  1. 請問一下:

    若將A句 It seems that John fell in love with Mary.
    改寫成: John seems to have fallen in love with Mary.

    將B句 It seems that John has fallen in love with Mary.
    改寫成: John seems to have fallen in love with Mary.

    則這A、B兩句的改寫結果,竟然都是一樣? 請問這樣的改寫是否正確合理呢?

    • 改寫結果雖然相同,但我們無法從 John seems to have fallen in love with Mary. 這句去瞭解 John 和 Mary 現在是否還戀愛 ing。但 It seems that John fell in love with Mary. 這句卻可告訴我們現在兩人並非戀人或 John 現在已不愛 Mary 了 (曾經愛過),而 It seems that John has fallen in love with Mary. 這句則告訴我們 John 從過去到現在一直愛著 Mary 或現在兩人還相愛。

  2. 好的, 感謝您的解說。
