- escape用作不及物动词时,后接from(英)〔out of(美)〕,意思是“从…逃出”。
- 当escape的宾语是me, you等代词时,意思是“不被某人注意”; 宾语是one's lips时,意思是“忽然说出”。
- escape, escape from
- 两者都有“逃”的意思。其区别在于:escape一般用于指“避免”或“逃避”某种危险或厄运,它可以是有意识或无意识的行为; 而escape from一般是指从具体的、实实在在的拘禁、限制范围或危险的环境中“逃出”或“逃脱”。试比较下列两组句子:
- He tried to escape prison.
- He tried to escape from prison.
- He escaped the burning building.
- He escaped from the burning building.
- escape, avoid
- She avoided answering my question.她故意回避回答我的问题。
- There is no way to escape doing the work.没有办法不干这种活。
- escape, flee, fly, run away
- 这组词(组)都有“跑开”“逃跑”“逃亡”的意思。其区别在于:escape多表示逃跑后的结果(如未被捕获,并不指逃跑的动作); flee表示逃跑的行为本身,常含有“惧怕”的意味。例如:
- Many people fled the burning hotel.许多人逃离了着火的旅馆。
- There was evidence that the burglars had been frightened and had fled.有证据说窃贼是受惊之后仓皇逃走的。
- Why did the sportsman fly his country?为什么那个运动员叛逃到国外去呢?
- run away多用于口语,指不让人知道,有时含有“不辞而别”的意味。例如:
- He ran away twice from his boarding school.他两次从寄宿学校出走。
误 He tried to escape away last night.
正 He tried to escape last night.
误 Her address is escaped by me.
正 Her address escaped me.
析 escape作“被…忘记,没有被…注意到”解时,用sth escape sb 结构表示,而不是用sb escape sth 结构。
- ☆ 1300年左右进入英语，直接源自古法国北方语的escaper，意为脱掉斗篷，只给追踪者留下披肩；最初源自古典拉丁语的excappa：ex （脱离） + cappa (斗篷），意为脱斗篷，喻意为摆脱限制。
