- band是个多义词，其意思大致可分为三组：一是“群，伙，帮，队”，主要指为了一个共同的目标而以特殊方式聚集在一起的一小群人， 如一小批志愿者或一帮歹徒；流行音乐乐队、伴舞乐队、管乐队、鼓号队、爵士乐队等，也可指兽群、畜鸟群等；二是“带，带状物， 条纹， 条饰”，如系物的带、箍、条，衣服上的嵌条、镶边，牧师服和晚礼服胸前的两条饰带及领圈， 机械中的传送带、传动带，计算机术语中指磁鼓或磁盘上的一组磁道， 物理学术语中指频带、波段、光带、(光)谱带等；三是“段”，即在数量、程度、质量、年龄、价格等方面相近或相关的范围、段等。
- band作“乐队 ”“人群，团伙”解时是集合名词，用作主语时如着眼于整个的“队，群”,谓语动词用单数形式；如着眼于队、群中的成员，则谓语动词用复数形式。bands 则指多个乐队或多个团伙。
- band作“用带绑扎”解时是及物动词,接名词或代词作宾语; 作“结合起来,伙同”解时,是不及物动词,常与against, into, together连用。
- band, belt, ribbon, strap, stripe
- 2.从功用上说：band主要用来系、固定，也用来装饰； belt主要用作腰带；ribbon主要用作装饰；strap和stripe则用途较广。
- band, circle, crowd, gang, group, herd, host, mass, mob, multitude, set
- 这组词的共同意思 是“一伙人”。其区别在于：
- 1.从组成上说：band常指有共同目的的、有领导者的一群人。 circle指因志同道合而形成的圈子或结成的团体，聚会频繁，文明高雅。crowd指毫无秩序地挤在一起的人群， 含有混乱、拥挤的意味。gang指为一个目标而聚在一起的一伙人， 常指在一起干坏事的人。group既可指有组织、有秩序的一群人， 也可指为一定目的临时聚在一起的一伙人；可指志趣相投的人，也可指社会团体；关系可密切，也可以是泛泛之交。herd 指有盲目追随心理的一群人。host指散落开来的一群人，也指军队或备有武装的人。mass指群众， 民众。mob指乌合之众或心怀不满而聚在一起寻衅滋事的一群人。multitude常指人数庞大的人群。set指有共同社会地位或相同目的的社会团体，也可泛指广泛的人群， 有时可指势力集团。
- 3.从修辞色彩上说：band, gang, herd, mob多含贬义；set指势力集团时也含有贬义。
- 4.从语体上说：host, set是口语用词；multitude是正式用词或较陈旧用词。
- ☆ 直接源自古北欧语的band，意为用来捆绑用的细带子。
