    (1) [cannot be better] ——用在形容词性的词组或双音形容词后面,表示程度很高
    那就再好不过了
    (2) [but;however;only] ——作连词,表示转折,
    病人精神还不错,不过胃口还不好
    (3) [only;just;merely;nothing but;no more than]∶副词,指明范围;只,
    仅仅不过是个小孩子

    可是 kěshì
    [but]——连接分句、句子或段落,表示转折关系,常和前面的“虽然”相呼应;先由“虽然”引出一层意思,后用“可是”一转,引出相反或不一致的意思。相当于“但是”
    他虽然有病,可是仍继续工作
