possible的詳細講解:

詞語用法

adj. (形容詞)
  1. possible的基本意思是“可能的”“潛在的”,指某事可能做、可能存在或可能發生,也可指某事可能是真實的、正確的,引申可表示“可接受的”“合適的”。
  2. possible還可作“也許的”解,指某事物或大或小、或有或無的、或發生或未發生的可能性,作此解時,只用作表語。
  3. possible在句中用作定語時,可前置,也可后置。修飾anything, something, everything, all, every, the only或最高級形容詞時常后置。
  4. possible可用作先行主語it的表語,后面跟動詞不定式或that從句作真實主語。
  5. possible是絕對形容詞,沒有比較級和最高級,也不受very修飾。

詞義辨析

adj. (形容詞)
as ... as possible, as ... as sb can
  • 這兩個短語的意思都是“盡可能地”“盡力地”。前者的語氣比后者更有禮貌。例如:
  • He sat as far away from the others as possible./He sat as far away from the others as he could.他盡可能地和其他人坐得遠一些。
  • possible, likely, probable
  • 這三個詞均表示“可能”。
  • 1.probable常指有較大的可能性,表示客觀上潛在的可能性,較有根據和充分理由而值得相信的事,意味著經過權衡正反兩方面的理由后而相信的事大概會發生的,常譯作“很可能”。
  • 2.possible指有可能小,但強調客觀上有可能性,且常有可能性較小的暗示。
  • 3.likely作形容詞時意為“很可能,大概,也許”,側重表示從表面跡象看來某人有可能做某事或某事有可能發生。
  • 下面兩句意思相同:
  • Is it possible to rain today?
  • Is it possible that it will rain today?
  • 今天可能下雨嗎?
  • 常見錯誤

    adj. (形容詞)
      可能發生…

      It's possible to happen ...

      It's possible to be done ...

      It's possible ...

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

      他認為她那天有可能回來。

      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.

      她可能會把我忘了嗎?

      Is it possible that she may have forgotten me?

      Is it possible that she can have forgotten me?

      你不可能需要經濟上的援助。

      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〕,因為所表示的或者就是事實或者可能性較大。當用于否定句或疑問句時,后面則接should或can/could,對事實或可能性提出質疑或根本不相信。

      我會盡快來。

      I'll come as soon as possibly.

      I'll come as soon as possible.

      as...as possible是as...as it is possible縮略形式,只能用形容詞possible,不可用副詞possibly。

      你今晚能來吃飯嗎?

      Are you possible to come to dinner this evening?

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

      當表示“某人有可能做某事”時,須用It is/was possible for sb to- v 結構,不能用sb is/was possible to- v 結構,即possible不能以人作主語。
