breath的详细讲解:

词语用法

n. (名词)
  1. breath的基本意思是“气息; 呼吸”,表示呼出或吸入之空气、气息时是不可数名词,一般不加冠词。表示“一口气,一次呼吸,微风”时是可数名词,可加不定冠词,但复数形式一般很少用。用于比喻则可表示“生命”。
  2. breath还可作“(一丝)痕迹,迹象”解。

词义辨析

n. (名词)
take breath, take a breath
  • 两者意思不同:前者意思是“歇口气”; 而后者意思是“呼吸一口气”。例如:
  • After running, they stopped to take breath.跑过后他们停下来歇口气。
  • Take a breath.作一次呼吸。
  • catch one's breath, get one's breath
  • 这两个短语意思不同:前者意思是“屏息”; 而后者意思是“恢复正常状态”。例如:
  • As the acrobat swung round and round, the audience caught their breath. 那位杂技演员不停地旋转时,观众们个个屏住了呼吸。
  • I need time to get my breath after running.跑完后,我需要一点时间把气缓过来。
  • out of breath, lose one's breath
  • 两者都可作“上气不接下气”解,但out of breath用作表语。
  • 常见错误

    n. (名词)
      我们到那里时,已经气喘吁吁了。

      When we got there, we were already out of the breath.

      When we got there, we were already out of breath.

      out of breath是习语,意为“喘不过气来”, breath前不加冠词。

      保姆闻到他的呼吸中有烟味。

      Mammy could smell the smoke in his breath.

      Mammy could smell the smoke on his breath.

      在此句中on不能换成in。

      You could see the superstitious crowd shrink and catch their breaths under the sudden shock.

      You could see the superstitious crowd shrink and catch their breath under the sudden shock.

      breath作“气息”解时是不可数名词,故one's breath中的one即使是复数, breath也要用单数。

    词源解说

    • ☆ 直接源自中古英语的breth,意为吸气。
