[析] at用于具体时刻之前,如:sunrise, midday, noon, sunset, midnight, night。
[误] Don't sleep at daytime??
[正] Don't sleep in daytime.?
[析] in 要用于较长的一段时间之内,如:in the morning / afternoon, 或 in the week / month / year. 或 in spring / supper /autumn / winter等等。?
[误] We visited the old man in Sunday afternoon.?
[正] We visited the old man on Sunday afternoon.?
[析] in the morning, in the afternoon 如果在这两个短语中加入任何修饰词其前面的介词都要改为on, 如:on a cold morning, on the morning of July 14th?
[误] He became a writter at his twenties??
[正] He became a writter in his twenties??
[误] He went to New York to find a job in sixteen years old.?
[正] He went to New York to find a job at sixteen.?
[析] 在具体年岁前用at, 如:at the age of 12, at your age, 等等。?
[误] We went to swim in the river in a very hot day.?
[正] We went to swim in the river on a very hot day.?
[析] 具体某一天要用介词on, 又如:on New Year's Day?
[误] I'm looking forward to seeing you on Christmas.?
[正] I'm looking for ward to seeing you at Christmas.?
[误] I haven't see you during the summer holidays.?
[正] I haven't seen you since the beginning of the summer holidays.?
[析] during表示在某一段时间之内,所以一般不与完成时搭配,如:I visited a lot of museums during the holiday. 而for表示一段时间,可以用于完成时,如:I haven't see you for a long time. 而through 用来表示时间时则为"整整,全部的时间"。如:It rained through the night.?而since则是表达主句动作的起始时间,一般要与完成时连用。?
[误] At entering the classroom, I heard the good news.?
[正] On entering the classroom, I heard the good news.?

[误] In the beginning of the book, there are some interesting stories.?
[正] At the beginning of the book, there are some interesting stories.?
[析] at the begining与at the end都是指某事物的开始与结束部分,均不指时间范围,而in the beginning 则是指开始一段时间。in the end=at last是指"最终,终于"之意。?
[误] Till the end of next week. I will have finished this work.?
[正] By the end of next week. I will have finished this work.?
[析] by 引起的时间状语表示了动作的截止点,其意思为"不迟于某一时刻将工作做完",所以主句一般是完成时态。当然可以有将来时态,如:I'll be there by five o'clock.而till则表达其一动作一直持续到某一时刻,但句中的动词一定要用持续性动词,而瞬间的截止性动词应用其否定句式,如:I won't finish this work till(until) next weekend.?
[误] He came to London before last weekend.?
[正] He had come to London before last weekend.?
[正] He came to London two weeks ago.?

[误] I can help you repair this bike. You will get it after two hours.?
[正] I can help you repair this bike. You will get it in two hours.?
[析] 中文经常讲两小时之后来取,两天内会修好,而这个介词在英文中要用in而不要用after。其原因有二,①after 多用于过去时,如:I arrived in New York. After three days, I found a job in the bank. ② after 加时间是表达一个不确定的时间范围,如:after three days, 即三天之后的哪一天都可以。所以在许诺若干时间内会完成某事时,一定要用介词in。?
[误] Three days after he died.?
[正] After three days he died.?
[正] Three days later he died.?
[析] after 与 later都可以用来表达一段时间之后,但它们所处的位置不同,after 在时间词前,而later在时间词后。?
[误] She hid herself after the tree.?
[正] She hid herself behind the tree.?
[析] after多用来表达某动作之后,所以有的语法书中称它为动态介词,如:I run after him. After finishing my homework, I went to see a film. 而behind则多用于静态事物之后。?
[误] There is a beautiful bird on the tree.?
[正] There is a beautiful bird in the tree.?
[析] 树上长出的果实,树叶要用on, 而其他外来的人、物体均要用in the tree.?

[析] 在表达地理位置时有3个介词:in, on, to。 in表示在某范围之内; on表示与某地区接壤;to则表示不相接。如:Japan is to the east of China. ?
[误] I arrived at New York on July 2nd.?
[正] I arrived in New York on July 2nd.?
[析] at用来表达较小的地方,而in用来表达较大的地方。at常用于at the school gate, at home, at a bus stop, at the station, at the cinema, at a small village。?

[析] 在报纸上的新闻要用in, 而在具体某一版上,或某一页上则要用on。?
[误] The school will begin on September 1st.?
[正] School will begin on September 1st.?
[析] 这里的school应看作不可数名词泛指学校的课程,即开学之意。要注意,有些活动场所当表达正在从事该种活动时不要加冠词,如:at table (吃饭), When I came to Tom's home, they were at table. 还有: at desk (学习),at work (工作) at school (上学), in hospital (住医院) at church 作礼拜?如加上定冠词则另有他意,如:at the school 即在学校工作或办事,in the hospital 即在医院工作或去看望病人。?
[误] In my way to the station, I bought a newspaper to kill time.?
[正] On my way to the station, I bought a newspaper to kill time.?

[误] I'm sorry. I have to get out the bus at next stop.?
[正] I'm sorry. I have to get out of the bus at next stop.?
[析] get in, 与 get out是两个相反的词组。get in 为上车,而get out为下车,但语法家认为这里的in与out为副词,所以其后不能接名词,我们可以讲We'd better get in. 或We'd better get out. 还有一组词组有关上下车:get on/off(a train, a ship, a struck) get into/out of (a car, taxi…)?
[误] Be careful? The temperature of the water is ninety degrees over zero.
[正] Be careful. The temperature of the water is ninety degrees above zero.

[误] Do you have no other clothes except those??
[正] Do you have no other clothes besides those??
[析] beside 是"在……旁边",如:The students stood beside their teachers.而besides是"除……之外,不仅……而且……,除了……以外还有……", 如:I studied English besides French, when I was in college. 而except 则是从同一类物体中去掉某一部分,如:I come here every day except Sunday. 而except for 是指去掉不同种类的事物,如:The room is clean except for two chairs. 而except that则要加从句。?
