词义辨析

adj. (形容词)
dim, dark
  • dark与dim都有“黑暗”的意思,其区别是:
  • dark的意思是“黑暗的”,指黑暗无光,而dim的意思是“灰暗的”,表示由于光照不足所造成的昏暗状态,刚好达到看不清或分辨不清物体。修饰光线、灯光、阳光等只能用dim。例如:
  • With only the fire burning, the room was dim.只有火炉在燃烧,房里光线很暗。
  • He was reading a magazine under the dim light of a candle.他在微弱的烛光下看杂志。
  • 词源解说

    • ☆ 直接源自古英语的dimm,意为暗。
