slow的详细讲解:

词语用法

adj.(形容词)

  2. slow可作定语或表语,用作表语时其后可接动词不定式、介词短语或that从句; slow也可以用作宾语补足语。
  3. slow前可用rather, too等来修饰。
adv.(副词)
  1. slow用作副词时,常用来修饰动词。
v.(动词)
  1. slow用作形容词或副词的意思是“慢”,用作动词时意思是“(使)变慢”,指由于外界原因使汽车等速度变慢。引申可指逐渐地掌握一门技术。
  2. slow既可用作及物动词,也可用作不及物动词。用作及物动词,可接名词或代词作宾语。
  3. slow可接副词up〔down〕表示“(使)慢下来”。

词义辨析

adj.(形容词)
下面两个句子的意思相同:
  • She was slow to react.
  • She was slow in reaction.
  • 她反应迟钝。
下面两个句子的意思不同:
  • She was slow in learning English.
  • 她学习英语很缓慢。
  • She was slow at learning English.
  • 她不善于学习英语。
adv.(副词)
slow, slowly
这两个词都有“慢”的意思,都可用作副词。其区别是:
1.slow除可用作副词外,还可用作形容词或动词。例如:
He caught the slow train to Birmingham.他赶上去伯明翰的慢车。
2.slow侧重于表示状态,而slowly则表示动作的方式。例如:
  • She walked slow.
  • 她行走缓慢。
  • She walked slowly.
  • 她缓慢地走着。
3.slowly可用在多种场合,位置较灵活,既可放在谓语动词之前,也可放在谓语动词之后,有时甚至放在句首; slow只用在如go, run, speak, read, burn, drive等动词的后面或how引起的感叹句中。例如:
He walks slowly.他走得很慢。
Do speak slower!说慢一点行吗!
We slowly climbed over the mountain.我们慢慢爬过了山头。

5.slow比slowly语气更强。
v.(动词)
slow, delay, detain, retard, slacken
这组词都可表示“使某人〔事〕落后于”原计划的安排或通常的进展速度。它们之间的区别是:delay主要指因某事的干扰而妨碍按时完成或到达; detain主要指耽误时间,不能按时到达或离开,也可指不能完成想完成的事情; retard主要指减慢运动、进步速度; slow常与up或down连用,指降低进步的速度,强调主观的意图和目的性; slacken侧重某种松弛〔懈〕。例如:
I was detained late in the factory.厂里有事我无法脱身,很晚才离开。
Cold weather retards the growth of the crops.寒冷的天气妨碍作物的生长。
His bad leg slows him down a lot.他那条受伤的腿使他的速度大受影响。
Don't slacken your efforts when the job is only half done.工作只做到一半时可别松劲。

常见错误

adv.(副词)
  1. 请慢慢说。

    Please speak slow.

    slow与go, drive, speak, read, walk, run等动词连用时,一般放在这些词之后。

v.(动词)
  1. 这本书很乏味。

    This book is fairly slow.

    This book is rather slow.

    slow一般用rather或too等修饰,而不用fairly, much等修饰。
