In point of fact, he was a hooligan.他自称是富商的儿子,实际上,他是个流氓。3.as a matter of fact常用来引导令人感到意外或惊奇的消息或情况。例如:“You speak English very well.”“Yes, well,I am English as a matter of fact.”“你的英语说得很好。”“是啊,我本来就是英国人”。

两者区别在于:1.fact的意思是“事实”,以区别于想象或虚构的事物。例如:Most of his ideas can be rendered down to a system of thinking based on outdated facts.他的大多数观点都可归纳在一个基于过时的论据的思想体系里。2.event也可指日常小事,但主要指重要的事件(国家的、社会的、边界的等)。例如:It was quite an event when a woman first became prime minister.妇女首次当上了首相的确是件大事。Two events received public attention during the month.这一个月中有两件大事引起了公众的注意。Events proved the folly of such calculations.事情的进展证明了这种估计是愚蠢的。
