“miss”作动词使用时,有几种不同的含义。

在第一组例句中,“miss”是想念的意思,指因为某物或某人不在了,或者在离你很远的地方,因而想念。在这种情况下,不要使用进行时ing形式。

 

· Ankita misses her boyfriend who moved to Europe.

· Edgar misses his parents now that he’s living in the United States.

· Yolanda and Juan missed seeing each other when they were apart, but now they’re back together again.

· Now that you’re married, what do you miss most about being single?

· I miss the carefree days of my youth.

“miss”的另一种意思稍有不同,指你找不到某样东西了。在这种情况下,使用ing形式就很常见了。

· This puzzle is missing a few pieces.

· The store is missing a few thousand dollars.

· She’s missing a front tooth.

· You’re missing an assignment. Where is it?

· The police are looking for a missing child.(在这个句子中,“missing”是形容词。)

“miss”的第三种意思是说,你试图击打或者投掷某物但没有命中,也就是“未击中/未投中”的意思。

· Bobby swung at the ball and missed.

· Sheila tried to throw the cabbage into the garbage, but her aim was bad and she missed. The cabbage fell to the floor.

“miss”的第四种意思是说,约定好了一次见面、一场会议或者某种服务,但你没能赶上或者你没去。

· You missed your appointment. You’ll have to reschedule.

· Try not to miss any more classes.

· I’m sorry I missed the party. Was it fun?

“miss”还有一种用法很重要,和动词用法完全不同,用作未婚女性的称谓。

未婚:Miss

已婚:Mrs.

不确定:Ms.

· Our teacher is Miss Rickenbacker.(她没结婚,还是单身。)

· The principal’s name is Mrs. Fender.(她已婚。)

· Ms. Gibson is a lawyer.(我们不清楚她是否已婚。职业女性通常使用“Ms.”。)
