- sight用作名词的基本意思是“视力,视觉”,也可指“看见,瞥见”“视域,眼界”等,是不可数名词。引申可表示“情景,景象”,是可数名词; 还可指“风景,名胜”“(步枪等的)瞄准器,观测器”,常用于复数形式。
- a sight除了可用于表示“一处景象”或“一个瞄准器”之外,在口语中还可指“显得滑稽可笑的、不整洁的人或物”“非常,很多”等。作“非常,很多”解时,其后常接介词of。
- at (first) sight〔on sight〕 的意思是“乍一看,初看起来”; at the sight of的意思是“一见(就)”; catch sight of意思是“发现,突然看见”; lose sight of的意思是“忽视,忘记”“看不见”“失去联系”等; out of sight意思是“看不见,在视野之外”。
- at (first) sight, at (the) first sight of
- 这两个短语意思不同：前者意为“乍一看”,含义是“仅凭表面而未深入探究”, first前没有定冠词the,多位于句末; 后者意为“一见到…(就)”,强调两个动作的连续性, first前常有定冠词the,可置于句末,亦可置于句首。另外, at (the) sight of常可转换为as soon as引导的时间状语从句。例如:
- They fell in love at first sight.
- The little rabbit darted to its mother at the sight of a man.
- catch sight of, catch a sight of
- I caught sight of her hurrying away but I didn't try to speak to her.
- 我看见她匆忙地走开,但我并没有跟 她讲话。
- She caught a sight of me.
- in sight of, in the sight of
- We're in sight of land.
- The teacher told me to do what is right in the sight of me.
- sight, prospect, scene, scenery, view
- 1.prospect指从高处眺望所见到的景色,前景; scene指局部的、一眼可见全貌的风景或景色,不限于自然的风景,也常指(戏剧、电影、小说等的)场景、布景; scenery则指某一国家或某一地区的整体的自然风景; sight指眼见的景色,如供人游览之地的“景”或“景色”,尤指人工制成的景; view则主要指从高处俯视到的景色。例如:
- The prospect from the hill is yet more beautiful.从山上眺望风景更为美丽。
- The West Lake is remarkable for its scenery.西湖以其风景著名。
- The Great Wall is one of the most breath-taking sights in the world.长城是世界上最惊人的壮观景象之一。

误 The train was soon out of the sight.

析 out of sight意为“在视野之外,看不见”, sight前不用定冠词the。
- ☆ 直接源自古英语的gesiht，意为看见的事物。
- sightless adj.无视力的；盲的‖sightly adj. 悦目的；好看的
