v. (动词)
demolish, break, destroy, ruin
  • 这组词都含有“破坏”“毁坏”“消灭”的意思。其区别在于:
  • 1.destroy和ruin这两个词所表示的“毁坏”都含有“彻底”的意味,有时可互换。destroy强调“彻底性”; ruin强调不可修复。例如:
  • The rain has ruined〔destroyed〕 the crops.这雨把庄稼全毁了。
  • 2.break, destroy和demolish的主语可以是人,也可以是事物; 而ruin的主语多为天灾人祸等无形的力量。例如:
  • The windshield broke but did not shatter.挡风玻璃裂了,但没有碎。
  • All the intruders were destroyed.所有的入侵者都被歼灭了。
  • That street was demolished a few years ago.那条街于几年前拆除了。
  • She has a very real grievance against the hospital since the operation which ruined her health.自从她做过手术后,健康状况变坏,所以她确实对医院有怨言。
  • 3.break的宾语可以是有形物,也可以是非物质性的事物; destroy和demolish用于具体事物可指“高楼大厦”等; 用于抽象事物时destroy指“名誉”“声望”等, demolish则指某人的论点、论据等。ruin的宾语则多是美好珍贵的事物。例如:
  • His mother's heart will break if he leaves her.如果他离开母亲,她的心会碎的。
