经典引文

    出自:E. P. Thompson

improve的详细讲解:

词语用法

  1. improveimprove upon的区别:前者指的的是“在好或不好的基础上进行修改,改进”,而后者则是指“在好的基础再更进一步”。

    This poem cannot be improved.
    这首诗太好或太坏,以致于不能修改了。

    This poem cannot be improved upon.
    这首诗好得不能再好了。

  2. improve跟better的区别:前者指的是大方面的,或是人物内在的提高,以及比较抽象的事物的提高,如improve one's health。后者指的是人的地位,物质或经济条件上的提高,如better the conditions of the workers(工人生活条件的提高);
  3. 在使用improved同improving时要特别注意,避免误用improved而形成被动语态。
v.(动词)
  1. improve的基本意思为“改善,提高”,可指健康状况、环境、形势等,也可指具体事物,还可间或指人。强调部分地或某种程度上对客体加以修补改正,以提高到较高水平或使其更受欢迎。本词不用于坏的事物变好,也不用于变得十分完美,无以复加。
  2. improve用作及物动词时可接名词或代词作宾语,但不用于被动结构; 用作不及物动词时主动形式常含有被动意义。
  3. improve后常接反身代词表示“在知识或学问上有进步”,其后常接介词in。
  4. improve常和表示程度的副词连用。

词义辨析

v.(动词)
improve in, improve on〔upon〕
1.前者表示“本身在…方面有改进”,后者主要指“对…加以改进”。
2.improve on多接实物名词; 而improve in多接名词或动名词。
3.improve in多用进行时或完成时态,而improve on多用一般时态。
improve, improve on〔upon〕
improve和improve on都可接宾语,意思是“使…有长进或提高”。improve指在原有的基础上加以改进。而improve on则用于另一事物,即创造新的,比原来更好的事物。试比较:
  • I can improve this poem.
  • 我可以把这首诗改得更好。
  • I can improve on this poem.
  • 我可以再写一首超过这首的另一首诗。
  • I can improve upon her poem.
  • 我能作一首比她好的诗。(用于另一事物)
improve, better
improve与better意思相近,都指在原有基础上改进得更好。其区别是:
1.在提高的速度和水平上, improve比better更快更高。
2.better比improve更有生气和亲切感。
3.better和improve都可接反身代词再接介词in,前者指某人的社会经济地位向好的方面发展,后者指本身向更好的方面变化。例如:
He has bettered himself in living condition.他的生活条件已大有改善。
I wish to improve myself in drawing.但愿我在绘画方面有所长进。
improve better perfect refine
这些动词均有“改进、改善”之意。
  • improve:improve最常用词,多指状态或性质上的深刻或重要改进,也可指自身能力的提高。
  • better:better多用于口语,指适当地改善原来并非很差的状态或性质,也指社会地位、经济状况的改善。
  • perfect:perfect语义强,通常指使方法、技术等达到完善美好的境地。
  • refine:refine侧重指使语言、仪态等变得文雅、优美,也可指技艺等的提高。

常见错误

v.(动词)
  1. 我提不出比这更好的建议。

    I am unable to improve the suggestion.

    I am unable to improve on the suggestion.

    improve用作及物动词,表示“改善或改进”。如表示“作出比…更好的东西”,应该说 improve on〔upon〕…,此时, improve是不及物动词。

  2. 我们希望改进我们的工作。

    We wish to improve our work better.

    We wish to improve our work.

    improve的意思是“改进,使更好(make better)”,已包含better之义,再加上个better,即属赘余。

错句举例与错句分析
  • 错句:do you think the situation is improved?

    纠正:do you think the situation is improving?

    翻译:你认为这个形势得到改善了吗?

    分析:句中的形势改善应是一种主动语态,这不可用improved。

  • 错句:some girls marry merely to improve themselves, to borrow a vulgar phrase.

    纠正:some girls marry merely to better themselves, to borrow a vulgar phrase.

    翻译:粗俗点说,有些女孩子仅仅是为了改善自己的生活条件才结婚。

    分析:生活条件上的改善当用better,improve是内在或抽象事物的改善。

词源解说

  • ☆ 15世纪晚期入进英语,直接源自盎格鲁法语的emprouwer,意为使获利,使受益。
