underway 是什麼意思

作者 

underway 也可以寫成under way。這個字看起來一點也不怎麼樣,不是生字,但是該怎麼用,是什麼意思呢?

 

1 : in or into motion 行動中
▪ The train has had to stop briefly, but it should be under way again soon. 火車得做短暫的停留,但是應該很快就會再開駛了。

▪ The ship finally got under way. [=began sailing] 這艘船終於開航了。

 

2 : happening now  正發生當中
▪ Preparations for their arrival are wellunder way. 迎接他們到來的準備已經快完成了(完成三分之四了)。

▪The banquet is well underway. 晚宴已經快結束了。

▪ A search is under way. [=in progress]已經開始搜索了。

不是太難吧。
