Those lines..brought tears into the Duchess's eyes.出自：Thackeray

- 在书面语中, bring out可引出直接引语,作“说(出)”解。
- 尽管bring是短暂性动词,但下面各句中的bring都可以用于一般现在时,因为说话人所关心的是目前的情况。例如:What brings you back so late?你为什么这样迟才回来呀?And you understand what brings me here.你明白我为什么来这里。
- 当一个及物动词不能跟that从句时,它后面可放一个fact, idea这类名词,把that从句和它连接起来。这时that从句成为fact这类名词的同位语,也可以说它是由及物动词加名词构成的及物动词短语的宾语。例如:I brought the charge that John had murdered my wife.我指控约翰谋杀了我的妻子。Why didn't you bring it to his attention that you're too ill to go on working?你为什么不使他注意到你病得太重不能继续工作?
- bring about, bring to pass
bring about是“带来”(指客观上带来的后果,相当于lead to), bring to pass是“使发生”(通过主观努力促使事物发生变化,相当于make to happen)。例如:After strenuous talks, a cease-fire agreement was brought to pass, and in return it brought about 10 years of peaceful co-existence between the two countries.在紧张的谈判以后达成了一项停火协定,这给两国带来了10年和平共处的局面。
- bring forth, bring forward
这两个短语都是动副型短语,作“提出”解时可互换,作“产生,引起”解时只能用bring forth,作“提前,促进”解时只能用bring forward。
- bring sb to one's home, bring oneself home, bring home to sb
这三个短语形相近而义不同:bring oneself home的意思是“恢复自己原来的状况”; bring home to sb 的意思是“使某人清醒地认识到”; 而bring sb to one's home则是“把某人带回自己家”。
- bring oneself to, bring...to oneself
这两个短语意思和用法都不相同:1.bring oneself to的意思是“拿出勇气做…”“说服自己做…”; 而bring...to oneself的意思是“使自己清醒意识到”。2.bring oneself to中的to是不定式符号; 而bring...to oneself中的to是介词。3.bring oneself to中的oneself与主语一致; 而bring...to oneself中的oneself则与bring的宾语一致。4.bring oneself to多用于疑问句,而bring...to oneself多用于肯定句。
- bring...to a halt, come to a halt
这两个短语的共同意思是“停下来”。其区别是：1.bring...to a halt是及物动词短语,而come to a halt是不及物动词短语。2.bring...to a halt是外界原因使某事停下来,停下来的是bring的宾语; 而come to a halt是自身原因停下来,停下来的是句子的主语。例如:
- He brought the car to a halt.
- The car came to a halt.
- bring in, import
- bring up, educate
bring up指孩子在家里所受到的道德和社交教育; 而educate则指在学校所受到的智能、文化和学业方面的教育。如说一个孩子badly brought up,便指这孩子“不懂礼貌、不诚实”等,说一个人well-educated则指他“受过良好的教育”。例如:Would you rather be well brought up and badly educated, or opposite?你是愿受到良好的家庭教育而受不到良好的学校教育,还是愿意受到良好的学校教育而受不到良好的家庭教育?
- bring up, grow up, raise, rear
这组词(组)都有“抚养、饲养”的意思。其区别在于：1.raise是非正式用语,英式英语中指“养动植物”,美式英语中指“抚养人”。2.rear在英式英语中指“抚养人”,在美式英语中指“养动植物”,既指“从小养到大”,也指“教养”,是正式用语。例如:The mother reared her children wisely.那位母亲很会教养自己的孩子。We reared our children to help others.我们教育子女要乐于助人。She likes rearing birds.她喜欢养鸟。He used to rear pigs.他以前养猪。3.bring up是动词短语,作“抚养”解时无语体之分,侧重于童年时期的“精心教养”。例如:The woman brought up four children alone .那个妇女独自养育了四个孩子。He was brought up to believe that money is the most important thing in life.他所受的教养使他相信,金钱是生活中最重要的东西。4.grow up的意思是“成长”,侧重于“达到成熟阶段”。例如:This bush has grown up a lot in the last few months.这矮树丛几个月来已向上长高了很多。Jane is growing up so fast,I think she's going to be a tall woman.简长得真快,我想她一定能长成一个高挑儿的姑娘。Stop acting like a child with your bad temper! Do grow up.别耍小孩子脾气了!快成熟点吧。
- bring, carry, fetch, get, take
这组词都可以表示“拿”“带”。其区别是：1.bring 表示“拿来”,指从别处拿过来,方向一般是说话者,多指比较近的东西,也可以指带到一个说话人将要到达的地方,有时还可指由说话者随身带着(去某处),可以包括“带走”; take 表示“拿走”“带走”,指从此处拿出去,例如:When you go home take the letter with you.你回家去的时候,把信带去。fetch表示“去拿来”; carry则指“随身带着”,没有明确的方向性,同时强调体力方面的负担,可代替bring和take,例如:The mother carries her baby in her arms.母亲把小宝宝抱在怀里。get与fetch的意思差不多,都表示“(到别处去把某人或某物)取来”,但它更口语化。2.bring 和 take 都表示单程,只是方向相反,而fetch则表示一往一返。3.fetch强调目的性,即专门到一个地方把(某人)某物请〔带〕回来; bring则强调方向性,即动作朝着说话者的方向或所在地。4.take, bring和carry都可指携带〔运送〕较小的东西, carry还可指携带〔运送〕较大、较重的东西。5.take, bring和carry都可指人运送, carry还可指马、车等牲口或运输工具运送,也可指以管道的形式运输。
- bring carry take fetch get convey transport
- fetch:fetch指一往一返，相当于go and bring，去取了东西或带人再返回到出发处。
误 I've brought the dictionary for a week.
正 I brought the dictionary a week ago.
误 I brought him to his home.
正 I took him to his home.
析 bring sb to one's home的意思是“带回自己家”, one's须与主语一致。
