出题老师最喜欢玩的套路之一,就是把一些容易混淆的单词和句子放在一起考,让本来就对这些知识点“傻傻分不清楚”的人中招,无形中放倒一大片……

单词篇

1. Immoral vs. Amoral

牢记一个词,moral(道德的),前面加上表示否定的im-就变成了“不道德的”,两个都记住了,而amoral指的是“与道德无关的”。那么,immoral和amoral具体用到哪些情境中呢?下面几句话帮你新技能get!

For example, Macbeth acknowledges that it is wrong for a host to kill his guest, but he and his wife do it anyway. Their murder of Duncan is immoral. When the sharks in Jaws(电影《大白鲨》)kill people, their behavior is amoral. They don’t feel that it’s wrong to kill a human being. Here is an example of current uses of amoral:

Nature is amoral. Nature is neither good nor bad. It just is.

2. Compliment vs. Complement

要区分这两个单词很简单,complete (完全的,完整的)小伙伴们都很熟悉,complement就是为了“完整、完美”而“补充,补足”,做名词表示“补充物”。知道了这一点,就再也不会混淆这两个单词了。而compliment则意为“恭维、称赞”。

“To compliment” is to praise”; “to complement” is “to complete.”

3. Economic vs. Economical

虽然两个词说的都是经济,又同属形容词,但一个指“经济上的、经济(学)的”(economic),一个则说的是过日子“经济(节俭)的”(economical)。一个单词看你是不是持家小能手,千万别搞错哦~

A wealth of economic data and events over the course of this week will give a broad assessment of the Australian economy.

It’s usually economical to buy washing powder in large quantities.

4. Forward vs. Foreword

自己试着读这两个词,是不是要崩溃了?长得像也就算了,连发音也这么相似是要闹哪样!表捉急,从它们的中文含义入手,“前言”是由一个个词汇(word)写成哒,英文自然是foreword;搞定了这个,要记住forward(向前的)是不是就轻松多了?

The door opened, blocking his forward movements.

As a 21-year-old college student, he published a book and invited historian and scholar Yi Zhongtian to write a foreword.

5. Desert vs. Dessert

以前这两个词总也分不清,直到……“好吃你就多吃点”,这个广告词有木有很熟?对啦,“甜点(dessert)”好吃,所以要比“沙漠(desert)”多一点(s)!

说到desert,世纪君再来给你们拓展一下:英文中有一个短语get one’s just deserts,意为“罪有应得”,例如:Some people felt he had gotten his just deserts, having been imprisoned and relieved of his ill-gotten gains, but others would have preferred old-style public flogging.

6.Disinterested vs. Uninterested

都是interested加否定前缀,遇到酱紫的奇葩“双胞胎”,世纪君推荐例句区分法,记住一个例句,保证你再也不会混淆~

Some students are uninterested in schoolwork, whereas a third-party mediator is disinterested in the dispute being arbitrated.

这句话是不是说出了你的心声?对家庭作业,那妥妥的是毫无兴趣哒(uninterested),处理纠纷啥的还是要公正无私滴(disinterested)~怎么样?轻松记住了吧~

7. Lie vs. Lay

Lie和lay傻傻分不清楚?到底该怎么区分它们捏?Lie表示“躺,位于”,还有“撒谎”的意思,过去式是lay。而Lay在做动词原形时表示“(将物品)放,搁”的意思。下次再碰到这个单词,先根据时间副词和上下文判断句子时态来确定这个词的意思就可以啦。

Lie:I want to lie on that couch. / Don’t trust him! He’s lying.

Lay:Lay your jacket on the chair.

8.Farther vs. Further

只知其一不知其二的小伙伴们注意啦:“farther”和“further”虽然都是far的比较级,但区别还是有滴!Farther表示具象的,指“距离上更远”,而further表示抽象的,主要指“程度上更进一步”。看完例句,你明白了吗?

I live farther from the grocery store than you do.

Nancy read further into the comment and got angry.

9. i.e. vs. e.g.

很多缩略词也经常被用混,比如e.g.,i.e.就长得很像有木有?它俩都是拉丁语的缩写,“i.e.”指in other words,意为“换句话说,即”。而“e.g.”等于“for example”(例如),千万别记混啦!

Red apples are my favorite fruit (i.e. keep those green apples away from me!).

Would you buy me some red apples (e.g. Red Delicious, Fuji, or Gala)?

10. Flaunt vs. flout

脸盲而分不清“flaunt”和“flout”?“Flaunt”表示“炫耀”,而“flout”则表示“愚弄和叛逆”。看看下面的例句,麻麻再也不用担心我搞错啦!

She flaunted her diamond earrings by wearing her hair in a bun.

She flouted school rules by wearing a short skirt.

句子篇

1. Do they plan to start a family?

误解:他们准备结婚吗?

正解:他们准备要小孩吗?

Family在这里不是指家庭,而是指子女孩子。例如:He's devoted to his wife and family.(他对老婆孩子一心一意。)

2. He was forced to say uncle.

误解:他是被迫要喊叔叔的。

正解:他是被迫认输的。

Say uncle或者cry uncle不是让你“喊你叔”,而是表示“认输”、“投降”的意思。例如: I never say uncle.(我从不认输。)

3. You have me there.

误解:你找到我了。

正解:被你问倒了。

千万别一看到there就想到地点。You have me there.在英文里是个固定说法,表示“我不知道啊!”例如:—Why did she leave?(她为什么走了?) —You have me there.(我也不知道啊。)

4. I couldn't care less what they do.

误解:我很在意他们做什么。

正解:我一点儿也不在乎他们做什么。

Couldn't care less是个固定说法,用来形容冷漠,毫不在乎,比如:I started to get irritated by this couldn’t-care-less attitude. (这种蛮不在乎的态度惹恼了我。)

5. The fence is in excellent repair.

误解:栅栏修好了。

正解:栅栏很完好。

In good repair或者in excellent repair不是说真的有东西被修理了,而是指当前的情况或状态良好。比如:The house is not in good repair.(这房子的状况不好。)

6. Nothing of the sort.

误解:没有这一类。

正解:没有这回事儿。

Of the sort指的是之前提过的某个人或某件事,nothing of the sort则表示不是某个意思、没有这回事儿。例:—You said you didn't like him.(你说过不喜欢他。) — I said nothing of the sort.(我没说过这话。)

7. He has athlete's foot.

误解:他跑得快。

正解:他有脚气。

Athlete's foot不是夸别人有运动员一般的脚,而是指真菌感染的足藓,俗称“香港脚”或“脚气”。

8. His word is as good as gold.

误解:他说的都是金玉良言。

正解:他说话靠谱。

As good as gold通常用来形容孩子很乖,但形容一个人说的话时,则表示这个人很靠谱,值得信任,会说到做到。

9. They spent a small fortune on redecorating their house.

误解:他们装修房子没花太多钱。

正解:他们装修房子花了好多钱。

虽然small有小的意思,但是a small fortune是个固定说法,表示一大笔钱。例如:This house cost hardly anything when we bought it, but now it's worth a small fortune.(这房子我们当年买时没花多少钱,但现在可值一大笔钱了。)

10. Likely as not, we'll never be told what really happened.

误解:不可能永远不告诉我们事情的真相。

正解:很可能,我们永远也无法知道事情的真相。

(As) likely as not意指“很可能”,如:I won’t take their pills because as likely as not they’d poison me.(我不会吃他们给的药,因为他们很可能是想毒害我。)表达绝不可能,英文可说not likely。
