Dear Mr Yang,

Should I use "more" before "worse"? Would you please show me some examples?

Thank you

Kat

 

No . eg -
1. The ecomony is getting worse.
2. The patient is worse than yesterday.
3. John's schoolwork is getting worse by the week.
4. John's school is worse than Peter's.
5. The political situation is getting worse and worse.

Dear Mr Yeung,

I have some questions concerning English, and I hope that you can kindly answer them.

1.Which of the following sentences is correct?

a) The last date will be 29th June.
b) The last date will be on 29th June.

2. It seems that "pressure" and "stress" can be both referred to 壓力, but I think pressure is external, that is, when there is a lot of work or unexpected changes, the pressure is great. Stress is our internal feeling in reaction to pressure. Am I right? Or they are just the same?

3. In some legal documents, I often come across terms like "herein" and "hereby". What is the difference between there two words? It seems that they can be used interchangeably.

Thank you very much for your attention.

Simon

 

1. a) is correct.

2. Herein = in here, 在此處,在於此文件(或聲明,事實)中。Hereby = 特此,以此。e.g.: "I hereby order you to do..."; "It is hereby declared that the 12th of November shall be a public holiday."

3. Here "pressure" means 心理壓力,緊張,在很大程度上可以與 "stress" 通用。

Dear Mr Yang,

I am a HK F.7 student. I had a question about the difference between "since" and "after".

Q: She's changed a lot ... she left school.
Choice A: since; ChoiceB: after.

The correct answer is "A: since", but "B: after" seems right too.

如用中文來解釋,好像兩者也解得通。(自從她離開學校後,她改變了很多。)

題目中除了present prefect tense "has changed" 顯示了應該用 "since" 外, 還有甚麼提示表示要用 "since" 呢?又,為何不可以用 "after" 呢?

Thank You for answering my question.

Yours faithfully,
Monica Lau

 

The meaning of "since" and "after" is different.

a) Since -自...以後,從...以後,自...那時...以來。
要與 present perfect 或 past perfect 連用。

b) After - 指時問 , 在...之後。

e.g. for (a) : She's been unemployed since May; We have lived here since 1985; I have not eaten since breakfast; He has been staying at home since his graduation; Since the party I have only seen John once; I have changed jobs many times since last year .

e.g. for (b) : We'll leave after lunch; After winning the race , she became famous; After an hour, I went home; Not long after that he resigned.
