The exception proves the rule.出自：Proverb
- prove既可用作及物动词,也可用作不及物动词。用作及物动词时,可接名词、代词、从句作宾语。prove还可接“to be+ n./adj./prep. -phrase”充当补足语的复合宾语, to be一般可以省略,但当to be是完成式即to have been时不可省略。prove还可用作系动词,意思是“显现出是,被发现是”,其后可接“(to be)+ adj./prep. -phrase”或介词短语作表语。
- prove的过去分词在英国是proved; 但在美国往往用proven, proven常用作形容词,在句中作定语。
That proved him progressive.That proved him to be progressive.That proved that he was progressive.那证明他是进步的。

这组词都有“证明”的意思。其区别是：1.testify是指证明某事的真实性; prove是指证明某人或某物具有的某种品质特性。2.testify指通过某人证明; prove指通过事实证明。3.testify用于法庭或其他正式场合,比较郑重。4.用作及物动词时, testify后可接从句作简单宾语; prove后可接复合宾语。用作不及物动词时, testify后常接against, for〔on〕 behalf of或to等词。
- prove, turn out
