seldom的详细讲解:

词语用法

adv. (副词)
  1. seldom是频度副词,意思是“很少,罕见,难得”。
  2. seldom具有否定意味,在句中一般位于系动词、情态动词、助动词之后、实义动词之前,用于句首表示强调时,要主谓部分倒装。
  3. seldom用于反意疑问句时,附加问句中不用否定词not。
  4. seldom在下列情况下也可用作表语:第一,用于以it作形式主语而以that从句作真实主语的结构中; 第二,用于修饰时间状语从句的定语从句中; 第三,用于修饰时间状语从句的插入语中。

词义辨析

adv. (副词)
seldom if ever, seldom or never
  • 这两个短语意思相近,其区别只在于seldom or never语气更强烈。
  • 常见错误

    adv. (副词)
      他很少在午夜前睡觉。

      Seldom he goes to bed before midnight.

      Seldom does he go to bed before midnight.

      当seldom放在句首时,句子的主谓必须部分倒装。类似的词还有never, hardly, scarcely等等。

      她很少午夜之前回家,是吗?

      She seldom arrives home before midnight, doesn't she?

      She seldom arrives home before midnight, does she?

      seldom本身带有否定意义,构成附加疑问句时不用否定词not。

      他讲课很少按时到。

      He is seldom ever on time for his lectures.

      He is seldom if ever on time for his lectures.

      表示“很少”“难得”解时, seldom不与ever连用,应用seldom(,)if ever。
