believe的详细讲解:

词语用法

  1. 区别believebelieve in的用法,believe someone指“相信某人所为”,believe in someone指“信赖某人的为人可靠”或“相信某人将有所作为”;
  2. 如果动词不是be,一般believe后用从句。

    I believed (that) you belonged to that company.
    我相信你属于那家公司。

  3. believe为被动语态时,后面习惯接不定式。

    You are believed to be honest.

  4. believe可理解为suppose。

    She believes she told me,but she is not sure.
    她以为已经告诉我了,但她自己也不太肯定。

  5. make believe是习惯用语,意为“假装”。

    She made believe to be ill.
    句中believe是不定式,但因前面是make,不带特定宾语,所以省略to。

v.(动词)
  1. believe的基本意思是“相信”,指相信事物的真实性或相信某人说的话,引申可作“信赖”或“信仰”解。
  2. 在口语里, believe还可作“想”“认为”解,表示和缓的、不太肯定的口气,相当于suppose,有时则仅仅表示客气,不愿说得太绝对。
  3. believe用作及物动词时,后面可跟名词、代词或that/wh-从句作宾语,也可接以that从句(表示将来)充当直接宾语的双宾语; 还可接以“(to be+) n./adj. ”或动词不定式充当补足语的复合宾语(表示过去或现在)。用作不及物动词时,后面常跟介词in。
  4. believe是状态动词,通常不用于进行时态。
  5. 在回答前面的问句时, believe须接so或not替代问句中肯定或否定的宾语。
  6. believe作思维活动的动词,常可用于转移否定句型,即句中的否定虽然出现在主句的主语动词之前,但否定的却是从句中的谓语、宾语或其他成分。
  7. believe的过去分词believed在句中常可用作表语,其后接动词不定式或that从句,意思为“据信…”,用于新闻报道中,以避免提及说话人。
  8. believe 等动词后面的复合宾语的第一部分如果不是名词或代词,而是从句、动词不定式短语或动名词短语,通常要用it来代替,把从句或短语放到句子后部去。
  9. 在简略答语中一般不单独使用believe,而用I (don't) believe so.或I believe not。
  10. I believe you, thousands wouldn't!表示马马虎虎地同意某人刚说的话的相当幽默的用语,意思是“我倒是相信你,可别人呢?”例如:“Excuse me,Kathy—don't think I'm not sitting next to you because I don't like you or anything —it's just that I've seen Ruth over there, and I've not spoken to her for ages!”“I believe you, thousands wouldn't!” “请原谅,凯茜,不要以为我是因为不喜欢你什么的才不坐到你旁边,只是我看见了露思在那边,再说我好久没和她说过话了!”“我倒是相信你,可别人呢?”
  11. If you believe that, you'd believe anything!是表示一点不相信的用语,意思是“你要是相信那个,那世上就没有你不相信的事了。”
  12. Would you believe是企图抓住某人注意力的叫喊,经常是在某事的真实性有可疑之处时使用这一用语,意思是“你们也许会相信”。例如:“Ladies and gentlemen, this is, would you believe, the last rabbit of its kind in the world,”the man at the fair shouted as he held up what looked like an old rag!“女士们、先生们,这是,——你们也许会相信——世界上这类兔子就这一只了。”集市上的那个人举起一个像块破布似的东西叫道。
  13. 在believe后用作宾语补足语的to be短语中, to be常可省略,但若其所表示的时间先于谓语动词,则必须保留,且须用动词不定式的完成式。

词义辨析

v.(动词)
believe, believe in
二者都有“相信”的意思。其区别在于:believe表示相信某人说的话是真的或相信某事会发生(或已经发生); 而believe in却多表示信赖某人或信仰某事物,相信其存在或价值,其后常接真理、宗教一类的词,接sb 作宾语则指相信某人的人格。例如:
I can believe him, but I cannot believe in him.我可以相信他的话是真的,但是不相信他的为人。
believe, accept
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。
believe, consider, think
believe与consider, think在用法上有以下相同之处:
1.后面可以接that从句。例如:
Do you believe〔consider, think〕 that jogging is helpful to your health? 你认为慢跑对你的身体有益吗?
2.后面可以接由名词或代词+to be(常常省略)的复合宾语。例如:
Do you believe〔consider, think〕 Mr. Bell (to be) a good doctor? 你认为贝尔先生是个好医生吗?
I don't believe〔consider, think〕 it possible. 我认为这件事情是不可能的。
Everybody believes〔considers, thinks〕 his living alone strange. 人人都认为他离群独居是不可思议的。
believe, trust
这两个词都有“相信”“信任”的意思。两者的区别在于:trust表示相信某人的为人或能力; believe则表示相信某人所说的话或其人格的可靠性。
believe that, trust that...
参见trust条。
believe trust confide rely
这些动词均含有“相信,信任”之意。
  • believe:believe普通用词,常表示一种缓和、不太肯定的口气。
  • trust:trust指绝对相信或信赖某人。
  • confide:confide侧重忠诚可靠与可信赖。
  • rely:rely指在相信的基础上可进一步依靠,着重可靠性。
believe believe in
这一对词语都表示“相信不疑”的意思,但词意有细微的区别。
  • believe:believe表示“相信”、“信以为真”(to accept as true)之意,它是及物动词,其后直接跟宾语。
  • 你相信他的报告吗?
  • Do you believe his reports?
  • 我几乎不能相信自己的眼睛。
  • I could hardly believe my eyes.
  • 古时候,人们认为地球是扁平的。
  • In ancient times it was believed that the earth was flat.

  • 我们不信鬼神。
  • We do not believe in ghosts.
  • 他相信多锻炼身体就会有好处。
  • He believes in getting plenty of exercise.
  • 法国大革命时代的人们信奉自由、平等及博爱。

  • think:think普通用词,指按照自己的意见提出看法。
  • believe:believe通常指根据一定的证据,经思考后而认为属实。
  • count:count指作出判断后而得出的看法等。
  • deem:deem正式用词,常用于法律、文学,强调作判断而不是思考。
  • reckon:reckon指对人或事作全面“权衡”,把各方面意见考虑进去后得出结论。

  6. 我认为这是个错误,不是吗?

    纠正:do you believe what he says?

    翻译:你相信他所说的吗?
