- lay的基本意思是“放置成水平位置”。可译为“放,搁,摆”“压倒,放倒”“铺设,敷设”等,引申可指“安排”“布置”“拟定”“提出”等。用作及物动词时,可接名词或代词作宾语,也可接“(to be+) adj./v -ed”充当补足语的复合宾语。
- lay, place, put, set
这组词的共同意思是“放置”。其区别是：lay强调把某物放置或使某物处于水平位置;而set指使某物处于直立的位置;put强调把某物移进或移出某处或某位置,或使处于某种地位、情况或关系的动作;place则不强调动作,而强调某一确定的地点或情况。例如:You placed me in a difficult position.你使我陷入了窘境。I put the suitcase on the table.我把手提箱搁在桌上。They were setting the table for dinner.他们正在摆餐具准备开饭。
- lay, deposit
这两个词的共同意思是“放”“放置”。其区别是：1.lay是指将某物平放、横放或摊开放;deposit含有安全保管的意味,并不强调以何种方式放。例如:He laid mats on the floor.他把席子摊开放在地板上。You can deposit your valuables in the hotel safe.你可以把贵重物品存放到旅馆的保险柜里。2.lay和deposit的对象都可以指一般的东西,此时可互换。此外, deposit还可以指金钱、财物等贵重的或有某种价值的东西。例如:He laid〔deposited〕 the books on the desk.他把书放在办公桌上了。He's deposited quite a lot of money recently.他最近存入了不小的一笔钱。3.deposit是正式用语;lay是一般用语。
