1.middle指距离两端或两边相等距离的中央或中间部分,也可指一段时间或行动始末的中间一段; midst指空间、时间、事物、人群等的中间; core指果实的果心; centre指空间的方、圆等位于中心的位置。例如:

这些名词均含有“中心”之意。
  • center:center指三维空间的中心点,也可比喻抽象事物的中心。
  • middle:middle一般指时间、空间或过程两端间等距的部分。
  • heart:heart指事物最内部或最重要的部分,表地理位置时可与center换用。

  2. 这个城镇的历史可回溯到中世纪。

    The history of the town dates back to the Middle Age.
