settle的详细讲解:

词语用法

v. (动词)
  1. settle的基本意思是“安”。可指“安放”“安置”“安家”,即使某人〔事〕处于稳定、有序、长期的位置或某个稳定、清闲的环境中; 也可指“安定”“安抚”“安静”,即长期压在心头的烦恼或起伏不定的事物得到安定; 还可指“安排”“解决”,即终止所有的怀疑、动摇和争论而使事情得到解决。根据上文可灵活译成“妥善安置”。引申可指“安排,使妥帖”“决定,解决”“使平静,使镇定”“调停,排解”“设定,安牢”“使就职”“使坐下”“使守规矩,使就范”“使坚固,使坚实”“使澄清,使沉淀”“支付,清算”“(法律)让渡,和解”“(动物学)受孕,怀胎”。
  2. settle既可用作及物动词,也可用作不及物动词。用作及物动词时,可接名词、代词、带或不带疑问词的动词不定式或that/wh-从句作宾语。
  3. settle可用于被动结构。

词义辨析

v. (动词)
settle for, settle on, settle up
  • 这组短语的意思并不相同:settle for的意思是“(勉强)同意接受”“清理(债务等)”; settle on的意思是“决定”“给(钱、遗产等)”; settle up的意思是“付账”。
  • settle, decide, determine, fix, make up one's mind, resolve
  • 这组词(组)都有“决定”的意思。其区别在于:
  • 1.decide是普通用词,指经过讨论、思考消除分歧而对是非、优劣、取舍等问题“作出决定”; resolve强调信念的目的性; 而settle则强调最后的“决定”。例如:
  • From that moment she resolved to trace the unknown element.从那时起,她决心找出这种未知的元素。
  • He resolved that nothing should hold back.他决心不为任何阻碍所挫。
  • The heavy rain might settle the changeable weather.这场大雨也许能使变幻不定的天气稳定下来。
  • 2.determine强调“意志坚定”“不可动摇”,也常用于科技方面通过调查或认真思考后作出“决定”或“确定”。例如:
  • His advice determined me against further delay.他的劝告使我决定不再拖延。
  • He is determined to break away all the bad habits.他决心改掉所有坏习惯。
  • An X-ray determined that no bones were broken.经X光测定,没有发生骨折。
  • 3.fix指经过考虑和商议后作出决定,强调不再改变。例如:
  • Once the aim is fixed, we should not change it arbitrarily.目标一经确定,我们就不要随意改变。
  • 4.make up one's mind指下决心做某事,不再改变。例如:
  • Have you made up your mind about it?关于这件事,你拿定主意了没有?
  • They have made up their minds to set off tomorrow afternoon.他们决定明天下午动身。
  • settle, establish, fasten, fix
  • 这四个词的共同含义是“使稳定”“使固定”。其区别是:
  • 1.fix强调使稳固于、固定于某一位置、地方或情况中,且难以改变或移动。
  • 2.establish强调使稳固而持久地建立起。例如:
  • Every possibility has been exploited to establish a number of schools.利用一切可能性建立了许多学校。
  • The company has established a new system for dealing with complaints.这家公司建立了处理意见的新制度。
  • 3.settle则指“将…置于稳固的、有秩序的或永远的地方或情况中”。例如:
  • We have settled what we'll discuss at the next meeting.我们已决定下次会议讨论什么内容。
  • Their grandparents settled the land in 1856.他们的祖辈于1856年在这块土地上定居下来。
  • 4.fasten只说明“系”“(使其)固定”这一动作,不强调动作的结果。也可指因出于好奇或向某人征求意见而目不转睛地看。例如:
  • Please fasten the seatbelt when the plane is about to take off.飞机起飞时请系好安全带。
  • The stranger fastened on my arm.那个陌生人紧紧抓住我的胳膊。
  • His eyes fastened upon the beautiful lady.他的眼睛盯住那位美丽的妇人。
  • settle, calm, quieten
  • 这三个词都有“(使)镇定”的意思。它们之间的差别是:
  • 1.calm强调了先前混乱的状态,然后靠判断力、意志或信仰而恢复正常。
  • 2.settle指采取某种措施、安排而平息了激动或兴奋,使思想和身体处于一种轻松状态。例如:
  • A vacation will settle your nerves.休假可镇定你的神经。
  • A word from his father was enough to settle him.他父亲的一句话就足以使他安静下来。
  • The music will settle my disordered brain.音乐会使我纷乱的心情得到安定。

  • Her soft words settled his agitated mind.她的温柔的话语使他焦虑的思绪平静下来。
  • I'll read a bit before supper to settle my mind.我在晚餐之前读读书使心情平静。
  • 3.quieten强调言谈举止方面外在的暂时平静。例如:
  • The children were shouting, but they soon quietened down.孩子们大叫大嚷着,但一会儿就安静了下来。
  • settle, solve
  • 这两个词的共同意思是“解决问题〔纷争〕”。当宾语是argument, dispute, affair, matter等名词时多使用settle; 当宾语是equation, problem, puzzle等名词时,多使用solve。
  • 下面4句话的意思相同:
  • He hopes to settle in the country.
  • He hopes to be settled in the country.
  • He hopes to settle down in the country.
  • He hopes to be settled down in the country.
  • 他希望在农村安家落户。

  • 他父亲一句话就足以使他安静下来。
  • A word from his father was enough to settle with him.
  • 他父亲一句话就足以使他们和解。
  • 常见错误

    v. (动词)
      双方最后解决了这个问题。

      Both sides settled the problem at last.

      Both sides solved the problem at last.

      表示“解决问题”,通常要说solve a problem,其中 solve 不能改用settle。 settle的宾语通常可以是 dispute(争执), affair(事务), matter(事情), argument(争论), quarrel(争吵)等。

      她安稳地坐下来看书。

      She settled down reading her book.

      She settled down to read her book.

      表示“安稳地坐下来做某事”可用settle down to- v 的结构。 settle down后面跟动词不定式,不跟动词的现在分词形式。

      我们安下心来讨论英语俚语的用法。

      We settled down for a quiet discussion of English slang.

      We settled down to a quiet discussion of English slang.

      表示“安下心来做某事”时settle down后可接动词不定式,还可接由介词to引起的短语。to不可换为for。
