分類: 相似字比較

one day是過去或未來的某一天,要寫成兩個字

放在句首時後面要逗點

someday則只能指未來的某一天,要寫成一個字

放在句首時後面不要逗點

比如:

She believes she will be famous one day.
= She believes she will be famous someday.
(她相信她有一天會很有名。)
(此時one day = someday,因為是未來的事)

Someday you’ll know what it’s like to be a parent.
= One day, you’ll know what it’s like to be a parent.
(有一天你會知道為人父母的感受。)
(此時one day也等於someday,因為仍是未來的事)

I ran into a high school classmate one day.
= One day, I ran into a high school classmate.
(有一天我巧遇高中同學。)
(此時就只能用one day,因為是過去的事)
