- maybe, perhaps, possibly, probably
这四个词都有“可能,或许”的意思。其区别是：1.probably指“多半”,其可能性超过一半; perhaps和maybe指“或许”,其可能性大致为一半; possibly仅指“也许”“有可能”,其可能性低于一半。例如:Probably he will succeed.他很可能会成功。Perhaps〔maybe〕 he will succeed.他也许会成功。He will possibly succeed.他有可能成功。2.maybe比perhaps更口语化,且要用于句首; perhaps可用于句末、句中、句首; probably多用于句中。3.maybe和possibly可用于礼貌的建议或请求,另三个词无此义。例如:Maybe you could move the chair.也许你可以挪动一下那张椅子。Could you possibly lend me 1000 yuan ?你能借给我1000元钱吗?
- maybe:maybe adv. 大概, 或许n. 疑虑…
