听歌学口语

1. I just wish you were a better man我希望你会是个更好的男人

“wish”后面加的表示虚拟语气的从句,所以Be动词用的是“are”的过去式“were”。

虚拟语气就是指跟现实不一样的,这句歌词说“我只是希望你成为更好的男人”,说明现实是“你还不是更好的男人。”

e.g. I wish I were a superman. 我希望我是超人。

 

2. I know the bravest thing I ever did was run我知道我做过最勇敢的事就是抽身逃离

“the bravest thing I ever did was run.”“I ever did” 是来修饰“the bravest thing”的从句,定语从句。

e.g. The best man I ever saw is you.你是我见过的最好的人.
