词义辨析

adj.(形容词)
quiet, calm, peaceful, silent, still
这组形容词的共同意思是“安静”“平静”“寂静”。其区别在于:
1.在修饰环境时各词所指的状态为:calm指风平浪静; peaceful指没有战争或骚乱; quiet指没有吵闹干扰; still指完全没有声音。例如:
The sea was calm yesterday.昨天海水是平静的。
Countries should settle their disputes by peaceful means.各国应通过和平手段解决他们的争端。
Differences among them could have been reconciled by them through peaceful consultations.他们中间的分歧本来可以由他们和平协商调解。

n.(名词)
at quiet, in quiet, on the quiet
这三个短语意思并不相同:at quiet的意思是“安定地”; in quiet的意思是“安静地”; 而on the quiet的意思是“秘密地”。
quiet, quietness, quietude
这三个词都可作“寂静,平静,清静”解。其区别在于:quiet表示事物的状态或气氛; quietness指人或物所展示出来的一种品质; quietude则表示人的习惯。例如:
After a busy week in London, he looked forward to the peace and quiet of his country home.在伦敦忙碌了一周之后,他渴望乡下家里宁静的生活氛围。
We were surprised at the quietness of his manner and gentleness of speech.我们为他那文静的举止和亲切的话语而感到惊讶。

  • quiet:quiet普通用词,指没有喧闹、活动或骚乱的寂静状态。
  • calm:calm普通用词,既可指天气、海洋等的平静状态,又可指人的镇定沉着、不慌乱,不受外界影响和情绪支配。
  • silent:silent普通用词,指缄默不语或无声无息。
  • still:still指平静而又安定的状态。

常见错误

adj.(形容词)
  1. 请坐在座位上,不要出声。

    Please sit quiet in your seats.

  2. 这位老人不喜欢静静地坐着。

    The old man doesn't like to sit quietly.

    The old man doesn't like to sit quiet.

    sit在这里表示状态,起系动词的作用,后面应该用形容词quiet作表语,不用副词quietly。

  3. 他住在一条安静的街上。

    He lives in a silent street.

    He lives in a quiet street.

    silent主要指“不出声”“缄默的”, quiet主要指“没有吵闹和骚乱”的一种安静状态。

  4. 她上学时是一个文静的姑娘。

    She was a quite girl in school.

    She was a quiet girl in school.

    quite与quiet形似义不同,前者作副词,意思是“完全,十分,相当”,后者作形容词,意思是“文静的”。
