用法

(1)

When majority refers to a particular number of votes, it takes a singular verb:
当majority 指特定的选票数目时, 其动词用单数:
Her majority was five votes.
她的票数是五票。
His majority has been growing by 5 percent every year.
他的票数正以每年5%的速度增长。

(2)

When it refers to a group of persons or things that are in the majority, it may take either a singular or plural verb, depending on whether the group is considered as a whole or as a set of people considered individually. So we say The majority elects (not elect ) the candidate it wants (not they want ), since the election is accomplished by the group as a whole; but The majority of the voters live (not lives ) in the city, since living in the city is something that each voter does individually. · Majority is often preceded by great (but not by greater ) in expressing emphatically the sense of “most of”:
当它是指处于多数地位的一组人或事物时,其动词既可以用单数也可以用复数,取决于把这个集体当作一个整体来看待还是当作个别的人的组合。所以我们说大多数人选举了 (不用 elect ) 他们所想要的候选人 (不用 they want ), 因为选举是由一个作为整体的群体所完成的;但是大多数投票者住在 (不用 lives ) 市区, 因为住在城市里是每个投票人作为个人所做的事情。Majority 的前面往往加一个 great (但是不加 greater ), 用来强调指出“大多数”的含义:
The great majority approved.
绝大多数同意了。

(3)

The phrase greater majority is appropriate only when considering two majorities:
词组greater majority 只是在两个多数作比较时才适用:
He won by a greater majority in this election than in the last.
他比上一次赢得更多数的选票
