词义辨析

v. (动词)
devour, consume, eat, ingest, swallow
  • 这几个词的共同意思是“吃”。其区别在于:eat最常用,指放入口中经过咀嚼再吞咽下去的过程,对人或物都适用,引申指缓慢地逐渐腐蚀或消磨过程; consume指吃完全部食物或喝光所有饮料,引申指消耗光所有的物质、金钱等; devour强调狼吞虎咽地吃,引申指吞灭或毁灭; ingest是生理学用语,指咽下或吸收的过程; swallow指不经过充分咀嚼就囫囵吞入肚中,强调匆忙。例如:
  • The termites have eaten deep into the wood.白蚁已经把木头蛀得很深了。
  • The fire soon consumed the wooden building.大火不久就烧毁了这座木头建筑物。
  • He was devoured by hate.他满腔怨恨。
  • Twelve workers have ingested radioactive substances well above the permitted maximum.12名工人摄入体内的放射性物质已大大超过最大限度。
  • This drug can't be swallowed; it has to be injected.这药不能吞服,只能注射。
