Hopeful

袁國勇表示若市民3月前完成接種兩劑疫苗,政府可以在暑假通關,期望到了明年聖誕,社會便可以回復正常。雖然疫情已經持續兩年,但是我們仍然抱有希望(hopeful),好期待不用戴口罩。

形容詞hopeful解「抱有希望的、充滿希望的」,即是full of hope。英文有不少形容詞也是這個結構,例如,beautiful(美麗的)--full of beauty、careful(小心的)--full of care、wonderful(精采的)--full of wonder、thankful(感激的)--full of thanks、joyful(快樂的)--full of joy、useful(有用的)--full of uses。

Hopeful有3個常用的句式--to be hopeful about something、to be hopeful of something/doing something、to be hopeful that……指「對某事物抱有希望」。例句︰We are hopeful about the economy following the COVID-19 pandemic.(我們對新冠狀病毒疫情之後的經濟充滿希望。)Many people are hopeful of a successful vaccine.(許多人希望疫苗成功。)We are all hopeful that the worst of this COVID-19 pandemic is behind us.(我們都希望這場新冠狀病毒疫情最糟糕的時期已經過去。)
