possible的详细讲解:

词语用法

adj.(形容词)
  1. possible的基本意思是“可能的”“潜在的”,指某事可能做、可能存在或可能发生,也可指某事可能是真实的、正确的,引申可表示“可接受的”“合适的”。
  2. possible还可作“也许的”解,指某事物或大或小、或有或无的、或发生或未发生的可能性,作此解时,只用作表语。
  3. possible在句中用作定语时,可前置,也可后置。修饰anything, something, everything, all, every, the only或最高级形容词时常后置。
  4. possible可用作先行主语it的表语,后面跟动词不定式或that从句作真实主语。
  5. possible是绝对形容词,没有比较级和最高级,也不受very修饰。
  6. 因为事情要么可能,要么不可能,所以有人反对用even less possible这类的表达方式。在使用中应避免这种用法。

词义辨析

adj.(形容词)
as ... as possible, as ... as sb can
这两个短语的意思都是“尽可能地”“尽力地”。前者的语气比后者更有礼貌。例如:
He sat as far away from the others as possible./He sat as far away from the others as he could.他尽可能地和其他人坐得远一些。
possible, likely, probable
这三个词均表示“可能”。
1.probable常指有较大的可能性,表示客观上潜在的可能性,较有根据和充分理由而值得相信的事,意味着经过权衡正反两方面的理由后而相信的事大概会发生的,常译作“很可能”。
2.possible指有可能小,但强调客观上有可能性,且常有可能性较小的暗示。
3.likely作形容词时意为“很可能,大概,也许”,侧重表示从表面迹象看来某人有可能做某事或某事有可能发生。
下面两句意思相同:
  • Is it possible to rain today?
  • Is it possible that it will rain today?
  • 今天可能下雨吗?

常见错误

adj.(形容词)
  1. 可能发生…

    It's possible to happen ...

    It's possible to be done ...

    It's possible ...

    possible本身就意味着that may happen或that can be done,故不能说It's possible to happen...或It's possible to be done...。

  2. 他认为她那天有可能回来。

    He thought it was possible that she should come back that day.

    He thought it was possible that she would〔might〕 come back that day.

  3. 她可能会把我忘了吗?

    Is it possible that she may have forgotten me?

    Is it possible that she can have forgotten me?

  4. 你不可能需要经济上的援助。

    It is impossible that you shall need any financial support.

    It is impossible that you should need any financial support.

    it is possible that后面通常接will〔shall〕, may, would或might,很少接should或could〔can〕,因为所表示的或者就是事实或者可能性较大。当用于否定句或疑问句时,后面则接should或can/could,对事实或可能性提出质疑或根本不相信。

  5. 我会尽快来。

    I'll come as soon as possibly.

    I'll come as soon as possible.

    as...as possible是as...as it is possible缩略形式,只能用形容词possible,不可用副词possibly。

  6. 你今晚能来吃饭吗?

    Are you possible to come to dinner this evening?

    Is it possible for you to come to dinner this evening?

    当表示“某人有可能做某事”时,须用It is/was possible for sb to- v 结构,不能用sb is/was possible to- v 结构,即possible不能以人作主语。

词源解说

  • ☆ 1300年左右进入英语,直接源自拉丁语的possbiilis,意为可以完成的;最初源自该语的posse,意为可以,能够。
