follow的详细讲解:

词语用法

  1. follow可表示“在……之后”,常作及物动词,后面不需要再加介词after。

    The duckling followed its mother everywhere.
    小鸭子们紧跟着母鸭到处走。

  2. as follows属于固定的习惯用语,在以词组形式出现的时候,follow不可以单数形式出现,不管句子主语是单数或复数,只可以as follows的形式出现。

    The rule is as follows.
    The rules are as follows.
    规则如下。

  3. follow后的介词如upon有时可省略。

    A strange thing followed upon the incident.
    这个事件后跟着出了很奇怪的事情。

  4. (as) in the following同as follows一样都属于固定搭配,两者不可混用,如不可随意更改成as following或in the follows;
  5. the following可同时作单数或者复数,随句子的意思而改变。

    The following is my full name.
    The following are our full names.

  6. following有时以介词形式出现,常见于报纸上。

    Following the ceremony a reception was held.
    在典礼之后,会举行一场招待会。

  7. 要注意,follow后不能接宾语和不定式的结构。

    I followed him to go into the house.
    这种说法是不可以的。应改成I followed him into the house。

v.(动词)
  1. follow的基本意思是“跟随”,可用于时间、顺序,也可用于逻辑上或理解上的相随,引申可表示“追求”。
  2. follow可用作及物动词,也可用作不及物动词。用作及物动词时,接名词、代词作宾语。
  3. follow作“从事,经营”解时,不直接以行业名称作宾语,而应以profession或trade等作宾语。
  4. follow可用于存在句型。其位置在there之后,主语之前,主谓倒装。
  5. follow可用于It follows that-clause结构,意思是“说明”“证明”。
  6. as follows是个惯用语,不管主语是单数还是复数,也不管使用何种时态,都用as follows。

词义辨析

v.(动词)
follow sb, follow at sb
follow at sb 的意思是“跟随某人”,而follow sb 的意思是“紧跟某人”。例如:
  • She always follows at her husband.
  • 她总是跟随着她的丈夫。
  • She followed her husband.
  • 她紧跟在她的丈夫之后。
follow advice, follow out sb's advice
这两个短语的意思并不完全相同,前者是“听从某人的忠告”的意思,后者有“完全遵照(某人的忠告)”的意味。
following, followed
followed和following在句中作状语时,其逻辑主语应该是句子的主语。如果主语是follow的执行者,应该用following; 如果主语是follow的承受者,就应该用followed。试比较:
  • Tom came in, followed by his father.
  • 汤姆进来了,后头跟着他的爸爸。
  • Tome came in, following his father.
  • 汤姆跟着他的爸爸进来了。
follow, chase, pursue, tag, tail, trail
这组词都有“跟随,追踪”的意思。它们的区别是:
1.follow指跟随起引导作用的人或物或遵循他人的计划; 而pursue指为达到某个目的而坚持不懈地紧跟、追赶或追求某人、某物或某种事业。跟随他人的计划时用follow,追随自己的计划时用pursue。例如:
She has pursued the goal of perfection in her art.在艺术中,她追求完美。
She pursued the study of French for four years.她坚持学了四年法语。
The country has always pursued a policy of peace.该国一直奉行和平政策。
2.chase指迅速追赶在逃的目标以便将其抓获或赶走,而follow则指继之而来或去。tag指不断地纠缠或恼人的尾随某人; tail指紧密尾随并监视; trail指跟踪追击。例如:
The dog chased a mouse, but could not catch it.这狗追赶老鼠,但没有捉住。
The policeman chased the thief.警察追赶小偷。
What are you tagging along for?You aren't invited.你怎么跟着我?又没邀请你。
The detective tailed the thief through the crowd.侦探在人群中跟踪小偷。
The hunter trailed the wounded buffalo through the bush.猎人穿过灌木林追猎受伤的水牛。
3.chase较follow, pursue更具感情色彩,除常表示不友好之外,其行动也可能是出于嬉戏或高兴。还可表示一种热切的,为满足情欲而进行的搜寻。例如:
The boy chased his playmate around the block.那个男孩绕着街区追逐他的玩伴。
He is the man who chased after woman all his life.他就是那个一生都在追求女人的男子。
follow, ensue, succeed, supervene
这四个词都有“接着发生”的意思。它们的区别是:ensue指具有因果关系的事物连续发生; follow指事物按照时间顺序、逻辑关系连续发生; succeed强调相似的人或事物、事件按一定的顺序不间断的接踵而至,尤指时间或空间上的连续; supervene指意外的发生。例如:
After the heavy rains, floods ensued.暴雨之后发生了水灾。
A silence succeeded his words.他说完话后是一阵的沉默。
The meeting went on until lack of time supervened.会议因时间不足而结束。
pursue follow chase hunt trace track trail
这些动词均含“跟随、追踪”之意。
  • pursue:pursue指坚持不懈、毫不动摇地紧跟、追赶某人、某物或某个事业。
  • follow:follow普遍用词,含义最广,多指跟随起引导作用的人或物,跟随的动机可以是善意的,也可能是恶意的。
  • chase:chase指快速追赶或决心追踪,褒义贬义均可用。
  • hunt:hunt原义为“追猎、猎取”,现用于指追捕或搜寻逃犯等。
  • trace:trace指根据线索或足迹进行跟踪。用于抽象意义时指找到某事物的根源。
  • track:track指沿着人或动物留下的印迹或行迹追踪。
  • trail:trail一般指跟踪追击。

常见错误

v.(动词)
  1. 我要跟随他到车站。

    I shall follow behind him to the station.

    I shall follow him to the station.

    follow所表达的“跟随”这一概念本身含有“在后”的意思,所以不用再加behind。

  2. 我照他的样子操练。

    I followed him to do the drills.

    I did the drills after him.

    follow后不可接以动词不定式充当补足语的复合宾语。

错句举例与错句分析
  • 错句:the pages are all mixed up; this should follow after that.

    纠正:the pages are all mixed up; this should follow that.

    翻译:这些页全部都错乱了,这一页应该是跟在那一页后面的。

    分析:follow可表示“在……之后”,常作及物动词,后面不需要再加介词after。

词源解说
