seek的详细讲解:

词语用法

v.(动词)
  1. seek的基本意思是“寻找”“寻求”“谋求”“设法得到”,指怀有很大希望,付出很大努力去寻求某人或某物,也可指对崇高目的或抽象事物的追求、向往或探索。偶尔表示不费吹灰之力的调查。seek还可作“试图”解。
  2. seek用作及物动词时,接名词、代词或动词不定式作宾语。用作不及物动词时,其主动形式含有被动意义。
  3. seek用于be to结构时,尽管主语是seek的逻辑宾语,句子也要用主动结构。
  4. seek是书面语,较少用于口语。
  5. seek作“企图”“试图”解时,多用于书面语中,在日常谈话中通常不用,否则显得矫饰,在口语中通常用try to get sth或try to find sth来代替。

词义辨析

v.(动词)
seek, seek for
这两个词(组)的区别是:当表示“寻找”时, seek for含有“更加坚持达到目标的意味”。
seek for, seek out
这两个短语的意思都是“寻找”。其区别是:
seek for强调找的动作; seek out强调找出的结果。例如:
Eby is seeking for his pencil in the drawer.伊比正在抽屉里找他的铅笔。
They sought him out among the crowd.他们在人群中找到了他。
seek after, seek for
这两个短语都是“寻求,探求”的意思,常可通用。例如:
Who are you seeking for〔after〕?你在找谁?
其区别是:
seek after比seek for语气更强,且更多用于表示“追求”“探索”等义, seek for则更多用于“寻找具体物品”。例如:
We are earnestly seeking after the truth.我们热切地追求真理。
He determined to seek for building more suited to their needs.他决心另找一座更适合他们需要的房子。
seek, explore, hunt, search
这四个词都有“寻找”“搜索”的意思。其区别在于:第一, hunt和search都是指搜寻具体的人或某一具体事物,而seek则指对崇高目的或抽象事物的追求或向往; explore指对未知事物或新生事物的探索、观察与研究。第二, hunt含有急切的意味,也常指无结果地寻找,而另外三词没有此种意味。例如:
A police patrol was organized to search for him.警察巡逻队被组织起来去寻找他。
We must explore all the possibilities.我们必须探讨所有的可能性。
We are earnestly seeking after the truth.我们在认真地寻找真理。
I've hunted high and low for my socks.我到处在找我的短袜。
search seek comb
这些动词均含有“寻找”之意。
  • search:search侧重努力和彻底搜寻某人或某地。
  • seek:seek书面用词,使用广。指付出很大努力去寻找某人或某物。
  • comb:comb指像梳头一样进行搜寻,侧重费力和彻底搜查。

常见错误

v.(动词)
  1. 他寻求与敌方讲和。

    He seeks making peace.

    He seeks to make peace.

    seek作“试图”“设法”解时,后面可以接动词不定式,但不可接动名词作宾语。

词源解说

  • ☆ 直接源自古英语的secan,意为拜访,打听;最初源自原始日耳曼语的sokjaann。
