加强语气或对比,有时可以移至句首,这时常常引起主谓倒装(非正式语体中也可不倒装)。
  4. 用于疑问句或否定句中, often可以用作表语。
  5. often在用于询问“隔多长时间一次”或“多少次”时,常用于how often短语。
  6. as often as not和more often than not同义,都作“往往,多半,再三,不时”解,且都是肯定的意思。例如:The motoring accidents happen in this section more often than not/as often as not.车祸不时在这一地段发生。

词义辨析

adv.(副词)
often, always, sometimes, usually
这四个词意思相近。其区别是:
1.表示的频率不同。例如:
He comes to school on Monday,Tuesday,Wednesday,Thursday,Friday,Saturday and even on Sunday.我们可说:He always goes to school.always表示的频率是100%。
He comes to school on Monday,Tuesday,Wednesday,Thursday and Friday.我们可说:He usually goes to school.usually表示的频率是90%。
He comes to school on Monday,Tuesday,Wednesday and Thursday.我们可说:He often goes to school.often表示的频率是60%。
He comes to school on Monday and Thursday.我们可以说He sometimes goes to school.sometimes表示的频率是20%。
2.always的反义词是never; often的反义词是seldom; usually的反义词是occasionally, sometimes的反义词是always。
often, frequently
这两个词都可表示“经常”。其区别是:
often是常用词,强调的是经常性,具体时间意味不强; frequently比较正式,强调在某一具体时间内某事一次接一次地发生。试比较:
  • He comes here very often.
  • 他经常来这儿。
  • He comes here very frequently.
  • 他来这儿很频繁。
always often usually frequently repeatedly regularly
这些副词均表示频度。
  • always:always总是,永远。语气最强,指在一切时候,没有例外。
  • often:often经常,语气弱于always,侧重动作发生的次数具有经常性,具体时间意味不强。
  • usually:usually通常,通例地,指习惯性动作,频度仅次于always,较often大,偶尔有间隔。
  • frequently:frequently时常,经常,与often同义,可通用,但较正式,强调次数频繁。
  • repeatedly:repeatedly屡次,强调次数多,但反复的频率不一定均匀。
  • regularly:regularly用于修饰经常而有规律性的动作。

常见错误

adv.(副词)
  1. 昨天上英语课时,我常常犯拼写错误。

    I often made spelling mistakes in English class yesterday.

    I made spelling mistakes in English class several times yesterday.

    often通常不与其他表示时间的词(如yesterday)出现在同一句子中,因为often表示“不同场合下常常…”,而不表示“同一场合下常常…”。

  2. 他经常因公出差到国外去。

    He travels often abroad for business.

    He often travels abroad for business.

    often一般放在行为动词之前,系动词、助动词或情态动词之后,但在强调系动词、助动词或情态动词时例外。

  3. 你多久给你的父母写信?

    How long do you write to your parents?

    How often do you write to your parents?

    how long指“行为持续的时间”,而how often则表示“多久发生一次”,即某种行为发生的频率。
