这组词都有“火”“火光”的意思。1.blaze指大火; flame既可表示孤立的小火,也可表示“火舌,火苗,火焰”; light为一般用语,泛指日、月、星、火、灯的光。2.blaze可给人带来温暖,但如控制不住可造成火灾; flame和light强调光明、光线, flame也可造成火灾。3.blaze多用单数形式; flame表示“火舌,火苗,火焰”时常用复数形式; light为不可数名词。
- light, bright
- light, fire, ignite, inflame, kindle
这组词的意思都与“燃烧”有关。其区别是：1.fire多用于口语中,表示迅速燃烧起来,并产生通红的颜色; light是普通用语,指发光或发热; kindle指需较长时间或事先要做一定准备方能点燃。例如:Someone fired the building.有人放火烧了那栋楼房。She lighted the candles.她把蜡烛点燃。The spark kindled the dry wood.火星燃着干柴。2.ignite多用于科技方面,指来势凶猛的燃烧,或与易燃物接触后所引起的燃烧; inflame则多用于文学作品中,指激起强烈的感情。例如:Spontaneous combustion ignited the heap of oil-soaked rags in the basement.自燃使得地下室渍油的破布堆燃烧起来了。Her question seemed to inflame him all the more.她的问题似乎使他更加恼火了。
- light, set fire
这两个词(组)都可表示“点燃”。其区别是：set fire可表示意外或故意烧着了或点燃了某东西,如房子、衣服等; 而light表示点燃香烟、炉灶、蜡烛等。例如:He lit a cigarette.他点燃了一支香烟。Who set fire to the house?是谁纵火烧这房子的?

- His face has a shine with perspiration.
- The baby was all in a glow after a hot bath.
- light, enlighten, illuminate, illumine, illustrate, lighten
这组词的共同意思是“照亮”。它们之间的区别是:illuminate指用光线照亮黑暗处,引申可指启发、阐明复杂或难懂的问题; illumine与illuminate同义,多为文学和诗歌用语; light多指照亮道路或某一处所; lighten也指使黑暗处明亮一些,常引申作诗歌用语; enlighten原指照耀,现只用于引申义指启发、开导或使人摆脱偏见、迷信等; illustrate指增加光泽,引申指美化或润色。
