使用 rather than 时,还应注意以下两点:

    1. rather than 很像并列连词。其前后都应是相互对应的词语,但接不定式时,常可省去不定式符号 to

    2. rather than 可分开使用,和 would had 构成“ would / had rather than ”结构, than 前后也是相互对等的结构。试比较:

    1 She would rather have the small one than the large one.


    2 Tom would rather be liked than feared.


    3 Wouldn't you rather be liked than feared?


    但当 would rather 被用作谓语动词后接宾语从句时,从句中的谓语动词应为虚拟形式。例如:

   John wants to see me today. I would rather he came to tomorrow than today. 约翰今天想去看我。我宁愿他明天来看我而不是今天。(句中came不是表示过去而是表示将来)

     Wed rather he paid us the money tomorrow. 我们宁愿他明天付给我们那笔钱。
