  • Point the gun at the target.用枪对准靶子。

  • 这组词的共同意思是“对准”“瞄准”,它们之间的区别是:
  • 1.瞄准方法不同:aim指端起枪瞄准; train指把枪放在对准其目标的位置上; level指把枪放在水平位置上瞄准; point则指以某物的一端或尖端对准某一点。例如:

  • The second sentry leveled his halberd at the parson's breast.第二个警卫把他的戟对准了牧师的胸口。
  • He pointed his finger at me.他用手指着我。
  • 2.搭配范围不同:aim和train可以表示以镜头对准; 而level和point不能这样用。例如可以说He trained the camera upon the children.它把相机对准孩子们。
  • 3.连用的介词不同:aim与at, for连用; train与on〔upon〕连用; level与at, against 连用; 而point则与at, to连用。
  • 4.使用场合不同:aim for多见于较正式的文体中。

      If it is the case, there is no point in arguing further with him.

      If it is the case, there is no point arguing further with him.

      there's no point后不能接动词不定式,只能接(in) v -ing结构。

      In order to finish the work, we must do two points.

      时针指向一点半。

      The hands of the clock pointed at half past one.

      当时他正把枪对准我。

      He was pointing the gun to me.

      He was pointing the gun at me.

      他把枪放在洞里,枪口朝外。

      He placed his gun in the hole, pointed outward.

      He placed his gun in the hole, pointing outward.

      “枪口朝外”构成句子的伴随状语,需用现在分词。
