content的详细讲解:

词语用法

  1. content指“容量”,contents指“内容”。如一个斗的content是一斗,当里面只有一升东西的时候它的contents是一升;
  2. 表示一篇文章或一本书的“内容”应用content

    The essay is excellent both in form and in content.
    这篇论文在格式和内容上都很优秀。

  3. contents noted (来信的内容已经被注意了)和contents duly noted是商业信函里的陈套语,避免在一般通信中出现;
  4. contents表示“目录”时,跟table of content有一样的意思;
  5. content作形容词时和contented都指“知足的”,要注意:content是表语形容词,不用在定语用法里。如绝不可说He is a content man ,该说He is a contented man。content在表语用法中强调“无所它求”的意思,而contented强调“被使满足”的意思,是动词content的过去分词。content后接不定式时,指“因为别无它法而愿意……”,而contented不常用于这种结构。 I must content myself with answering only part of your questions 里的with不可改作by;

    I should be content to remain where I am.

  6. to one's heart's content为固定词组,意思是“尽情地做某事”。
n.(名词)
  1. content的基本意思有三:第一,可表示“所容纳之物,所含之物”,指某一物体中所含的具体东西; 第二,表示一本书或文章中所包含的“内容”,可以是具体的内容,也可以是抽象的内容; 第三,表示某一容器的“容量”或某一物质在另一物质中的“含量”。
  2. content表示“内容”时用单数和复数的意思不同,用复数表示具体的内容,而用单数则表示与形式相对应比较抽象的“要旨,内含”; 在表示“含量,容量”时只能用单数; 表示“所容纳之物,所含之物”时多用复数。
v.(动词)
  1. content的基本意思是“使满足,使满意”,指做一些让人高兴的事情,以使他人感到满足,其宾语多为人。
  2. content主要用作及物动词,后接名词或代词作宾语。
  3. content常用于content oneself with结构,表示“满足于…”。
  4. content的过去分词contented可用作形容词,在句中作定语。
n.(名词)
  1. content用作名词时意思是“满足,满意”,通常指一种心理感受,感觉某事很舒适或很令人高兴。
  2. content是不可数名词,常用于to one's heart's content短语,表示“尽情地”。
adj.(形容词)
  1. content作形容词时意思是“愿意和渴望得到满足的”,这种满足的程度不一定是完全彻底的,但人已不必再为此或为彼而心烦意乱了。
  2. content后可接with引起的短语或动词不定式,表示“能够这样(做)已经知足了”,有时还可接that从句。
  3. content在句中主要用作表语。
  4. content没有比较级和最高级。

词义辨析

adj.(形容词)
content, contented, satisfied
这三个词的共同意思是“满足的,满意的”。其区别是:
1.content表示“甘心的,甘愿的”。例如:
Many men are content with a routine life.很多人满足这种有规律的生活。
contented指安于现状已无他求,有“知足”的意味。例如:
Tom was a lazy boy. He just passed the exam and was contented with the marks he got.汤姆是个懒家伙,他只满足于考试的分数刚好通过。
satisfied表示某事完全满足了个人的心愿、欲望、需要或要求,有积极愉快的意味在内。例如:
The teacher was quite satisfied with his answer.老师对他的回答很满意。
2.content多用作表语,后面还可接不定式。例如:
He was quite content to do so.他甘愿这么做。
contented可用作表语或定语。例如:
He has a contented smile.他有一丝满意的笑容。
satisfied多用作表语,很少作定语。例如:
The mother was satisfied.妈妈很满意。
satisfaction content
这一对名词都有满足的意思。
  • satisfaction:satisfaction满足,为名词,指达到希望时所感觉到的较强的满足感,其形容词为satisfactory(指事物,不可用人作主语)或satisfied(可用人作主语)。
  • 他的成功令我非常满意。
  • His success gave me great satisfaction.
  • 你的工作令人满意。
  • Your work is satisfactory.
  • 我对你的成功感到满意。
  • I am satisfied at your success.
  • content:content强调安于现状或知足常乐。
  • 他这人从不知足。
  • He takes content in nothing.
  • 他这人容易满足。
  • He takes content in everything.
  • 他满足于住在乡下。
  • He is content to live in the countryside.

常见错误

n.(名词)
  1. 他手提箱里装了些什么,十分可疑。

    The content of his suitcase is doubtful.

    The contents of his suitcase are doubtful.

  2. 土壤中腐殖质含量很高。

    Humus contents of the soil is very high.

    Humus content of the soil is very high.

    content作“所含之物”解时,通常用其复数形式; 而content of表示“…的容量,含量”,应用单数形式。

错句举例与错句分析
  • 错句:i'm quite content for the offer you have made.

    纠正:i'm quite content with the offer you have made.

    翻译:我对你刚提出的建议很满意。

    分析:content作形容词“满意的”只能作表语,不能作定语,常用be content with或be content to do sth的表达方式。

词源解说

  • ☆ 15世纪初期进入英语,直接源自中世纪法语的conentt;最初源自拉丁语的conenttus,意为包含的,满足。
