And then to hear a dead man chatter Is enough to drive one mad.出自： Tennyson
- mad 作“狂热的”“着迷的”解时其后可接介词about, on或for; 作“发怒的”解时表示对某人发怒接at或with,表示发怒的原因则常接at或for。
- mad, angry, annoyed
- 这组词的差别主要在程度上：annoyed语气较弱,只是烦恼,不见得气愤; 而mad表示的感情则比angry更强烈。例如:
- He was annoyed to learn that the train would be delayed.他听说火车要误点,心里很烦恼。
- She seemed to be very mad at him.她似乎对他非常恼火。
- 另外, mad主要与at, about连用,而较少与with连用。
- She is mad to speak to the stranger.
误 The death of her children has driven her to be mad.
正 The death of her children has driven her mad.你讲这话真叫我恼火。
误 You drive me to be mad when you say that.
正 You drive me mad when you say that.
析 “使…受不了,要发疯”英语中用 drive sb mad 来表示, mad前不加to be。
- ☆ 直接源自中古英语的madd，意为精神失常。
