由 ”疑問詞 + 主詞 + 動詞” 形成的名詞子句 如果名詞子句裡的主詞和主要子句的主詞或受詞一樣 而且該名詞子句裡用的是 “can / should + 原形動詞” 時 就可以把主詞和助動詞省略 變成「疑問詞 + to V」的縮略寫法, 成為一個片語 例：Could you tell me how I can get to the train station? = Can you tell me how to get to the train station? I am not sure what I should do. = I am not sure what to do. 不過由Yes / No 疑問句變成的名詞子句則不能這樣變化 現在大家來練習看看, 把下面的名詞子句改為縮略的片語: 1. Please let us know when we can move in. = Please let us know _______________________ 2. It is not my responsibility to teach you how you should do your job. = It is not my responsibility to teach you __________________________ 3. Can anyone tell me which way I should go? = Can anyone tell me ________________________ 4. I have no idea how I can make that much money. = I have no idea _________________________ 5. Do you know what you should do next? = Do you know __________________________?
Answers: 1. when to move in 2. how to do your job 3. which way to go 4. how to make that much money 5. what to do next
