- step还可作“台阶,楼梯”解,主要指室内的台阶或楼梯,有时还可指梯子,引申可表示“级别,等级; 阶段”,有时可指温度计的“度”。a flight of steps表示“一排台阶”。
- in step, in steps
- 这两个短语的区别是:in step中的step是单数形式,表示用同一步调行走,常译成“步调一致”; in steps中的step是复数形式,表示一步一步地行走或行动,常译成“逐渐地”。
- step, pace
- step指脚步提起来放下去,强调动作,有轻重、长短和优美与否之分; 而pace指身体向前移动强调距离,有快慢和从容与否之分。例如:

- step着重举步、迈步; go表示从一处向另一处运动,指走路,也可指乘车,可用于人或其他动物; walk着重用双脚有规律地走路,亦快亦慢,只用于人。例如:
- He stepped back and gave me another look.他后退一步,又看了我一眼。
