- burn的过去式和过去分词有两种形式, burned或burnt。英式英语中用作不及物动词或用作比喻时用burned,用作及物动词或形容词时用burnt; 美式英语中一般只用burned,只有过去分词作形容词时才用burnt。
- burn用作名词时有3个意思:①“烧”,指抽象的燃烧动作或状态,是不可数名词; ②“伤”,指烧伤或刺痛,是可数名词; ③“痕”,指烧过或烧伤的痕迹,是可数名词。
- burn down, burn out, burn up
这三个短语都可表示“烧光”。其区别是：burn down强调把某物“烧毁”,除此之外还可表示火势“减弱”。例如:The fire burns down slowly.火慢慢地熄灭了。burn out强调“燃烧完了”。例如:The match soon burnt out.火柴很快烧完了。burn up除表示“烧光”外,还可表示“烧了起来”。例如:The fire burnt up suddenly.火突然烧了起来。
- burn, char, scorch, sear, singe
- all the burned wood 所有烧掉的木材(过去分词表动作)
