reply的详细讲解:

词语用法

  1. reply指“回答”时,是及物动词。

    He did not know what to reply.
    他不知应该回答什么。

  2. reply指“答复”时,是不及物动词,如有宾语应加介词to,宾语应该是答复的具体对象。

    He did not know how to reply to my question.
    他对我的问题不知应如何作答。

  3. reply后不可接人和that从句;
  4. answer与reply有区别:answer是及物动词,可以直接跟宾语,也可以用answer to的结构,前者更常用。而reply作“答复”解时,是不及物动词,必须用to。answer有具体回答问题的意思,而reply仅仅是回复。

    He replied to her letter, but he did not answer her questions.
    他回复了她的信,但是没有回答她的问题。

v.(动词)
  1. reply的基本意思是“回答”“答复”“作答”,主要指用语言文字对问题、指控、辩论、质问、起诉或致意等给予回答,也可指用行动回答,是较为正式的书面用语。
  2. reply可用作及物动词,也可用作不及物动词。用作不及物动词时常与介词to或for连用; 用作及物动词时接that引导的宾语从句,有时也可引出直接引语。
n.(名词)
  1. reply用作名词的意思是“回答,答复”,引申可指“答案”。
  2. reply常与介词to连用。

词义辨析

v.(动词)
reply, answer, respond
这两个词的共同意思是“回答,答复”,都可用作名词或动词。其区别在于:
1.answer主要指用语言文字回答问题、指责或争论,也可能是以行动满足要求或应付情况; reply则主要指用语言文字给予回答,进行解释等,也可指用行动回答。
2.answer作为名词时,其后常接介词to; reply作为名词时,其后往往接介词to或者for。例如:
The Western answer to this move was the use of plane to supply food.西方对这一建议的答复是用飞机提供食品。
They gave her a reply for her claim.他们对她的要求做了答复。
3.answer是普通用语,用得比较广泛; reply则较为正式。
n.(名词)
reply, answer
这两个词的共同意思是“回答,答复”,都可用作名词或动词。其区别在于:

They gave her a reply for her claim.他们对她的要求做了答复。
3.answer是普通用语,用得比较广泛; reply则较为正式。
answer reply respond retort return
这些动词均有“回答”之意。
  • answer:answer常用词,指用书面、口头或行动对他人的请求、询问、质问等作出回答或反应。
  • reply:reply较正式用词,较少用于口语。侧重经过考虑的较正式答复。
  • respond:respond正式用词,指即刻的,以口头或行动对外来的号召、请求或刺激等作出回答或响应。
  • retort:retort指对不同意见、批评或控诉作出迅速、有力的回答,即“反驳”。
  • return:return正式用词,从本义“归来,回去”引申作“回答、答辨”讲时,含反驳或反唇相讥之意。

常见错误

v.(动词)
  1. 请尽早给我答复。

    Please reply me as early as possible.

    Please reply to me as early as possible.

  2. 他们认为这封信不值得回复。

    They don't think the letter worth replying.

    They don't think the letter worth replying to.

    reply用作及物动词时,只接that从句作宾语,而不可直接接sb/sth 作宾语,须说reply to sb/sth。

  3. 一周前我给他写了回信。

    I have replied to his letter for a week.

    I replied to his letter a week ago.

    It is a week since I replied to his letter.

    reply是瞬间动词,不可与表示一段时间的状语连用。

词源解说

  • ☆ 1385年进入英语,直接源自古法语的replier,意为回答,响应;最初源自拉丁语的replacire:re (回,反复) + placire (折叠),意为再次折好。
