Victorious deeds Flam'd in my heart, heroic acts.出自：Milton
Had Satan been able to have acted anything by force.出自：Defoe
- act与action 的区别：act指短暂，简单的动作，而action指持续，复杂的动作。使用act of cruelty,act of kindness,act of madness时（后都是接of和抽象名词）只用act,不用action。cruel act(ion),foolish act(ion)等，均是前面用形容词，更惯于使用action。act比action具体，action比act抽象，如in word and act中word与act均是具体的，in speech and action中，speech与action都属抽象的；
- act the hero (装出英雄气概），act the child (做出儿童模样）等表达方式里多用the,而不用a；
At first he was a little shy in class, but now he acts more natural.
Even elephants have been known to act dead.
- act的基本意思是“行为,行动”,指时间较短的具体的“行为”,此行为可以由个人、群体或不具人格的实体来完成,而且不受动机、性质或结果的限制,具有单一性及完满性。act 也可用于和思想或言语相对照的“行动”。
- act, action, deed, operation
这组词的共同意思是“行为”。其区别是：1.act和action常可替换,但act多指短暂的、单一的、个人的、具体的行为,强调后果; 而action多指时间较长、过程较复杂的持续动作或行为,有时也指抽象的行动,强调过程。deed指比较复杂或业已完成的行为,多指伟大的、感人的行为; operation常指几个工作的组合。2.act和deed是可数名词; action常用作可数名词,有时用作不可数名词; operation可用作可数名词或不可数名词。3.act和operation是一般用词; action是较正式用词; deed是正式用词。
- act, act out
它们的共同意思是“表演”,其区别在于:1.act的宾语一般是戏剧或角色, act out的宾语则可以是故事、对话等。2.act out更强调把内容、情感、思想等用动作而不是用语言表现出来。
- act as, act on
这两个短语都可译作“起作用”,但含义并不相同, act as是“以…身份而起作用”; act on是“对…起作用”。也就是说act as的宾语是“起作用”的主体; 而act on的宾语则是“作用”客体。
- act as, act for
这两个短语意思有些相近,但并不相同,其区别在于:1.act as后接表示职务的名词,而act for后多接人称代词,而少接职务名词。2.act as强调的是职务,而act for强调的是所代替的人。3.带有act for句中的职务是临时的; 而act as后接的职务既可是临时的,又可是长期的。4.act as后接职务的是一个人,而担任act for句中的职务者有两个人,其中for后的人是正式的,长期的, act的逻辑的主体则是代理的,临时的。5.act as后接的(职务)名词前往往省略冠词; 而act for后接的名词一般情况下有the。
- act as, act like
它们并非同义短语,后者只是一种自由搭配。它们的区别很明显:前者的意思是“是”,后者的意思是“像(而不是)”。另外, as后常省略冠词,而like后则多用冠词。再有, as短语一般看作主语补语(表示主语身份),而like短语一般看作方式状语。
- act as, serve as
这两个短语都可表示“充任,担任”。其区别是：serve as多指长期供职; 而act as所指时间则相对较短。试比较:
- He serves as manager and interpreter.
- She will act as my guide tomorrow.
- act the fool, act like a fool
- act, behave
这两个词的共同意思是“做”,在很多场合下可以互换。其区别是：1.act强调采取行动; 而behave强调人的行为是否符合某种行为标准,如道德或礼貌等。2.act作“做”解时是不及物动词; 而除用作不及物动词外,还可用作及物动词,跟反身代词。
- act, perform
这两个词的共同意思是“演出”,常可互换。例如:Who is acting〔performing〕 the part of the main hero in the play?谁在扮演剧中的主角?They acted〔performed〕 well.他们演得很好。它们之间的区别是:1.act强调的是“扮演(某角色)”; perform强调的是“表演(给人看)”,后者更侧重于表演的能力,技巧或效果。2.act指戏剧、电影,而perform除指戏剧电影外,还包括器乐演奏及舞蹈等。3.act的主语通常是人,而perform还可以是动物等。
