- afternoon, after noon
- after与noon这两个词连写和分写在含义上是有区别的:连写时指“下午”,即morning和evening之间这段时间; 而分写时指“正午以后”,着眼于时间的起点,即12点以后。试比较下面两句：
- What are you going to do this afternoon?
- What are you going to do after noon?
- in the afternoon, on the afternoon
- on the afternoon指的是某天的下午或具体的一个下午; in the afternoon指不断重复的下午,使下午具体化了,起强调作用。例如:
- I was at home on the afternoon of last Monday.
- Mostly I slept in the mornings, and in the afternoons, sometimes.
- 在多数情况下,我都是每天上午睡觉, 有时也下午睡觉。
- in an afternoon, in the afternoon
- 这两个短语意思不同, in an afternoon指一个下午,而in the afternoon指今天下午。例如:
- It can be done in an afternoon.
- It can be done in the afternoon.
