大家平常知道sure是「當然(可以)」的意思

不過在口語中它也常被用來加強語氣

通常放在主詞後面

比如:

A: Did you have a good night’s sleep? (你昨晚有睡好嗎?)
B: I sure did. (有哇。/ 睡得可好了。)

A: Your mom is a great cook. (你媽很會做菜耶。)
B: She sure is. (可不是嗎?/ 一點也沒錯。)

A: Can you show me how to get to the train station? (你可以指給我看火車站要怎麼走嗎?)
B: I sure can. (當然可以。)

You had better take care of yourself because the government sure won’t.
(你最好照顧好自己,因為政府是絕對不會照顧你的。)

That young man sure stole her heart. (那個年輕人的確偷走了她的芳心。)


在口語中也常出現sure as hell這個片語,意思是「絕對/真的……」

例如:

He sure as hell won’t get a dime from me. (他絕對不會從我這兒拿到一毛錢。)

I sure as hell hate his guts. (我真的討厭他到極點。)

Do you have trouble learning new things because you didn't understand the previous lesson?

Have you lost your curiosity, so learning English is boring?
