  Lesson 127 A famous actress

  听录音,然后回答问题。Who is only twenty-nine, and why is it so unclear?
谁只有29岁?为什么这件事如此含糊不清?


Kate:   Can you recognize that woman, Millie?
Millie:             I think I can, Kate. It must be Karen Marsh1, the actress.
Kate:              I thought so. Who’s that beside her?
Millie:   That must be Conrad Reeves.
Kate:   Conrad Reeves, the actor? It can’t be. Let me have another look.
I think you’re right! Isn’t he her third husband?
Millie:             No, He must be her fourth or fifth.
Kate:              Doesn’t Karen Marsh look old!
Millie:             She does, doesn’t she! I read she’s twenty-nine, but she must be at least forty.
Kate:              I’m sure she is.
Millie:             She was a famous actress when I was still a schoolgirl.
Kate:              That was a long time ago, wasn’t it?
Millie:             Not that long ago! I’m not more than twenty-nine myself.

  自学导读
1.I thought so.我也这样想。
so 是代词,意为“这样”、“如此”。 I think so的否定式为I don't think so(我不这样认为)。类似用so的短句如:
I hope  so.
我希望如此。
I expect so.
我期待如此。
I told you so.
我这么告诉过你的。
2.have another look,再(仔细)看一眼。
3. look old,看上去老。
这里look是系动词,后跟表语。
4.at least,至少。
5.I'm sure she is.我肯定她有40岁了。
其后省略了 at least forty。
6.not more than twenty-nine myself,我自己还没29岁。
其中not more than是“不超过”、“不到”的意思。这里反身代词myself是I的同位语,用来加强语气。
She did it herself.
这事是她自己做的。


语法  Grammar in use
表示猜测和推断的情态助动词must和can't(1)
表示最有力的推论的最常用的形式是must和can't。这时,它们一般与系动词be连用。肯定的推断用 must be来表示,否定的推断用 can't  be来表示,而不用mustn't。请看例句:
He can't be a doctor. He must be a dentist.
他不会是个医生。他一定是位牙医。
She can't be Danish. She must be Norwegian.
她不会是丹麦人。她一定是挪威人。
He can't be shaving. He must be having a bath.
他不可能在剃胡子。他一定是在洗澡。
It can't be cheap. It must be expensive.
它不会便宜。一定价格昂贵。
He can't be ill. He must be tired.
他不可能生病了。他肯定是累了。
