本文旨在帮助大家正确理解和掌握表示一日三餐的 breakfast, lunch, supper前是否使用冠词的问题。

注:不连用冠词的用法尤其注意以下搭配:have breakfast (lunch, supper), after breakfast (lunch, supper), at breakfast (lunch, supper), before breakfast (lunch, supper), during breakfast (lunch, supper), for breakfast (lunch, supper), over breakfast (lunch, supper), since breakfast (lunch, supper), without breakfast (lunch, supper)。如:

注:有时也可不直接用 much, little 等修饰,而换用其他表达。如:
