- lack的基本意思是“缺少”“缺乏”,指某物完全没有或有而不足,所缺之物可好可坏。lack也可用于抽象事物,指缺少某种品质或某物缺少某种性质、特点。如character, training, imagination, tact, individuality, evidence, money, strength, courage, interest, humour 等。
- lack, be deficient in, want
这组词(组)均可表示“缺乏”。其区别在于：1.lack指完全没有或有而不足,所缺之物可好可坏,在用法上, lack 后面不能接动名词。2.want指缺乏值得有、希望有或为了完整性而必需的东西,在用法上want也可以跟动名词作宾语,而且用主动形式表示被动的意义。例如:She is wanting in common sense.她缺乏常识。You shall never want while I have any money left.只要我有余钱,就不会叫你缺少什么。3.be deficient in则是具体或明确地指出、说明在某方面缺少或不足。例如:This food is deficient in iron.这种食物缺乏铁。Nothing was deficient in this project.这项工程什么都不缺。
- lack, fall short of
这两者意思并不相同：lack的意思是“缺乏”;而fall short of的意思是“没有达到”。例如:He has the ability to work well, but he lacks confidence.他有能力把工作做好,但他缺乏信心。The movie fell short of expectation. 影片没有人们想象中的好。The salary increases fell short of what they expected. 工资增加没有他们期待的那样多。
- lack for, want for
这两个短语都可表示“缺乏必要的或想要的东西”,意义相近,常可互换,只是前者表示“客观缺乏什么”,而后者则进一步表明“主观上想要”,且lack for的意味比want for的意味弱。例如:As he is very rich he lacks for nothing.他很富有,什么也不缺。We should not want for food.我们不会缺少食物。
- lack, absence, shortage, want
这组词都有“缺乏”的意思。其区别是：1.从内容上说:absence指在某一特定的场合应具备或想要的某一事物或事实; lack指应具备或需要的东西; shortage指按规定应具备或需要的数量; want则指缺少必不可少的东西,尤指为一整体的完美所必须具备的东西。2.从程度上说:absence指根本就不存在; lack指完全没有或不够充足; shortage指部分短缺或开始减少; want则指缺少。3.从用法上说:absence, lack和want都是不可数名词,间或可加不定冠词; 而shortage可用作不可数名词,也可用作可数名词。
