1. —When is Alice’s birthday?
—Her birthday is on September 5th. ——她的生日是9月5日。
1) when作疑问副词时, 意为“什么时候，何时”,
例如: When is the party? 晚会是什么时候？
2) 名词后加“’ s”这是名词所有格的形式，表示所
有, 意为“??的”。 例如: This is Tom’s book. 这是汤姆的书。 名词所有格的变化规则： ①以s结尾的复数名词只在词尾加“’”。 例如：students’ book 学生用书
②如果表示两(几)个人共同拥有, 在最后一个名词的 词尾加“’s”； 如果表示两(几)个人各自拥有, 则须在每个名词后都 加上“’s”。 例如: Joan and Helen’s father 琼和海伦的父亲(两个人的父亲是同一个人) Joan’s and Helen’s rooms 琼的房间和海伦的房间(两个人各自拥有一个房间)
表示所属关系, 即表示某物是“谁的”。 名词所有格常见的结构有两种：
一、’ s 所有格
表示有生命的人或动物的名词所有格, 单数名词和不以 s 结尾的复数名词一般在词尾加 “ ’ s”，以 s 结尾 的复数名词只在词尾加“ ’ ”。
例如: Kate’s cat 凯特的猫， Children’s Day 儿童节，
the girls’ books 女孩们的书
▲无生命事物名词的所属关系, 一般常用“ of ＋ 名 词”来表示，即 of 所有格。例如： a map of China 一幅中国地图 the legs of the table 桌子的腿
▲of 所有格与 ’ s 所有格有时可以互换，不过要注意
The name of the cat is Mimi. (of 结构，物主 the cat在后）
The cat’s name is Mimi. (’s 结构，物主 the cat 在前 ）
2. —How old are you? ——你多大了？ —I’m fifteen. ——我十五岁了。 how old意为“多大年纪；几岁”，常用于询问年龄。
year (s) old”表示。
“What’s ... age?”和“How old is / are ...?”意思相
同, 可互换。例如：What’s your age? = How old are yo u?
