as long as 用法與中文意思

 as long as 中文意思多到讓你記不住嗎?英文之所以複雜,就是因為同一個詞組,可能有好幾種不一樣的用法,而這些用法的意思還不一樣,而「as long as」就是其中一個。

英文老師 Alex 在 Engvid 上介紹了三種 as long as 的其他用法,別再以為 as long as 只有「與…一樣長」的意思囉!

as long as 用法、as long as 中文意思

下面教學 as long as 所有用法以及它的中文意思,趕快來看例句搞懂吧。

1. as long as 只要(在一段時間內)…就會…

as long as 最常見的中文意思是「只要….」,這是無論在電影裡面,還是一班英文會話,最常看到的用法。

例: I’ll remember you as long as I live.
只要我還活著,我就會一直記著你。

例: As long as I’m here, I’ll help.
只要我還在這,我就會幫忙。

特別注意這邊 as long as 後面接上的是「現在簡單式」,而非未來式。

2. as long as 只要(做到某件事)…就可以…

例: You can come as long as you are quiet.
只要你保持安靜,你就可以來。

例: I’ll help as long as you buy pizza.
只要你買披薩,我就會幫你忙。

這個用法帶有假設的語意在內,與英文文法中的「假設語氣」很像,都是在假設如果A事情發生,B事情就可以成行。

3. as long as 根本就會長達…

例: The meeting could be as long as three hours.
這個會議根本就會長達三小時。

例: He can talk for as long as one hour!
他超愛講話,根本可以連講一小時不口渴。

這裡的「長達(時間)」不只是單純地在敘述某件事發生的時間長短,更是要誇飾或強調時間的「長度」。

另外,跟as long as 另外兩個比較相關的則是as well as 跟as far as ,可以參考下面文章。

無論是as long as / as well as,還是as far as ,都很常用,一定要知道用法喔。
