這句片語通常是使用在問題中,而且我們有兩個很喜歡用它的原因
The first reason is you're not really sure what the answer will be.

第一個原因是當你不確定答案是什麼的時候
Sometimes when we ask a question, we have an idea about what kind of answer they will give us.

但在這情況下,也許我們不能確定

第一個例子,我們不是很確定答案是什麼時

So you could say, let's say you're at your friend's house, and it's a rainy night, it's getting late, you don't want to drive home.
假設你在你朋友家,已經很晚了而且又在下雨,你可以說,你不想開車回家
So you could say, "Do you by any chance have a room we can stay in tonight?"
So you could say, "Do you by any chance have a room we can stay in tonight?"
你可以說:「有可能有房間可以讓我們今晚留在這裡嗎?」
So it's also connected with number two, it's making it more polite, but you're not really sure if they have a room or not.

它跟第二個也是有連灌的,它可以讓你在不確定有沒有房間的情況下問得更有禮貌些
The second one, making a request more polite.

第二個原因,讓要求變得比較禮貌
We can use the example of asking someone to borrow something.

我們可以在跟別人借東西時使用這句
So if you go to your mom or dad and you say,

你可以跟爸爸或媽媽問
"Hey dad, can I by any chance borrow your car for the weekend?"
"Hey dad, can I by any chance borrow your car for the weekend?"
「嘿,爸爸,我有沒有可能可以在週末借用你的車子?」
It's making the request sound a little nicer, a little softer.

這請求聽起來會好一點,柔和一點
So in this case, notice that when we use by any chance, a lot of times the intonation goes up.
So in this case, notice that when we use by any chance, a lot of times the intonation goes up.
所以在這情況下,要注意我們講by any chance時,很多時候都要把聲調提高的
"Do you by any chance know where Paul is? I think he's avoiding me."
"Do you by any chance know where Paul is? I think he's avoiding me."
「有沒有可能你會知道Paul在哪裡?我想他在迴避我」
