Take my hand and raise me.出自： E. W. Lane
- raise只用作及物动词,接名词、代词作宾语,偶尔也接以“to be+ n./adj. ”充当补足语的复合宾语。
- raise在美式英语中有“饲养，抚养”的意思，如 raise cattle（饲养牲口）和raise children（抚养孩子）。相对应的英式英语则是breed cattle和rear children；
- raise在美式英语中还有“增加”的意思，通常指工资等的上升，如a raise in/of salary。英式英语中习惯用rise或increase去替换该词；
- raise, rise
- 1.raise是及物动词,其主语通常是人; 而rise是不及物动词,其主语通常是物。例如:
- I feel I must raise my voice against suggested changes in the law.我认为我必须对该法律所提出的修改条款提出反对。
- The sun rises and bathes the earth.太阳升起,普照大地。

析 raise和rise都可表示“由低向上升高的动作或趋势”,但raise是及物动词,在主动句中其后必须有宾语; rise是不及物动词,后面不直接跟宾语。1949年10月1日,人们第一次看到五星红旗在天安门广场升起。
误 October 1,1949 saw the rising of the five-star red flag for the first time on Tian An Men Square.
正 October 1,1949 saw the raising of the five-star red flag for the first time on Tian An Men Square.
析 国旗是被升起的,不是自动上升的。因此, rising尽管形式不错,但意义不准确,应该用raising。他努力学习提高自己的英语水平。
误 He studies hard to raise his English level.
正 He studies hard to improve his English.
析 raise his English level是逐字直译的汉式英语,“提高英语水平”可用 improve one's English表达。
