small的详细讲解:

词语用法

adj.(形容词)
  1. small可指体积、程度、数量、价值、力量、重要性等的“小的,少的”; 也可指“幼小的,年幼的”,在句中用作定语。
  2. small表示“小规模的,小范围的”“小气的,心胸狭窄的”,通常用作定语; 表示“些微的,几乎没有的”,与不可数名词连用,通常用作定语。
  3. small还可表示为“不重要的,微不足道的,微小的”。
  4. small的比较级为smaller,最高级为smallest。
  5. 当small作为特征形容词和表示形状、年龄、新旧等其他特征形容词一起修饰名词时, small应位于表示“新旧”的形容词之后,而位于表示“形状”“年龄”的形容词之前。当small和描绘性形容词、表示颜色的形容词、表类属的形容词,名词或动名词性形容词一起修饰名词时,特征形容词一般位于描绘形容词后,其他形容词之前。

词义辨析

adj.(形容词)
small, little, tiny
这组词的共同意思是“小”。其区别是:
little和small在修饰物时,前者着重数量不多、少; 后者侧重于程度和尺寸的大小。little和small用来修饰人时,前者侧重于因年龄小而使身形娇小,后者则侧重于指比一般人身材矮小,含有比较的意味。另外, little还含有一种small所没有的感情色彩,往往含有“小得可爱”“小得可怜”等意思。tiny比little和small更强调小,含有“微不足道”的意思。例如:
There is little gasoline left in the tank.油箱里没有多少汽油了。
The boy is small for his age.这男孩身材小得同年龄不相称。
He lived in a tiny cottage all by himself.他一人住在一间很小的茅屋里。
little small tiny minute miniature
这些形容词均有“小的”之意。
  • little:little指在体积、数量、距离、年龄、身材等方面比正常的小,多带主观感情色彩,含小而可爱或小巧的意味。
  • small:small多指数量、面积、体积、价值、数字或意义等的小或少,指略小于正常的大小。
  • tiny:tiny强调与同类或其他物体比较,小得超出正常比例,有时带强烈的感情色彩。
  • minute:minute指小得难看见,有时需用显微镜才看得见。
  • miniature:miniature指由正常体积微缩的物体。
