我们出门在外肯定是避免不了住酒店的,

虽然好像还没有住过五星级的酒店,

但是关于五星级酒店的小知识还是需要掌握的,

所以赶紧跟随小编来学习一下吧~

五星级的正确表达是:Five-star

If you change the word order, you have to add or remove the “s” from stars:

如果你改变词序,你就必须添加或删除s:

✦That hotel is rated five stars.

那家酒店被评为五星级。

✦We stayed at a five-star hotel.

我们住在一家五星级酒店。

 

五星

 

This is because 'star' is functioning as an adjective, and not as a noun. You can say that you saw 'Five stars' shining in the sky. But when a noun like hotel follows the word 'star' , you say, 'I had dinner in a three star hotel'. You do not say, 'three stars hotel'. Similarly, you say, 'I want five rupees'. But when the word 'rupees' is followed by the noun 'coin' or 'note' , you say, 'I need a five rupee coinnote'. You do not say, 'five rupees note'. Joggers talk about a 'twenty-mile marathon', and not a 'twenty miles marathon'.

这是因为star是形容词,而不是名词。你可以说“你看到了five stars在天空中闪耀”。但是当像hotel这样的名词跟在star后面时,你会说,“I had dinner in a three star hotel”。你不会说,“three stars hotel”。同样地,你说,“I want five rupees”。但是,当单词“卢比”后面跟名词“coin”或“note”时,你就会说,“I need a five rupee coinnote.”。你不能说“five rupees note”。慢跑者说“twenty-mile marathon”,而不是“twenty miles marathon”

Similarly:

类似的

★That house has five bedrooms.

那所房子有五间卧室。

★That’s a five-bedroom house. (NO “s” on “five-bedroom.”)

那是一个有五间卧室的房子。(five-bedroom后没有s)
