focus的详细讲解:

词语用法

  1. focus on sth表示“集中于某事”;
  2. focus作“中心,焦点”的解释时,用词范围很广,常被滥用,需注意。
v.(动词)
  1. focus用作名词时原始意义是“火炉”,引申为“焦点”,转化为动词则为“(使)聚焦”,“(使)集中”。即“调整…的焦点或焦距以便看清”,引申则表示“使(注意力等)集中于某物”。
  2. focus用作及物动词时,可以接望远镜、焦点等作宾语,也可以接阳光等作宾语,还可以接目光等作宾语。focus用于比喻作“致力于”解时,则可以接mind, attention等作宾语。
  3. focus也用作不及物动词,这时常和介词on连用,表示“聚焦于…”“致力于…”等。

词义辨析

v.(动词)
focus, centre, centralize, concentrate
这组词的共同意思是“集中”。其区别在于:centre强调事或物所集中的那个中心点; focus强调同类事物汇集在一点上,融成一体; centralize则用于那些能集中又能分散的事或物,尤指集中权力或类似的东西; concentrate强调人类为达到目的而采用的技巧和方法、纪律及为此所做出的努力。例如:
The conversation was centred on the election.会谈的中心问题是选举。
The troops concentrated near the station.部队集结在车站附近。
He focused the sun's ray on a piece of paper with a burning-glass.他用一面凸透镜把阳光在纸上集成焦点。
She is trying to centralize all power into her own hands.她力图把所有权力集中在自己手中。
concentrate focus
这两个动词均有“集中,聚集”之意。
  • concentrate:concentrate指把人或物集中在一起,也可指把精力或注意力集中于某一事物上。
  • focus:focus侧重指把光、热、射线等集中于一点,也可指把思想或精力等集中于某人或某事情上。

常见错误

错句举例与错句分析
  • 错句:in a patient-focused hospital, nurses care the patients.

    纠正:in a hospital, nurses focus on the patients.

    翻译:在医院,护士以病人为中心。

    分析:一般不会用patient-focused,而时用固定搭配focus on something。
