词义辨析

v. (动词)
signify, connote, denote, imply, indicate, mean, suggest, symbolize
  • 这组词的共同意思是“意指”。其区别是:
  • 1.mean是普通用语,对于明确与否的观点、物品都可以用; suggest意为“具有…的含义”,暗示“表明”。例如:
  • He claims to mean one thing, but his choice of words suggests quite another.他宣称指的是一件事,而他的话却含有另外一个含义。
  • 2.indicate与imply意为“说明,表明,象征”, indicate通常指明显、明确的事物。例如:
  • A high fever indicates a severe illness.高烧预示着要生病了。
  • imply通常指含蓄地、不明确地“暗示”。例如:
  • His smile implied that he had forgotten all about the time.他的笑预示着他完全忘记了时间。
  • 3.denote与connote通常指明示的内容、含义,从外观上即可看出。例如:
  • The word “lion” denotes〔connotes〕 a certain kind of animal.“狮子”这个词指一种动物。
  • 4.connote与suggest和imply有时可以替换,但connote的用法比其他两个词较为正式。例如:
  • Hunger connotes〔suggests, implies〕 unhappiness.饥饿就预示着不高兴。
  • 5.signify与symbolize表示“意味,象征”, symbolize通常指用物、符号代表某物,着重表示抽象的概念。例如:
  • What does this strange mark signify〔symbolize〕?这个奇怪的符号代表什么?
  • 6.signify有时可以和mean互换。例如:
  • A red sunset signifies〔means〕 fine weather.一轮火红的落日象征着一个好天气。
