用法
Throughout most of its history in English myriad was used as a noun, as in a myriad of men. In the 19th century it began to be used as an adjective, as in myriad men; this usage became so well entrenched that many people came to consider it as the only correct possibility. In fact, both uses have not only ample precedent in English but also etymological justification from Greek, in as much as the Greek word murias from which myriad derives could be used as either a noun or an adjective. Both uses may be considered equally acceptable, as in Samuel Taylor Coleridge's “Myriad myriads of lives.”
在英语中,myriad 的大部分历史一直被用作名词, 如在数以万计的男子 。 在19世纪,它开始被用作形容词,如在myriad men 中, 这种用法很快就被人们认可了,而且还认为它是唯一的正确用法。事实上,这两种用法不仅在英语中而且在希腊语的语源纠正中都有许多先例,因为源于myriad 的希腊语单词 munias , 既可用作名词也可用作形容词。两种用法同样被接受,如塞缪尔·泰勒尔里奇的“Myriad myriad of lives”
