Ask a Teacher: Foods We Count...or Don't

名师答疑:食品究竟是可数照样弗成数

You probably know a lot of food words, such as bread, apple and rice. But knowing which foods are countable and which are not can be tricky.

或许你知道很多关于食品的单词,如面包、苹果和大年夜米。但哪一种食品可数,哪一种食品弗成数令人认为复杂难解。

In today's Ask a Teacher, Abdo from Sudan writes:

明天的名师问答节目中,来自苏丹的阿布都写到:

How do I know which foods can be plural? For example, if I want two of some food, can I say, "I would like two beefs" or "I would like two breads"?

我若何才能知道哪一种食品类单词可以变双数?例如,假设我想要两份某种食品,我可弗成以说“I would like two beefs”或是“I would like two breads”。

Hello Abdo and thanks for writing to us!

阿布都你好,感激你的来信。

To answer your question, it depends on where you are asking for these things.

你的成绩答案取决于你在哪里询问这些任务。

If you are asking for bread in a restaurant, you're probably asking for slices (or pieces), but in a bakery, you're probably asking for loaves. If you are asking for beef in a market, you're probably asking for grams. But, in a restaurant, you're likely to ask for pieces.

假设是在饭铺里点面包,可以用slices或pieces来表示双数,但假设是在面包店里,便可以用loaves表示。假设是在市场里买牛肉,可以用grams来表示。但假设是在饭铺里,就须要用pieces来表示。

In other words, you do not add an "-s" to "beef" or "bread." That is because these foods are noncount nouns - nouns that have only one form. They do not have a plural. Meats, grains and liquids are usually noncount nouns. Sugar, salt and pepper are, too.

换句话说就是beef或bread后边不克不及加s。这是由于这类食品单词是弗成数名词,即只要一种情势的名词。它们没有双数情势。表示肉类、谷类和液体类食品的单词平日都是弗成数名词。糖类、盐类和胡椒粉类也弗成数。

To show you are talking about more than one of these nouns, you put another word or phrase in front of them. Often different foods take different wording.

假设想表达这类单词的双数情势,可以在前面添加一个单词或词组。普通情况下,不合的食品前所加的单词不合。

Below are some common phrases you might use:

以下是一些经常使用的短语:

Two bowls of rice

两碗米饭

Two ears of corn

两根玉米

Two bags of flour

两包面粉

Two pieces or loaves of bread

两双方面包

Piece also works for meats when you are asking for an amount of food for a plate:

在表示盘子里的食品数量时,可以用piece表示肉类食品:

Two pieces of chicken

两片鸡肉

Two pieces of lamb

两片羊肉

Two pieces of fish

两片鱼肉

Two pieces of beef

两片牛肉

If you are shopping in a market, you might ask for two grams of chicken, lamb or other meat.

假设是在市场购物时,可以说两克鸡肉,两克羊肉或是其他肉类。

With liquids, you often describe the container it comes in.

议论液体时平日都用盛液体容器表示。

Two glasses of water, milk or juice

两杯水、牛奶或橘汁

Two cups of coffee or tea

两杯咖啡或茶

Two cans or bottles of soda

两罐或两瓶苏取水

Two pitchers of lemonade

两罐柠檬水

For sugar, salt and pepper, it also depends on whether you are purchasing an amount or just want a small amount for your meal.

糖、盐和胡椒类也取决于购买的数量照样仅须要在食品里加一点。

Two packs or bags of sugar or

两包糖或是

Two pinches or shakers of salt or pepper

两撮盐或胡椒粉

The good news is that most other food nouns are count nouns. They have singular and plural forms. For example, "apple" is a singular count noun. To make it plural, you can just write or say "apples." Whew! That is a lot easier.

好消息是其他大年夜多半食品单词都是可数名词。他们有单双数变形。例如,“apple”是双数情势。变双数的话可以写成或说成“apples”。哇,如许简单多了。

And that's Ask a Teacher.

以上就是本期名师问答的全部内容。
