In the cold regions of the north.出自： Goldsmith
The linoleum was cold on the soles of my feet.出自： E. O
A spell of cold weather in which the pavements froze.出自： N. Mosley
- be cold用作谓语时,后面可接动词的现在分词形式。
- cold作名词时有二个意思:一是指相对于身体的温度来说,温度较低,使人感到冷,即“冷,寒冷”; 二是指由于天气寒冷而引起的“伤风,感冒”。
- cold作“冷,冷天气”解时只用单数形式,且其前须加定冠词the。cold在作“感冒”解时可用作可数名词,也可用作不可数名词,在与catch, take, get连用时,不定冠词a可有可无(英式英语用catch cold,而美式英语用catch a cold),但如果cold前面有形容词修饰,无论哪个动词与之搭配,不定冠词a均不可省略。
- cold, chilly, cool
- 1.从温度上说, chilly最冷, cold次之, cool再次之。chilly指“寒冷”, cold指“冷”, cool指“凉爽”。
- 2.从人的心理上说, chilly是人所不愿; cold多指人所不愿、令人不快,也可指所期望的低温,为人所愿意; cool则多指温度宜人,令人感到舒服。例如:
- I felt chilly in the wind.风吹得我感到寒冷。
- He has only a cold drink on a hot day.在大热天里他只有一杯冷饮。
- We hope for a cool day for the game.我们希望比赛那天天气凉爽。
- 3.用于人时，cool指心境平和、冷静, cold指冷落、不热情,而chilly则不仅指不热情,而且不友好,甚至“冷酷”。
- catch a cold, have a cold
- 这两个短语都是“患感冒”的意思。其区别在于:前者表示动态“患了感冒”; 后者表示静态“患着感冒”。
- I feel cold in the mountain area.
- I feel the cold in the mountain area.
- 我感觉到了山区的寒冷。(感受到某 地的气候冷)
- ☆ 直接源自古英语的cald；最初源自原始日耳曼语的kaldaz，意为寒冷。
