"錢不是問題 "說成「Money is not a problem」就有問題了

過人君 2022/11/21 檢舉 我要評論

我們日常交流中總會碰到這種情況:

錢不是問題

距離不是問題

等等表達「……不是問題」,大家都習慣于用problem,Money is not a problem. 這種說法別人或許可以聽懂,但很不地道。地道的說法是object這個單詞。

Money is no object.

……is no object, 固定句型,……不是問題

I am ready to travel anywhere. Distance is no object.

Choose whatever you like from the menu. It‘s your birthday so money is no object.

這里來看看object這個單詞,這個詞意思比較多,需要根據具體語境分析

object to 反對

They also object to giving the president and his family any immunity from prosecution.

他們還拒絕給予總統及其家人任何免于起訴的特權。
