看绝望的主妇学高频短语:Come close to do/doing sth

Come close todo/to doing sth: 1、to almost do something:I tell you, I was so mad I came close to hitting her 2、to be almost as good as someone or something else: It’s not as good as his last movie, but it comes pretty close.

中文释义:“come close to doing” 是一个常用句式结构,用来表达 “差一点就做”、”接近做” 的意思。特别要注意的地方是这里并不使用不定式 to do。这里的 to 是介词,后面的 doing 是动名词,可以替代别的动词的动名词形态。例句:He came close to passing the exam.(他差点考试及格. )另外引申一个和“close”有关的短语“close to home”字面看的确有“离家很近”的意思,但在更多的场景too close to home是说事情触及痛处,形容让人切身体会的问题/事情。
