not作为一个我们最早认识的否定词

我们是再熟悉不过了

今天就要带大家认识几个

带着not但是却还可以表达肯定含义的固定用法!

as likely as not

as likely as not看似有否定,但其实这个短语是肯定意义的,表示“多半”、“说不定”。

他很可能会赶上他们。

He will succeed as likely as not.

他多半会成功。

more often than not

more often than not相当于very often,意思是“经常”、“常常”。

汤姆经常迟到。

not to say

not to say这个短语很容易迷惑人,其真正含义是“甚至”、“简直”、“几乎”,并不是“虽不能说”、“虽说不上”。

例:

He is unkind, not to say cruel.

他不和善,甚至有点残酷。

He sounded impolite, not to say rude.

他那样说话是无礼貌的,甚至可以说有点粗鲁。

 你要是卖掉汽车真够愚蠢的,甚至可以说是发疯。
