2 名词词组可以作后置修饰语吗

1.There is a world shortage of fuel.

2.There is a room the length of a bed.

3.This book is about Jimmy's attempts to set up a book company that is run by people his own age.

4.However, there were plenty of species the size of cows, sheep, small dogs and even those the size of a cat or chicken.

以上的句子都是正确。

如果名词词组可以作后置修饰语,那是否可以说:

He is one the same ambition as me.(他是一个和我拥有同样目标的人)

以及什么样的名词词组可以作后置修饰语?

你对第一句的理解不符合英语原有的意思。

There is a world shortage of fuel. shortage 是中心词,world是定语修饰shortage的。 of fuel 也是定语修饰shortage.  a world shortage of fuel =a world fuel shortage. 

句4:the size of a cat or chicken. cat和chicken 要用复数。

你写的这句He is one the same ambition as me. 是错误句子,应改为He is  the one who has the same ambition as me.

你的一些疑问涉及惯用法,不要理解为名词后置作定语。更不可以随意当公式用。

1.There is a world shortage of fuel.

=There is a world which is shortage of fuel

=There is a world which is short of fuel

2.There is a room the length of a bed.

=There is a room that is the length of a bed

3.This book is about Jimmy's attempts to set up a book company that is run by people his own age.

=This book is about Jimmy's attempts to set up a book company that is run by people who are (at/of)his own age.

4.However, there were plenty of species the size of cows, sheep, small dogs and even those the size of a cat or chicken.

=However, there were plenty of species which are the size of cows, sheep, small dogs and even those the size of a cat or chicken.

He is one the same ambition as me.

解答:He is one the same ambition as me可以理解为“He is one who is (of) the same ambition as me”

备注:名词短语作后置定语,可以理解为省略了“主语+系动词be并只保留表语部分”的定语从句省略形式。

温馨提示:以上解答仅供参考。
