词义辨析

n.(名词)
quarter, district, section, tract
这组词都有“地区”“区域”的意思。其区别是:
district通常指行政上的区域,又指具有显著特色的地方; section指一个国家或城市自然形成的地区; quarter一般指一个城市中的具有同一性的地区,尤指特殊一层人所居住的区域; tract指大片的土地、地域、地带或住房开发区。例如:
The city has a busy Chinese quarter.这个城市有个热闹的华人区。
The famous man's mail came from the corners of the globe.那位名人的信件来自世界各地。
Large tracts of sandy land were reclaimed.大片大片的沙质荒地被开垦出来了。
There is a vast tract of forest in that area.在那个地区有一大片森林。
下面四句表达的意思相同:
  • I bought it for a quarter of the price.
  • I bought it for quarter of the price.
  • I bought it for a quarter the price.
  • I bought it for quarter the price.
  • 我是以1/4的价格买的。
v.(动词)
quarter on, quarter with
这两个短语有时都可译为“同…一起住”。其区别是:
quarter on指“住到(某人)那里”, on的宾语是原本就住在那里的; 而with的宾语原本并不住在那里,而是与主语一同住到那里去的。
district region area section zone belt quarter neighbourhood
这些名词均有“地区”之意。
  • district:district多指由政府等机构出于行政管理等目的而明确划分的地区。
  • region:region常指地球上、大气中具有自然分界线的区域,特指按照气候、人体或其他特征鲜明、自成一体的地区。
  • area:area普通用词,指整体中较大的,界线不分明的一部分。
  • section:section指城市、国家或天然界线形成的地区。

  • belt:belt从本义“带,带状物”引申而指任何广阔的长条地带,也可指种植某种作物的地区。
  • quarter:quarter指城市里具有相同性质或独特风味的地区,比section范围小,但划分更精确。
  • neighbourhood:neighbourhood指比section的划定更清楚,范围更小。具体指城市中的住宅区,也可指附近一带。

常见错误

n.(名词)
  1. 我们必须在黄昏前找到住处。

    We must find a quarter before nightfall.

    We must find quarters before nightfall.

    quarter作“住处”“宿舍”解时要用复数形式。

  2. 他们等了一刻钟,但是没看见一辆公共汽车。

    They waited for a quarter, but no bus came in sight.

    They waited for a quarter of an hour, but no bus came in sight.

    当quarter表示时间“一刻”,不能只说a quarter,须接介词of,应该说a quarter of an hour。

  3. 这个方案遭到了各方面的批评。

    The scheme met with criticisms from all quarter.

    The scheme met with criticisms from all quarters.

    quarter作“方面”解时是可数名词,表示“各方面”应说all quarters。

  4. 他不愿饶恕他的敌人。

    He refused to give quarters to his foe.

    He refused to give quarter to his foe.

    quarter作“宽恕、饶恕”解是不可数名词,没有复数形式。

词源解说

  • ☆ 1300年左右进入英语,直接源自古法语的quartier;最初源自古典拉丁语的quartarius,意为第部四分。
