make do 乍看之下似乎是個不合文法的片語




圖片裡是二次大戰時英國政府出的一本小冊子叫Make Do And Mend



( mend [mɛnd] 的意思是「修補;縫補」)

B: We don’t have time to get a new one now. You’ll just have to make do.

A: It must be hard for Jack to afford mortgage payments with what he makes.
B: He and his wife have a baby on the way. I guess they’ll have to make do.

A: Your laptop is very slow. Maybe it’s time to get a new one.
B: I’m trying to save up for my trip to Italy this summer. I can make do for now.

A: May I borrow your stapler? Mine’s broken.
B: Mine’s missing. Can you make do with some paper clips?
