课文详注 Further notes on the text

1.I left a suitcase on the train to London the other day. 几天前我把一只手提箱忘在开往伦敦的火车上了。

句中left是leave的过去式。leave在这里表示“遗忘”、“丢下”,通常可与表示地点的短语连用。又如:

I left my glasses in the library. 我把眼镜忘在图书馆里了。

the other day表示“几天前”。the other +表示时间的名词通常只与过去时态连用。类似的短语有:the other morning/afternoon/evening/night(几天前上午/下午/晚上/夜里),the other week/ month/ year(几周/月/年前)。

2.There's a label on the handle with my name and address on it. 箱把上有一标签,上面写着我的姓名和住址。

句中介词with在这里可理解为“有”的意思。

3.fifty pence, 50 便士。

pence是penny(便士)的复数形式,表示币值。
