adequate的详细讲解:

词语用法

adj. (形容词)
  1. adequate的基本意思是数量或程度上“充分的,足够的”,指仅够某事或某场合之所需,而不会超过很多。adequate也可指性质或质量上“适当的,适度的,正好合适的”,指达到要求,符合客观标准。adequate还可指能力或资历等“胜任的”“尚可的,差强人意的”,指合乎一个不太高或不太严格的标准。
  2. adequate在句中多用作表语,后接介词to表示“恰当的”“称职的”“令人满意的”,接介词for表示“足够的”。adequate有时也可用作定语。
  3. adequate不用于比较等级。
  1. adequate后接to或者for的时候,有时表达相同的意思。

    Our fuel supply is adequate to heat the house this winter.
    Our fuel supply is adequate for heating the house this winter.

词义辨析

adj. (形容词)
adequate, ample, enough, sufficient
  • 这组词都有“足够的”意思。其区别在于:
  • 1.enough为一般用语,有时可与adequate互换。enough常用来表示数量或程度,不宜用于表示性质、质量; 而adequate既可用于描述数量或程度,也可用于描述性质、质量。
  • 2.adequate表示“仅够满足”“恰好满足”; enough和sufficient还可表示足够满足; 而ample表示充足而有余,即ample>sufficient>enough>adequate。
  • 3.sufficient与enough同义,确切程度比 enough 大,前者多用于需要的满足,后者则多用于欲望的满足; 前者多用于书面语,后者多用于口语。
  • 词源解说

    • ☆ 1610年左右进入英语,直接源自拉丁语的adquatus,意为平均的。
