- famous as, famous for
这两个短语的共同意思是“以…而出名”。其区别是：1.主语为人时, famous for意为“以某种知识、技能而闻名”; 而famous as意为“以某种身份出名”。2.主语为事物时, famous for意为“以其内容、特征而闻名”; 而famous as意为“以某种形式而出名”。3.主语为地点名词时, famous as意为“以某种特产而闻名”; famous for意为“以产地或地方而闻名”。
- famous, celebrated, noted, notorious, renowned, well-known
这组词的共同意思是“著名的,出名的”。其区别是：1.famous指受到公众广泛的公认,并为大家所熟悉、热爱和尊敬,含有名气、名声在外的意思,可用于人、事物等; celebrated指有更大更久远的名望,有为人赞颂或受人尊敬的含义,可较为客观地表示某人或某物受到的赞扬或奖励; well-known指出名的、为大家所熟悉的、众所周知的一般的人或事; notorious表示由于不良或丑恶行径而出名; renowned着重表示由于某种卓越的性质或成就而享有更高、更持久的声誉; noted着重表示由于特定行为而一时出名,但持久或公认的程度都不如其他名词。2.famous比celebrated常用, celebrated有时有夸张的含义,它比famous更突出。3.celebrated和renowned语气比famous强, well-known和noted语气都比famous或notorious轻。4.famous多用于褒义; notorious多用于贬义; celebrated和renowned都是褒义词,后者更为正式; well-known和noted都是中性词,可用于褒义,也可用于贬义。例如:He is a famous painter.他是一个著名画家。Hangzhou is celebrated for its beautiful scenery.杭州以其美丽的风景著名。Edison was renowned as a great inventor.爱迪生作为伟大的发明家而享有盛誉。He is notorious as a deadbeat.他是个声名狼藉的二流子。Jim was noted for arriving late for work.吉姆曾因上班迟到而出过名。The restaurant is well-known for its fried noodle.那家饭馆以炒面著称。
