词义辨析

v. (动词)
modify, alter, become, change, convert, turn, vary
  • 这组词的共同意思是“改变”“变化”。change和alter有时可以互换。例如:
  • Whatever we do, we can't change〔alter〕 the facts.不管我们做什么,我们总不能改变事实。
  • He has changed〔altered〕 a lot since I last saw him.自从上次见面到现在,他变了很多。
  • The weather changes〔alters〕 almost daily.天气差不多天天在变。
  • 其区别是:
  • 1.change在这几个词中是最普遍、最不正式的一个,可用于任何变化的过程,而不论变化的性质和程度; alter指局部的、表面的、轻微的“改变”“改动”,修改后仍基本上保持原状; alter和convert都指形式和用途上的局部微小改变; turn指彻底改变,以至面目全非,且常用于朝坏的方向改变; modify指限定在一定范围内的修改或修饰,以使之更完美; vary则指事物或其一部分暂时地或反复地变化,从而使事物各部分呈现不同外貌和特点。例如:
  • When matter changes to a substance different from what it was, the change is a chemical change.当物质变成和原来不同的物质时,这种变化是化学变化。
  • The plan is O.K. at large, but I suggest it be altered.该计划总的来说是可以的,但我建议做进一步修改。
  • Pressure varies directly with temperature and inversely with volume.压力随温度成正比例变化,与容积成反比例变化。

  • The newspaper turned against the president.该报转而攻击总统。
  • After he left the university, he became a teacher, but he later turned to translation.他大学毕业后当了教师,但后来转向翻译工作。
  • 2.convert可指改变信仰,尤其是宗教信仰; modify指态度变温和。例如:
  • He has converted from Buddhism to Catholicism.他已放弃佛教改信天主教了。
  • You'd better modify your tone.你最好缓和一下你的口气。
  • He will have to modify his views if he wants to be elected.他如果想当选,就得把观点变得明朗些。
