- awake用作不及物动词的基本意思是“醒来”,引申可表示为“醒悟”; 用作及物动词则表示“唤醒…”或“使…觉悟”。
- awake用作不及物动词时主语通常是人,偶尔也可用spirit, memory等抽象名词; awake用作及物动词时宾语通常是人,偶尔也可用hope, memory等抽象名词。 awake 表示“醒来”时是瞬间动词,其现在完成时肯定式不可与表示一段时间的状语连用。
- awake的过去式可以是awoke或awaked,但常用awoke。过去分词可以是awoken或awaked,自20世纪后在英国和美国口语中过去分词普遍使用awaked; 在书面语中, awaked 和 awoken 两种形式美国都用。
- awake在句中用作表语,偶尔也可用作定语或宾语补足语; 在其前没有修饰语时,作定语只能后置。
- awake不受very修饰,但可受wide, full, thoroughly修饰。
- awake作“醒着的”“醒悟到的; 意识到的”解时不用于比较等级。
awake，awaken，wake和waken意思和用法都相似，既作及物动词，也作不及物动词。表示“唤醒”，“醒”时，习惯上用wake，而表示“醒悟”时，习惯上用awake和awaken。若是表示“醒着的”，只能用wake。waken和awaken比较少作为不及物动词。wake和waken后可加up，wake up（唤醒，醒来）比较常用，waken较少加up，而awake和awaken后不加up。不过文学著作上，常用waken替换wake up。
The princess did not waken for a hundred years.
- awake, awaken, wake, waken
- 1.wake是最常用词,也是最不正式的用语, awake则比wake正式些。如指“醒来”“使醒”,最好用wake。
- 2.waken和awaken常用作及物动词,多用于书面和被动语态中,表示“被唤醒”。awaken和awake多用于比喻说法,表示“觉醒; 提醒”“开始意识到”等意思。
- 4.以-en结尾的两个词只用作动词, awake除用作动词外还可用作形容词, wake还可用作名词。
