第六冊 6單元 連接詞 no matter what/who/... 的用法

 

標題句:No matter what you do, you'll succeed if you don't give up.

結 構:連接詞 no matter what/who/when/which/where/how 的用法

 

no matter 的對應中文是「無論 ...」,它和其他疑問詞連用,就產生了底下的意思:

no matter what...:無論什麼 ...
no matter who...:無論誰 ...
no matter when...:無論何時 ...
no matter which...:無論哪一個 ...
no matter where...:無論哪裡 ...
no matter how...:無論如何 ...

這種 no matter what/who/when/which/where/how... 是屬於「連接詞」,可放句首,也可放句尾。

例:

1. No matter what he says, don't believe him.(不管他說什麼,不要相信他。)
= Don't believe him
no matter what he says.

 

2. No matter when you arrive here, just call me.(不管你什麼時候到這裡,打電話給我就對了。)
= Just call me
no matter when you arrive here.

 

間接問句一樣,which how 之後,也可以視需要,加上其他字詞:

例:

3. No matter how fast you drive, it'll take you at least 2 hours from here to there.

(無論你開得多快,從這裡到那裡,至少得開二個鐘頭。)

4. No matter which book she took, she should ask her boss.
(無論她拿的是哪一本書,她應該要問她的老闆一下。)

 

no matter what/who/when/which/where/how... 連接詞和 if(假如)/when...的時候)一樣,其後所接的時間是「未來」時,「須用現在單純式代替未來式」。

例:
5. No matter where he
goes, we will follow him.

(無論他到哪裡,我們都會跟隨著他。)

 

6. Mr. White will buy that beautiful house no matter how much it is.

(無論那棟漂亮房子有多貴,White 先生都會買下來。)

 

基本上,因和中文的用法很像,所以這個用法不太會造成學習上的困難,你只要注意上述的注意事項即可。
