John climbed to the topmost branches of the old ash tree.出自：A. Ransome
I climbed up the goat-paths.出自：J. Fowles
- climb的基本意思是“攀登,向上爬”,是指步行或用手脚(也可借助工具)向上攀登,也可指日月的上升。引申可表示在社会地位上“钻营”“向上爬”; 在非正式用语中可作“匆忙或费力地穿衣或脱衣”解,此时常与介词into连用; 也可指货币“增值”。
- climb用作及物动词时,可接名词或代词作宾语; 用作不及物动词时,可接down, on, out of和up等,表示动作的方向。
- climb up本身已有“向上”的含义,所以climb up中的up有时可以省略。
- climb to, climb into
climb to的意思是“爬到或升到…”,强调位置; climb into的意思是“爬进”,强调动作。例如:I climbed to the top of the mountain yesterday.我昨天爬到了山顶。She climbed into the lifeboat.她爬进了救生艇。
- climb, ascend, mount
这三个词的共同意思是“攀登”。其区别是：climb指费力地攀登或上升; ascend是正式用语,多用于指登至极高的地方; mount指向上登的过程,尤指上马等一次跳跃的动作。例如:It took me almost three hours to climb the steep hill.我花了几乎三个小时才爬上这座陡峭的山。He ascended the stairs.他登上了楼梯。The soldiers stood beside their horses, waiting for the order to mount.士兵们站立在马的旁边,等待上马的命令。He mounted his horse away.他骑上他的马走了。
- climb, crawl
这两个词的共同意思是“爬”。其区别是：climb是指“用手脚攀登”,一般用于垂直地或倾斜地向高处爬; 而crawl一词是水平地“顺地爬,蠕动,匍匐前进”的意思。例如:After many attempts to climb it, the mountain was finally conquered〔overcome〕 in 1985.经过多次努力攀登,这座山终于在1985年被征服了。The baby crawled across the room.那个婴孩从房间的这边爬到那边。
- climb, scale
- ascend climb mount
误 He climbed quickly on a tree.
正 He climbed quickly into a tree.
析 这里不用介词on,而用介词into,是因为进入了茂密的枝叶之中。同时, on a tree通常是指固定的东西,如果实和树叶。
误 We climbed the peak by cable car.
正 We went up the peak by cable car.
析 climb表示“爬,登”,一般指用步行方式或手脚并用; 用其他方式或工具(如“车载”)时,用go up。
误 We forgot our key so we had to climb off the gate.
正 We forgot our key so we had to climb over the gate.
析 表示“翻越”“爬过”时, climb需接 over ,不能用off。
误 We are going to climb tomorrow.
正 We are going climbing tomorrow.
析 表示体育或娱乐活动,应说go+ v -ing,而不用go+to- v 。
误 You climb the tree to see the fight.
正 You climb tree to see the fight.
误 He that would eat the fruit must climb tree.
正 He that would eat the fruit must climb the tree.
析 在说“爬树”时,如果不指明爬什么树或爬哪棵树,则不用冠词,只说climb tree; 但如果特指,则要加冠词。
