如何用英语表达“不确定”?

3. Apparently

It is used when what you are saying is based on what you have heard, not on what you know is true and therefore fact.

当你所说的内容是听说的,而不是自己确定这件事是真实的、是事实的时候,你可以用apparently。

例句:

Apparently, she resigned because she had an argument with her boss.

显然,她辞职是因为和老板吵了一架。

There is, apparently, going to be an announcement about the new CEO tomorrow.

显然,明天就会有新总裁的通知了。

4. As far as I know/as far as I am aware

These two expressions are used when you have partial (incomplete) knowledge of an issue or fact.

如果你对某个问题或事实了解得不是很全面,就可以用这两个表达。

例句:

No one has complained, as far as I know.

就我所知,没有人抱怨。

As far as I am aware, the invitations to the party have all been sent.

据我了解,派对的邀请函已经全部发出了。

5. To the best of my knowledge

This phrase is used for saying that you think something is true, but you are not completely certain. This is quite a formal expression.

当你认为某事是真的,但又不完全确定的时候可以使用这个短语。To the best of my knowledge是相当正式的表达。

例句:

To the best of my knowledge, no similar book has been published.

就我看来,还没有类似的书出版过。

6. Not to my knowledge

This is used for saying that you think something is not true, although you are not completely certain.

当你认为某事不是真的,但又不完全确定的时候可以用这个表达。

例句:

- Has the report been sent yet?

报告交上去了吗?

- Not to my knowledge.

据我所知,还没有。

7. I imagine/suppose/guess

These are used when you think something is probably true, but you can't be sure. "Guess" is more frequently used in American English, although you can hear it in British English, too. "Suppose" is more characteristic of British English and is often used in the negative.

这些词可以用在当你认为某事可能是真的,但又不确定的时候。尽管英式英语也使用guess,但这个词更多地出现在美式英语中。Suppose在英式英语里用得更多,而且经常用在否定句中。

例句:

I imagine they've already left for the airport.

我认为他们已经离开机场了。

I suppose she must be delighted about getting the job.

我猜她得到这份工作一定很开心。

I don't suppose you'd consider staying for another week?

我想你并不打算再待一个星期吧?

I guess he will want to meet all the team members before the conference.

我猜他想在会议前和团队成员见面。
