close和shut的比较：两者都表示关闭的意思，大部分情况下可以互换使用。close和shut的过去分词形式都可用作形容词，但shut作形容词时不能修饰名词，可说a closed door而不可用a shut door。两者作动词时，都有“关”的解释，但用close表示这个“关”的动作相对和缓一些，如like flowers closing at night；

这三个词的共同意思是“亲近,亲密”。其区别是：familiar指经常接触,长时间的交往使彼此熟悉,亲近,甚至随便,不拘小节; close指由于感情、爱好、兴趣等方面的接近而趋于亲近,也指关系上的亲密; intimate是正式用语,指由于有某种关系(如血缘关系、朋友关系等)或深刻了解彼此的思想感情,或有共同的爱好、志向而亲近。例如:His familiar behaviour annoys me,I don't know him at all well.他随便的态度使我很不自在,其实我和他一点也不熟悉。They are close friends.他们是亲密的朋友。He is on intimate terms with my father.他和我父亲的关系很亲密。

2.close一般跟在动词之后,而closely可置于动词之后,也可置于其前。3.close表示程度,修饰形容词、副词、介词或动词,而closely表示方式,修饰动词。4.另外,两个词都有“仔细地,细心地”的意思，但closely的意味更浓一些。例如:My daughter listened closely while Steve was reading the text.当史蒂芬读这篇课文时,我女儿仔细地听着。They look into the matter closely.他们仔细地研究这个问题。
