- gain用作不及物动词时后接介词in表示“在某方面有所增长”; 后接介词on或upon表示“接近,胜过或赶上”。
- gain, achieve, acquire, attain, earn, get, obtain, secure, win
这组词的共同意思是“取得; 获得”。其区别是：1.除secure是正式用词外,其余各词均为一般用词。2.achieve主要指取得成功、成就或实现预期目的; acquire主要指逐渐获得知识、能力、荣誉等; attain主要指达到重要目标或获得珍贵的东西; earn凭借功劳赚得或获得工资、报酬、荣誉、赞赏等; gain主要指获得或赢得有一定价值的东西; get指以各种方式获得各种所需或不需之物; obtain指获得所需之物或达到预期目的; secure指得到渴望或竞争性的东西; win指在竞争、比赛、争论或战斗中击败对手而赢得胜利或获得人们的爱戴〔好感〕等。3.achieve指克服困难之后而获得; acquire, attain, earn指通过努力而获得; gain指通过巨大努力而获得; obtain多指通过长期努力而获得,有时也指无须经过努力; 其他各词不强调通过努力与否; get可指通过各种方式获得; earn还指凭借功劳而赚得; win还指通过作出优异成绩而赢得。4.achieve强调结果; acquire强调量的增加; attain含有达到完美地步的意味; gain强调所获得之物能够造成的优势; obtain强调愿望得到满足; secure强调有把握或成功地获得。5.get是这组同义词中的最常用词,可指主动争取,也可指被动接受,有时不一定需要很大努力就能获得; acquire指持续,慢慢地获得,强调过程; 而earn, gain都强调经过艰苦努力而获得的这一结果, gain比obtain所付出的努力还要大些; win则指在竞赛中或战斗中赢得或获得胜利,可以通过努力获得,也可以偶然获得。例如:He did not get what he had earned他未获得他应得到的东西。The ability to use a language can be acquired by the act of using the language.运用语言的能力,只能通过不断练习才能获得。She gained rich experience in teaching.她获得了丰富的教学经验。I've got your telegram.我已经收到了你的电报。We wished to obtain first-hand information.我们要能得到第一手情报就好了。Industry won him his success.勤奋使他获得了成功。6.acquire的宾语多为知识、技能等; earn的宾语多为金钱、荣誉等理应得到的东西; obtain的宾语多为期望已久的东西; gain的宾语多为经验、利益、优势、好处等; 而win的宾语则为比赛、战斗等; get的宾语则比较广泛,即既可以是具体的东西,也可以是抽象的事物。例如:He got what he had earned.他获得了他应得到的东西。You must work hard to acquire good knowledge of English.你要用功,以便精通英语。Our firm has gained a good reputation.我们公司赢得了好名声。Then I'll go and get you a chair.我去给你拿把椅子来。At last, he obtained his father's pardon.他终于得到了父亲的原谅。They won the basketball match.他们打赢了这场篮球赛。7.这组动词都可跟简单宾语。get, earn, gain, obtain, secure和win可跟双宾语; secure还可跟wh-从句; win还可跟含不定式的复合宾语。此外, gain和win有时还可用作不及物动词。acquire和attain常跟抽象名词。8.attain常用于庄重场合。win语气比gain强。
- acquire obtain gain get win earn secure
- advantage benefit interest favour profit gain
