滴答网讯     enough for sb. 对某人来说足够了

enough to do something 足够做某事

错误搭配:(X) enough + ”that / so as to / so to / so that”

相关链接:enough to, so/such…that…, so/such…as to三者都表示结果,区别在于:enough to表示主观满足,在标准书面语中很少使用; so/such…that不用考虑逻辑主语问题; so/such…as to逻辑主语等于句子主语,即句子主语可以执行as to后面动词所表达的作用。

参考例题

738. The Emperor Augustus, it appears, commissioned an idealized sculptured portrait, the features of which are so unrealistic as to constitute what one scholar calls an “artificial face.”

· so unrealistic as to constitute

· so unrealistic they constituted

· so unrealistic that they have constituted

· unrealistic enough so that they constitute

· unrealistic enough so as to constitute

Key: A

OG的解释:

The verbs are and calls indicate that the sculpture is being viewed and judged in the present. Thus, neither the past tense verb constituted (in B) nor the present perfect verb have constituted (in C) is correct; both suggest that the statue’s features once constituted an artificial face but no longer do so. Also, B would be better if that were inserted after so unrealistic, although the omission of that is not ungrammatical. Choices D and E use unidiomatic constructions with enough: unrealistic enough to constitute would be idiomatic, but the use of enough is imprecise and awkward in this context. Choice A, which uses the clear, concise, and idiomatic construction so unrealistic as to constitute, is best.
