former的用法:

10. Grammarians have often insisted that the phrases the former and the latter should be used only to refer to the first of two things and the second of two things, respectively:
语法家们经常坚持认为,the formerthe latter 应该只用于分别替代两件事中的第一件和第二件:

用法与例句:

“But Flynn preceded Casey, as did also Jimmy Blake, and the former was a lulu and the latter was a fake.”
“但是,弗林领先于卡塞伊,就象吉米·布莱克也领先于卡塞伊一样,前件事是引人注目的而后件事则是骗人的”。

11. It is not difficult to find examples of violations of this rule in the works of reputable writers. But the fact that former and latter are plainly comparatives will make many readers uneasy when the words are used in enumerations of more than two things, much as would the analagous incorrect use of a comparative in a sentence such as Her boys are 7, 9, and 13; only the younger was born in California.
不难发现有名望的作家的作品里有违背此规则的例子。但是事实是formerlatter 仅仅是相对的,当列举两个以上的词时,许多读音就不容易弄清了, 许多时候在比较时有可能出现下句里的不正确用法:如她的儿子分别是七岁、九岁和十三岁;只有最小的儿子出生在加利福尼
