英语语法中名词像形容词一样时举例!

The English language has an interesting way of classifying words. We organize words by their function or purpose. These functions are parts of speech. You might find that a noun acts like a verb, as with the word impact. Once you would talk about something having an impact. This is the noun form of impact. Now you can say you want to impact a decision process. That is the verb form of impact.

You know that an adjective modifies, describing a quality of a noun. For example, you drink a cup of hot tea. The adjective is hot and the noun is tea. What about lemon tea? Lemon is a noun, isn’t it? Why is it modifying tea?

English often uses nouns as adjectives – to modify other nouns. For example, a car that people drive in races is a race car. A car with extra power or speed is a sports car. Nouns that modify other nouns are called adjectival nouns or noun modifiers. For our purposes, they are called attributive nouns. So we will use that term.

EG: Main – When Nouns Act Like Adjectives
EG: Main – When Nouns Act Like Adjectives
Did you notice something unusual about the expressions with the noun car? A car used to race other cars is a race car. Both nouns are singular. A car that has power and speed is a sports car. Why is the first noun, sports, plural? A search of the Internet shows us that people started using this phrase back in 1914. Cars were a new thing then.

There is no rule about whether the attributive noun is singular or plural. Most of the time it is singular. But if the combination of nouns includes a plural noun, it usually stays that way. The result is phrases like ladies room – not lady room, for a room meant for women and girls, and bean soup but not beans soup for a soup made of beans.

Some grammar experts think that English speakers are using more plural nouns in this way. We have arms race, benefits office, and women leaders. At times, a singular noun changes the meaning. An arts degree recognizes completion of a study program at a college or university in the humanities (or liberal arts). But an art degree is a degree in the fine arts.

When writing these attributive nouns in English, learners sometimes wonder about whether to use an apostrophe to show possession. Is it a ladies’ room? No, it is a ladies room. Attributive nouns do not need the apostrophe. So we write Veterans Day in American English and not Veteran’s Day or Veterans’ Day. That means the day is in honor of military veterans, not owned by veterans.

Try to identify the attributive nouns George Harrison uses in The Beatles’ song Piggies.

Everywhere there’s lots of piggies
Living piggy lives
You can see them out for dinner
With their piggy wives
Clutching forks and knives
To eat their bacon

英语对单词有一种有趣的分类方法。我们按其功能或目的组织单词。这些函数是语音的一部分。你可能会发现名词就像动词一样,就像”影响”这个词一样。一旦你谈论的东西有影响。这是影响名词的形式。现在,您可以说要影响决策过程。这就是冲击的动词形式。

你知道形容词会修改,描述一个名词的质量。例如,你喝杯热茶。形容词是热的,名词是茶。柠檬茶怎么样?柠檬是一个名词,不是吗?为什么要修改茶?

英语通常用名词作为形容词——来修改其他名词。例如,人们在赛跑中驾驶的汽车是赛车。具有额外动力或速度的汽车是跑车。修改其他名词的名词称为邻名词或名词修饰符。就我们的目的而言,它们被称为归因名词。因此,我们将使用这个词。

EG: Main – When Nouns Act Like Adjectives
EG: 主 – 当名词像形容词一样时
你注意到名词车的表达方式有些不寻常吗?用来与其他汽车赛跑的汽车是赛车。两个名词都是单数。有动力和速度的汽车是跑车。为什么第一个名词,体育,复数?对互联网的搜索告诉我们,人们早在1914年就开始使用这个短语。那时汽车是一件新鲜事。

关于归因名词是单数还是复数,没有规则。大多数时候它是奇异的。但是,如果名词的组合包括复数名词,它通常保持这种方式。结果是像女士房这样的短语——不是女士房,是适合妇女和女童的房间,豆汤是豆汤,而不是豆汤。用豆汤做汤。

一些语法专家认为,说英语的人使用这种形式更多的复数名词。我们有军备竞赛、福利办公室和妇女领导人。有时,单数名词会改变含义。艺术学位承认在人文学科(或文科)的学院或大学完成学习课程。但艺术学位是美术学位。

在用英语写这些归因名词时,学习者有时会怀疑是否使用撇号来表示占有。是女厕所吗?不,这是一间女士房。属性名词不需要撇号。因此,我们用美国英语写退伍军人节,而不是退伍军人节或退伍军人节。这意味着这一天是为了纪念退伍军人, 而不是退伍军人拥有。

试着找出乔治·哈里森在披头士乐队的歌曲《小猪》中使用的归因名词。

到处都
有很多小猪生活小猪生活
你可以看到他们出去吃饭与
他们的小猪妻子
抓着叉子和刀子
吃他们的熏肉
