lay的详细讲解:

词语用法

v.(动词)
  1. 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。
  2. lay作“产卵”解时,可用作及物动词,也可省去宾语(通常为eggs)而用作不及物动词。
  3. lay作“押,赌”解时通常接双宾语,其间接宾语可以是人,也可以是赌的“标的”,直接宾语则多为that引起的从句。
  4. lay也可用作系动词,接形容词或过去分词作表语。

词义辨析

v.(动词)
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。
lay, lie
lie的过去式与lay的现在式同形,故极易混淆,其实这两个词区别很大。lay是及物动词,意为“把…置于”,而lie是不及物动词,意为“躺着,平放,位于”。前者表动作,后者表状态。试比较以下两个句子:
  • He laid his dictionary on the shelf.
  • 他把词典放在书架上。
  • The dictionary is lying on the shelf.
  • 那本词典放在书架上。
lay place put set
这些动词均有“放”之意。
  • lay:lay指小心地把人或物平放或横放,侧重动作安稳。
  • place:place较正式用词,指把某物放在一个正确的位置上,侧重动作的正确。
  • put:put普通用词,含义较广泛。指把人或物置于某处,并将其留在该处。
  • set:set普通用词,指为了某种目的而将人或物放在一定位置上。指物时多指立着放。

常见错误

v.(动词)
  1. 一个职员把一张纸放在书桌上。

    A clerk laid a slip of paper.

    A clerk laid a slip of paper on the desk.

    lay作“放”解时,后面往往要跟一个表示地点的介词短语,否则意思不完整。

  2. 他喝醉了躺在大街上。

    He was drunk and laid in the street.

    He was drunk and lay in the street.

    laid是lay(放置)的过去式和过去分词,而表示“躺”,应该说lie,它的过去式和过去分词分别是lay和lain。

  3. 玩具散放在地板各处。

    The toys were laying about on the floor.

    The toys were lying about on the floor.

    lay是及物动词,表示“把…放(在某处)”。lie是不及物动词,表示“躺在(某处)”。应注意区别。
