life的详细讲解:

词语用法

n.(名词)
  1. life的基本意思是指使人或其他生物的活动、成长,从而有别于死的物体、岩石或其他无机物体的“生命”,也可指一切有生命的东西,即“生物”。life也可指“人生,人的存在”或人在一生中的经历,即“生活”。life还可指“人命,性命”。引申可指“一生,终身”“生命力,活力”“生活方式”。
  2. life泛指“生命”时是不可数名词;泛指“性命”时是可数名词;泛指“生活”时是不可数名词,其前不加冠词,但指某种有比较具体内容的“生活”“生活方式”时则是可数名词。
  3. for life的意思是“一辈子,一生”,当所指的人为复数时,也可以用复数形式for lives。
  4. for one's life的意思是“拼命地”;for the life of one的意思是“无论如何”,只能用于否定结构。

词义辨析

n.(名词)
life, living
这两个词的共同意思是“生活”。其区别是:
life指“生涯”,不指赚钱谋生;而living指“生计”,含有赚钱谋生之意。例如:
My life is really dreadful.我的生活真是糟透了。
He works for his living as a teacher.他靠教书为生。

常见错误

n.(名词)
  1. 在这场森林大火中有100多人丧生了。

    Over a hundred people lost their life in the big forest fire.

    Over a hundred people lost their lives in the big forest fire.

    life作“生命”解时是可数名词。

  2. 在伦敦,生活费用很高。

    In London the cost of life is very high.

    In London the cost of living is very high.

    the cost of life的意思是“生命的代价”;表示“生活费用”可以说the cost of living。
