devote的详细讲解:

词语用法

v. (动词)
  1. devote的基本意思是因特殊用处或目的而心甘情愿地献出某物,即“把…奉献,把…专用于”,常表示由于如同起誓般紧迫的动机而放弃和献出。
  2. devote是及物动词,常接时间、精力、生命等抽象名词作宾语,而“专用”和“奉献”的对象则由介词to引出。
  3. 表示“忠于”“致力于”“献身于”时可用devote oneself to结构,也可用be devoted to结构。
  4. devote的过去分词devoted可用作形容词,在句中作定语或表语。

词义辨析

v. (动词)
devote, dedicate
  • 这两个词的共同意思是“贡献,奉献”。其区别在于:devote强调从个人的热情或愿望出发去干某事, dedicate包含有devote的意思,但重点是指从事一种庄严的、正式的、神圣的事业或工作。例如:
  • He devoted the whole night to light music.他整个晚上都在听轻音乐。
  • He dedicated his life to training students.他毕生都在培养学生。
  • 常见错误

    v. (动词)
      他专心致志地学习英语。

      He devotes his attention to study English.

      He devotes his attention to studying English.

      He devotes his attention to the study of English.

      devote to后只能接名词或动名词作宾语,而不能接动词不定式。

      他把许多业余时间用在体育运动上。

      He devoted much of his spare time for sports.

      He devoted much of his spare time to sports.

      “把…用在”应用devote...to, to和for不可以换用。

      她忠于职守。

      She devoted to her duty.

      She devoted herself to her duty.

      She was devoted to her duty.

      devote是及物动词,须接宾语,表示“忠于,献身于”等应用devote oneself to或be devoted to的形式。

      他把所有的钱都捐献给了那户穷苦人家。

      He devoted all his money to the poor family.

      He contributed all his money to the poor family.

      devote的宾语一般是抽象事物,如生命、时间、精力等。宾语如果是一些具体的东西,如钱、书籍、衣物等,则须用动词contribute。
