brief的详细讲解:

词语用法

adj.(形容词)
  1. brief的基本意义是“短暂的”,含有“压缩”的味道。只用于时间而不用于距离。偶尔用于长度时多含有滑稽可笑的意味。
  2. brief还可指内容“简洁的;简要的”。

词义辨析

adj.(形容词)
brief, short
这两个词的共同意思是“短的”。其区别在于:brief着重指时间、言谈、篇幅等“短暂”“简短”; short是普通用词,泛指各种“短”。例如:
My acquaintance with him was brief.我与他相识的时间不长。
I went on a short trip.我作短暂的旅行。
brief concise compact
这些形容词均有“简短的、简洁的”之意。
  • brief:brief指语言文学简明扼要,短小精悍,也用于指时间意义很强的短暂的过程。
  • concise:concise书面用词,可与brief换用,指语言文学言简意赅,无多余的话。
  • compact:compact指为了方便把某物压缩到最小程度,也指紧凑、简洁的文体。

词源解说

  • ☆ 13世纪晚期进英入语,直接源自拉丁语的brevis,意为短的,低的,小的,浅的。
