- ill, sick
- She's visiting her sick uncle in hospital.她到医院去看望生病的叔叔。
- The man looks pretty sick.这人看上去病得很重。

- ill, bad, evil, wicked
- 1.从所指范围上说, ill和bad范围最广,从稍有不利、不良到邪恶均可使用, evil和wicked指“邪恶”,程度较重。
- 2.从语气上说,从弱到强依次为bad, ill, evil , wicked。
- 3.evil多用于道德方面, wicked谴责意味最强。例如:
- That woman has an evil tongue.那女人有一张惯于恶语中伤的嘴。
- It's a wicked waste of money.这样浪费金钱简直是罪恶。
- 4.ill还可作“有病的,不健康的”解, bad还可作“不幸的,太可惜的”解。例如:
- Too bad you couldn't come last night.真可惜,你昨晚没能来。
- ill, unwell
- 这两个词都有“感觉不适”的意思。unwell指短期生病, ill时间相对较长。另外, unwell语气较ill委婉。例如:
- I didn't go to the concert because I felt unwell that evening.因为感到不舒服,那天晚上我没去听音乐会。
误 The ill student has been absent from school for two days.
正 The sick student has been absent from school for two days.她没有来上学,因为她必须照顾她那生病的弟弟。
误 She did not come to class because she had to look after her ill brother.
正 She did not come to class because she had to look after her sick brother.
析 ill作“有病的”解时,只能用作表语。ill作为定语是“坏的,拙劣的,不恰当的”意思, sick作“有病的”讲可用作表语,也可用作定语。
- ☆ 直接源自古挪威语的illr，意为病，邪恶。
