- 同receive不同，accept是“接受”，而receive是“收到”。accept a present是“接受一个礼物”，不会退还，而receive a present是“收到一个礼物”，有可能会退还；
- accept和accept of以前可以替换使用，现accept of用的比较少，往往带有“正式”或“垂恩”之意。只适用于说接受present，favour，love，hospitality等，不适于接受theory，advice，apology，challenge，offer，invitation，ruling等；
If you accept, please let me know immediately.
I am pleased to accept your invitation.
不用I shall be pleased to accept your invitation.
She accepted my claim to be heard.
- accept的基本意思是“接受”,如接受礼物、邀请、好意、批评、建议、接纳为成员等等。引申可表示“承认; 同意; 认可; 相信”,如答应某些条件、相信某种解释、相信某事属实、认同某种理论、承担责任、容忍或忍受困境等等。在商业用语中accept则表示“承兑; 接受(某种付款方式)”。
- accept具有明显的主观色彩,不仅客观上“接”,而且更主要的是主观上的“受”。accept某人的劝说或者建议时表示你情愿地按照他们的劝说或建议去做; accept令人不愉快的情形时表示你认识到这是不能改变的、必须接受的现实,即含不情愿和勉强之意。
- accept主要用作及物动词,其宾语可为名词、代词或动名词,也可接动词不定式。作“认可; 相信”等解时可接that/wh-从句。作“承认…是…”解时还常接以“as+ n./adj./v -ing”充当补足语的复合宾语,这时as不可省略。
- accept表示声明“接受”或“不接受”邀请,通常用现在时态。表示为大学或俱乐部所接受时,后面所跟的介词是 by 而不是 to; 表示“聘用”时,后面接介词 for。
- “我很高兴接受你的邀请。”习惯说I am pleased to accept your invitation.不说 I shall be pleased to accept your invitation.
- “对不起,我不能接受你的邀请。”习惯说I'm sorry.I can't accept your invitation.不说I'm sorry.I shall be unable to accept your invitation.
- accept与accept of在古英语中可互换, accept of稍正式,含“垂恩”之意,多用于接受a present, a favour或love等,而不用于接受theory, advice, apology等。现代英语中accept of已经废弃。
- accept, believe
这两个词都可以表示“相信”,但含义上有细微差别。accept强调的是对某人的解释或声明的真实性感到满意或认为可以接受,有时含有不加鉴别或者无可奈何甚至是违心的意思,常可译为“认可”; 而believe则强调相信某事是真的。例如:He accepted the explanation without question.他认可了这个解释,没有提出疑问。We no longer believed the lies spread by them.我们再也不相信他们散布的谣言了。
- accept, receive
这两个词都含有“收到”的意思。在表示“赞同某一意见或看法”时可互换。例如:Her husband did not accept〔receive〕 her story.她的丈夫不相信她的话。The theory was not received〔accepted〕 as truth by the broad masses of people.这一理论并未被广大人民群众当成真理。其区别是：1.从搭配上说:在表示“受到教育〔惩罚,支持〕”和“接待客人”等意时只能用receive,不能用accept; 而在表示“接受某条件”时却只能用accept,而不能用receive。2.从含义上说: receive只表示“被动地收到”这一事实,而accept则多了一层主观上“某种程度甚至完全赞同”的意味。例如:I've received an invitation but I don't think I'll accept.我收到一份邀请,但不准备接受。Though he has received several offers, he can accept only one of them.虽然他收到了几处的聘请,但他只能接受其中之一。再如,收到(receive)别人的致歉,但不一定予以承认(accept); 头脑可以接收(receive)某一思想,但不一定认同(accept); 一个人可以为社会所容纳(receive),但不一定为他人所理解(accept)。简而言之,“accept=receive+乐意地”。此外, receive之后还可以拒绝甚至退回,而一经accept,则除极特殊情况外,一般是不能再拒绝或退回的。因此,复信中写I've received your invitation.就显得不够礼貌了。
- accept as, consider as
accept as是有了客观因素后才“把…看成是…”; 而consider as是指经过主观上的思考或亲身经历后才“认为…是…”。
- ☆ 14世纪中期进入英语，直接源自古法语的acceptre，意为给什么拿什么；最初源自拉丁语的capree，意为心甘情愿地领受。
- receive willingly receive with favour take sth offered accede to adopt agree to assent to consent to grant as satisfactory receive with approval acknowledge admit allow assume bear undertake
- accepted adj. 公认的
- accepts:释义 acceptvt.1. 接受,领受;答应,同意He has accepted our invitation.他已经接受了我们的邀请。2. 承认,认可【(+as)】【O2】【+that】The…
