Few 和 a few 有分別嗎?


"Few" 和 "a few" 的意思不盡相同。

"Few" 的意思是:很少,幾乎沒有 (hardly any) 

"A few" 的意思是:一些,幾個 (some) 

留意下面句子意思上的區別: 

As he has few friends, he is always bored.
=他幾乎沒有朋友,所以常常覺得很悶。  

He has a few friends, but he's still bored most of the time.
=他有一些朋友,但大部分時候還是覺得悶。 

She has made few friends since she lived abroad.
=自出國生活以來,她幾乎沒有交朋友。 

She has made a few friends since she lived abroad.
=自出國生活以來,她交了一些朋友。 

I have few relatives in Hong Kong.
=在香港,我幾乎沒有親戚。  

I have a few relatives in Hong Kong.
=在香港,我有幾個親戚。
