- very用于否定结构时,含有“恰如其分”的意味,即相当于rather或fairly。not very(不很,不大)用起来比较委婉,美国人常用not so。very good或very well意为“好,可以,没问题”,常用来客气地表示同意或允诺,通常用在争论、劝说或被迫之后表示同意或答应。另外,very well有时也作反语用,表示说话人自己并不怎么愿意。very much放在宾语之后或置于实义动词之前,一般不可放在句子开头。
误 He was very in love with that girl.
正 He was deeply in love with that girl.
- ☆ 13世纪晚期进入英语，直接源自古法语的verai，意为真的；最初源自拉丁语的verax，意为真实的。
