经典引文

    出自: A. Fraser

engage的详细讲解:

词语用法

v. (动词)
  1. engage的基本意思是“约定”,即凭借契约、誓言或诺言等约束人或事。用于约束别人,即表示“雇”“聘”; 用于约束自己,则表示“许诺”“保证”。这种允诺可信,有约束力,并将履行一段时间,如“订婚”等。引申可表示“占用,吸引,引起”或“使忙于,使从事”等。
  2. engage主要用作及物动词,接名词、代词作宾语。作“雇,聘”解时可以接以as短语充当补足语的复合宾语。作“保证”解时可接for+名词或that从句,也可接oneself+to- v 构成的复合结构。
  3. engage接介词in可表示“参加”; 接介词with可表示“交战”; 表示“订婚”则接介词to。
  1. engage表示“使某人订婚”,be engaged to sb表示“跟某人订婚”。

    When did he become engaged to her?
    他跟她什么时候订婚?

  2. 不加介词时engage表示“雇佣”的意思;
  3. be engaged in和engage in的比较:一般来说,两者意思相似,不过前者强调状态,后者强调行为。但在表示一时的行为时,两者有所不同。

    He is engaged in a game of tennis.
    他现在从事于打网球。

    He engages in a game of tennis every morning.
    他每天早晨忙于打网球。

词义辨析

v. (动词)
engage, hire

  • We hire out vans by the day.我们的货车按日出租。
  • I've engaged him as my new assistant.我已聘他为我的新助手。
  • 2.engage的对象一般有一技之长,而hire的对象则可以是“力工”等。例如:

  • He engaged a new secretary.他聘用了一名新秘书。
  • engage, contract, covenant, pledge, promise
  • 这组词都有“允诺”的意思。其区别是:
