妙语佳句,活学活用


1. What is it?

相当于What's wrong? 这句话的意思是“本,你怎么了?/你没事吧?”父亲觉得本的表情、举止有些怪异。实际上是问“你没有不舒服,没有生病吧?”与第一句 What's the matter?(为什么还不下来/为什么还呆在屋里?)有些区别。在上下文都很清楚的情况下,it is... 表示原因:“是因为……”。例如:
--Why didn't you buy the shirt? It is cheap and fine.
--Well, it is not the price. It is just the style. I don't like the style.
--你为什么不买那件衬衣?物美价廉呀。
--倒不是因为价钱。是因为款式。我不喜欢那种款式。

2. to come all the way from...

专门从……赶来(远道而来)。例如:She came all the way from Shanghai to attend his birthday party. 她大老远从上海赶来参加他的生日聚会。
