唷齁~大家好,歡迎來到英文庫,我是 Min 👋,今天咱們要來搞定 in order to(為了)的用法。

一開始先直接破哏:in order to 就跟表目的的 to 用法是一樣的!差別在於用 in order to,感覺會比單用 to 來得正式一點。只要你知道如何使用表目的時的 to,就代表 in order to 基本上你也沒什麼問題囉 😉,例如:

為了穿得下婚紗,她最近在節食。

She has been on a diet to fit into her wedding dress.
=She has been on a diet in order to fit into her wedding dress.

To fit into her wedding dress, she has been on a diet.
=In order to fit into her wedding dress, she has been on a diet .

▶️ 用 in order to 時,會比只用 to 正式一點。in order to 也跟 to 一樣,可放句中或句首。

至於更多細節,往下一探究竟吧。在這一篇,你共會學到:

  • in order to 的用法
  • in order not to 的用法

Without further ado, let’s go! 💃

一、in order to 的用法

in order to 的後面固定加原形動詞。此外,in order to 可以放句中,也可以出現在句首,兩個位置的差別只在於放句首時,後面要加上逗號,來看以下例句的示範:

She has been on a diet in order to fit into her wedding dress.

In order to fit into her wedding dress, she’s been on a diet.

為了穿得下婚紗,她最近在節食。

He used to dance every day in order to become a professional dancer.

In order to become a professional dancer, he used to dance every day.

為了成為專業舞者,他以前每天跳舞。

We have got to act now in order to save the planet.

In order to save the planet, we have got to act now.

為了拯救地球,我們必須現在就採取行動。

如果做某事的目的是為了讓別人怎樣,就在 in order to 的中間插入 for somebody,變成 in order for somebody to 就好囉,如:

The parents slowed down in order for their kid to catch up.
那對父母慢了下來,好讓孩子趕上。

He works two jobs in order for his wife to be a full-time mother.
他做兩份工作,好讓他太太當全職媽媽。

二、in order not to 的用法

前面學到了 in order to 是「為了……」,那如果是想表達「為了不要……」呢?很簡單,就在 to 的前面加上 not 即可 👌,這邊要小心別放錯位置囉,來看例句:

I left home early in order not to be late for the job interview. ⭕️

I left home early in order to not be late for the job interview. ❌

為了面試不要遲到,我早點出門。

She talked quietly in order not to wake up her family. ⭕️

She talked quietly in order to not  wake up her family. ❌

為了不要吵醒家人,她小聲說話。

In order not to disturb his wife, he sometimes slept in the spare room. ⭕️

In order to not disturb his wife, he sometimes slept in the spare room. ❌

為了不要吵到他太太,他之前有時睡在客房。

That’s it, folks!
