词义辨析

v. (动词)
employ, hire
  • 这两个词都有“雇用”的意思。其区别是:
  • 1.employ表示一般意义的“雇用”某人,被雇用人工作相对稳定,有固定薪水,还可能晋升职务等,多用于政府部门、工商企业、银行、公司、团体等各种机构,如果用于私人雇用时,即讲好工作待遇,就可开始工作; hire作“雇用”解时,是美式英语或非正式的英语用法,多指用低薪雇用临时工人或进行特殊工作的人。例如:
  • One thousand hands are employed at this factory.这个工厂雇用1000名工人。
  • They employ day-labourers during the busy season.他们忙时要雇短工。
  • We hired a driver to take us on a tour of the city.我们雇了一个司机带我们浏览这个城市。

  • The new road will employ thousands of men.修这条新路要用成千上万的人。
  • The store hired two more clerks for the sale.这家商店为了这次廉价销售又雇了两名店员。
  • During the holiday we hired a boat and went fishing.假期我们租了一条船去钓鱼。
  • employ, use
  • 这两个词都可表示“用,使用”。其区别是:

  • They employed the weapon of self-criticism.他们使用了自我批评的武器。
  • May I use your knife?我可以用你的刀子吗?
  • 2.use的宾语多为具体的事物; employ的宾语多为时间、权力等抽象名词。例如:
  • He employed his spare time in reading.他利用空闲时间看书。
  • We used 20 tons of coal last winter.去年冬天我们用了20吨煤。
  • 3.use要比employ常用。
