- common sense指“常识”，与common knowledge和general knowledge不同。common sense指大多数人从经验中得来的常识，不需研究。common knowledge指在某个范围内大家都知道的事，受范围限制，不指所有人。general knowledge和common knowledge有时意思一样，但通常指从研究或注意得来的关于许多事物的基本知识，与 specialized knowledge意义相反；
- common sense只有在作形容词时才写成common-sense；
- sense of humour指“幽默感”，没有幽默感可以说have no sense of humour或lack humour。
- sense的基本意思是“感官”,即人体感受客观事物刺激的器官(眼、耳、鼻、舌、身)或其所具有的功能; 也可表示“感觉”,即客观事物的个别特性在人脑中引起的反应。sense的复数形式可指五种感觉,即视觉、听觉、嗅觉、味觉、触觉。sense引申还可表示对价值的“理解,觉察,感悟,辨别”,常用作单数形式,但前常可加冠词a或the。
- sense用作名词是“感官,感觉”的意思,转化为动词作“隐约感觉到; 意识到; 发觉”解,强调通过直觉而产生,不可与表示清晰感觉的词如冷、暖、快乐等连用。
- 在美国口语中, sense可作“领会”“发觉”“认识”解。
- sense是及物动词,接名词、代词、that从句,或疑问词引导的从句作宾语; 还可接“to be+ n. / adj. ”或现在分词充当宾语补足语的复合宾语。
- in all senses, in every sense
这两个短语都作“在任何意义上”解。其区别是：前者无需搭用of the word,而后者则可以搭用。试比较:
- What the prisoner said was a lie in all senses.
- What the prisoner said was a lie in every sense of the word.
- common sense, common knowledge, general knowledge
这三个短语共同的意思是“常识”。其区别是：common sense和common knowledge两个词共同的是common,即大家同有的,而非一人独有,其区别是common sense意为通过直觉经验而不是通过研究而获得的,而common knowledge则是通过研究而不是仅凭经验而认识。common knowledge和general knowledge共同的是knowledge,即通过研究而获得的认识,其区别是common knowledge强调“大家皆有而非个人独有”,而general knowledge则强调是普通常识,而非专业知识。例如:Every man of common sense will not make such stupid mistake.凡有常识的人都不至于犯如此愚蠢的错误。It is a common knowledge among our teachers that they will soon have a rise in their salaries.我们的老师都知道,他们不久将会提薪。Their office is in great need of a woman clerk with a rich general knowledge.他们的办公室很需要一名知识渊博的女办事员。
- sense, emotion, feeling, passion, sensation
这组词都有“感觉”“感情”“情绪”的意思。其区别是：1.这组词都可指机体受到外界刺激后从身体到精神的反应; sensation常指身体的反应,尤其是感官如眼睛、神经等对外界刺激的反应,一般较轻微,常译为“感知”, feeling较强,一般译为“感觉”“感情”, emotion 更强,表现为喜怒哀乐,一般译为激动; passion最强烈,往往使人失去思维的能力,且使人不能自制。例如:Fire gives a sensation of warmth.火给人以温暖的感觉。I don't like to hurt his feeling.我不愿意伤害他的感情。She lost her reason in consequence of a violent emotion caused by a fire.她因失火而过分伤心,以致失去理智。Our moral sense controls passion.我们的道德观念控制着激情。2.feeling是这组词中最常用的,可泛指一般的情绪; sense多指身体上五官的感觉; sensation还可指轰动一时的事件或人物。例如:He had some feeling for hope.他怀有希望的心情。The new invention has created a great sensation.这项新发明引起了很大的轰动。
- sense, implication, meaning, significance
这组词的共同意思是“含义”。其区别是：meaning意为“意义,意思,重要性”; implication着重指无需说明、解释即可理解的含蓄的、暗示的“意思”。例如:She smiled with the implication that she didn't believe him.她笑了,意思就是不相信他。sense通常指“观念,概念,含义”,也可指“感觉,意识”,在许多情况下, sense与meaning可以替换。例如:Some words have as many as twenty senses〔means〕.有些词有至少20个意思。significance着重指内在的“含义,重要性”。例如:He has quite realized the true significance of her actions.他完全认识到了她的行动的重要性。
- sense, sensibility
这两个词都表示“感觉或知觉的能力或活动”。但侧重点不同:sense主要指用来表示对外来刺激或影响在“感觉”上的反应; sensibility主要指情感或感觉能力。例如:He has a sense of well-being.他有一种幸福感。He has no sensibility to pain.他对痛苦没有感觉。
- sense, feel
- I felt cold.
- I sensed danger.
- judgement discrimination sense
误 They don't have the sense of admitting defeat.
正 They don't have the sense to admit defeat.
析 sense可接动词不定式作定语,不接“of+ v -ing”。
误 There is no sense to do the experiment again.
正 There is no sense in doing the experiment again.
析 there is no sense in v -ing的意思是“做某事没有意思的”,是固定搭配, in v -ing 不可改为不定式。
误 There is some sense to what he says.
正 There is some sense in what he says.
误 There is no sense in it.
正 There is no sense to it.
析 在此类句式中,介词to含有“远离的”的意思, in含有“接近”的意思,因此,当表示“某事没有道理时”,用介词to比in好,反之亦然。
- He's a man of sense.
错句：the deck is high-sided, adding significantly to the interior's sense of space.
纠正：the deck is high-sided, adding significantly to the one's sense of space inside.
