boast的详细讲解:

词语用法

v. (动词)
  1. boast的基本意思是“升,提”,指说话人在确实具有夸耀理由的基础上,对自己的某一事(如业绩、成就、学识、机灵、祖先等)有比事实更大的虚饰,更多的炫耀,有言过其实的成分,可译作“夸口”或“吹嘘”,但并不一定都有坏的含义。引申表示为“因拥有…而自豪”。
  2. boast用作不及物动词时,意为“自夸”“自吹自擂”,常接介词of或about; 用作及物动词时可跟简单宾语,也可跟that从句。接以“(to be)+ n./adj. ”充当补足语的复合宾语时则表示“自诩是”“自夸是”。
  3. boast用在进行时态中时,并不真正表示“正在吹嘘”,而是说他有爱吹嘘的坏毛病。
n. (名词)
  1. boast作“自夸的话”解时有贬义,作“引以为荣的事物”解时不带贬义。
  2. boast后常跟that引导的同位语从句。

词义辨析

v. (动词)
boast about, boast of
  • 这组词语都表示夸耀的内容,常可互换,只是of所指内容比about更具体些。试比较:
  • The old woman often boasts about her grandson.
  • 那老太太常常夸耀自己的孙子。
  • The old woman often boasts of her grand- son's high grades in school.
  • 那老太太常常夸耀她孙子学习成绩 优秀。
  • boast, brag, glory
  • 这组词意思相近。它们之间的区别是:
  • 1.boast既可作“吹嘘”解,也可作“以…为自豪”解; 而brag只作“吹嘘”解,无“以…自豪”之义; glory只可作“自豪”“得意”解,不含“吹嘘,吹牛”之义。
  • 2.boast和brag都可用作及物或不及物动词; 而glory只用作不及物动词,且多和in连用。
  • 3.boast指并非全无根据地“吹嘘”; 而brag则指毫无事实依据地乱“吹”。
  • boast,brag,crow,pride
  • 这些动词均含有“自夸,吹嘘”之意。
  • boast普通用词,指对自己所做的事,自己的长处、财富以及家庭等的夸耀,常含言过其实的意味。
  • brag非正式用词,其夸耀和吹嘘意味强于boast,到了过分夸大,有时令人讨厌的地步。
  • crow多指大声吵嚷地吹嘘,夸耀自己做某事比他人做得好。
  • pride与boast的意义较接近,指炫耀、夸口,自鸣得意,常与反身代词连用。
