silent的详细讲解:

词语用法

adj. (形容词)
  1. silent的基本意思是“寂静的,无声的”。引申可作“沉默的,只字不提的”解,可指习惯上非绝对必要的话不说,也可指在特殊场合因特殊原因而对讲话有节制。
  2. silent还可作“不发音”解,作此解时无比较级和最高级形式。
  3. silent在句中常用作定语或表语,偶尔也可作宾语补足语。silent作表语时,后常接介词on〔about〕引起的短语,表示“对…保持沉默,对…未提到”。

词义辨析

adj. (形容词)
silent, calm, peaceful, quiet, still
  • 这组形容词的共同意思是“安静”“平静”“寂静”。其区别在于:
  • 1.在修饰环境时各词所指的状态为:calm指风平浪静; peaceful指没有战争或骚乱; quiet指没有吵闹干扰; still指完全没有声音。例如:
  • The sea was calm yesterday.昨天海水是平静的。
  • Countries should settle their disputes by peaceful means.各国应通过和平手段解决他们的争端。
  • Differences among them could have been reconciled by them through peaceful consultations.他们中间的分歧本来可以由他们和平协商调解。
  • He had a bad headache and needed being quiet.他头疼得厉害,需要安静。
  • Everything was deadly still.万籁俱寂。
  • 2.在修饰人时:calm指人心平气和,毫不激动; peaceful表示“安详的”“温和的”; quiet指性情温和、安静等,有时也指人的闲散或不活动; still指“一动不动”; silent侧重“沉默”“不说话”,但不一定不动。例如:
  • The teacher is peaceful when the student appeared.当这个学生出现时,这个老师很温和。
  • We should keep quiet in the hospital.在医院里我们应该保持安静。
  • His hands were never still.他的双手一刻也不停。
  • We've been silent for too long. It's time to speak out.我们沉默得太久了,现在是大胆地发表意见的时候了。
  • She sat silent in her own room.她在自己的房间里一动不动地坐着。
  • silent, reticent, taciturn
  • 这三个词都可表示“沉默寡言的”。其区别是:
  • silent指有沉默寡言的特点,只说必须说的话,但也可指在某一场合因为某种缘故而不说话; taciturn意为不爱说话,天性倾向于沉默; reticent意为不把所知道的事情说出,尤指对私事秘而不宣。例如:
  • He is a taciturn man who dislikes parties.他是一个不喜欢聚会、天性沉默寡言的人。
  • He is reticent about his early life.他对自己早年的生活秘而不宣。
  • 常见错误

    adj. (形容词)
      请肃静。
