- see after和see into同look after和look into的意思相同，但是没有look的使用普遍。
- “see+量词+of”表示看见某人的频率。see more of sb 是固定习语,意为“较多地见到”, more可换用little, quite a lot, much less, a great deal等表示相应的意义。
- see接现在分词或动词不定式构成复合宾语时,现在分词表示宾语的一个主动、正在执行的动作(多是目前的事情),有时也可表示某动作过程的一部分,还可表示状态; 而动词不定式则侧重一个完整的过程(多是指过去的事情),表示一个事件。see接以动词的过去分词充当补足语的复合宾语时,表状态,含有被动意义。
- see表示“看见”时,为表知觉的动词,通常不用一般现在时态或进行时态,而常常用 can see和 could see来表示“(当时)看到”。作“会见”“送”解时,可用进行体。
- 在see to it that后的从句中常用一般现在时表示将来,强调某一愿望或要求一定要实现,即使在句子中有明确表示将来的时间状语,也用一般现在时,不用将来时。在口语中to it可省略。
- You see?的意思是“明白吗”,常用于句首,是一种无实义的口语。let me see和I will see意为“我考虑考虑”“我想想”。
- see a/the doctor的意思是“看病”,在方言中可译为“看医生”。
- see sb/sth to/ -v, see sb/sth v-ing, see sb/sth v-ed
see可接以动词不定式、现在分词、过去分词充当补足语的复合宾语,但意义上有区别：1.接动词不定式时表示动作的全过程; 接现在分词只表示动作过程的一部分; 而接过去分词则表示已经完成的动作,含有被动意义。例如:I saw her put the key in the lock, turn it and open the door.我看见她把钥匙插进锁眼,转动钥匙,把门打开。I saw the train coming into the station.我看见火车开进站来。He saw the man knocked down by a car.他看到那男子被汽车撞倒了。2.有时动词不定式单纯表示事实,而现在分词则具有描写色彩。试比较：
- We saw the sun rise.
- We saw the sun rising behind the trees.
- see, call, drop in, visit
这组词均有“拜访”之意。它们之间的区别是:1.从语气上说:visit是正式用语; call比较正式; drop in则是日常用语,有“顺便”“不定期”的意味; see一般用于亲友间的访问。例如:The foreign delegation is visiting in Beijing.外国代表团正在北京访问。The Britain Ambassador called on Premier Zhou Enlai yesterday.英国大使昨天拜会了周恩来总理。He sometimes drops in to see me in the evening.他有时晚上来看我。I'll go to see my parents tomorrow.明天我要去看望父母。2.在使用场合上:call和visit都可用于社交和公务,但医生到病人家出诊则要用visit。例如:I visited〔called〕 on the foreign guests yesterday.昨天我走访了外国客人。In China, restaurant and hotel kitchens are visited〔called〕 on regularly by officers of public health.在中国,卫生人员经常检查饭店和旅馆的厨房。The doctor is out.He went to visit an emergency case.医生不在。他有急病号,出诊去了。3.call的时间一般都很短暂,而visit逗留的时间则较长。试比较以下两个句子:
4.visit在英国较少用,一般情况下都用call。如果用了visit,则含有“逗留几天”或“出于公务〔职务〕的要求”的意思。5.社交场合用的“名片”英美说法不同。美国称calling card,英国称visiting card。
- I shall call on you this afternoon.
- When he visited us last year he told us a story every evening.
- 去年他来我们这儿作客时,每晚都给 我们讲一个故事。
- see, look, watch
这三个词都有“看”的意思。其区别是：look指有意识的“动作”;see指有意或无意的“结果”;watch则指有意识地以期待、警觉等心情看上一段时间。例如:We looked but saw nothing.我们看了,可是什么也没看到。They are watching a TV play.他们在看电视剧。
- see, eye
这两个词的共同意思是“看”。它们的区别是：1.see强调看到的结果。2.eye则带有某种感情色彩,如“瞪着眼睛看”等。例如:She eyed him from top to toe.她从头到脚打量他。They eyed each other's newly bought shoes.他们看着彼此新买的鞋。
- see, observe, perceive
这三个词都可表示“察觉”。它们之间的区别是：see是一般用语,指意识到眼前的东西,但不一定有意去注意或加以识别; perceive是正式用语,含有有意识地去注意或识别所见东西的意思; observe则表示有意识地察看。试比较以下三个句子的含义：
- I saw someone standing in the doorway.
- We perceived the figure to be your room- mate.
- We observed a change in her.
- see, appreciate, comprehend, understand
这组词都有“明白”或“理解”的意思。其区别在于：1.see的基本意思可指一般视觉的“看见”,也可指有意识地“观察”,引申可表示由观察而“领会”“理解”。2.comprehend指用智力充分而完全地理解事物的内在含义。例如:The child read the story but didn't comprehend its full meaning.那孩子看了这篇故事,但没有理解它的全部意思。If you can use a word correctly and effectively you comprehend it.如果你能正确、有效地使用一个词,你就是了解它了。3.understand则是明白别人说的话,完全了解某种事实。例如:My wife doesn't understand me.我的妻子不理解我。I've read the letter but I don't understand it.这封信我已经看过了,可是看不懂。4.appreciate指对某物有较深的理解能力,强调“欣赏”。例如:She appreciated a work of art.她欣赏一件艺术品。I am incapable of appreciating classical music.我不会欣赏古典音乐。
