- take不可指“拿来”或“取来”，因此Please take your pen with you when you come tomorrow.该句是错误的，应将take改成bring；
take可指“买”。注意，表示“买”时，并不可以都是take。不可说I went into the shop to take a pen，要用buy；
I will take this pen.
They have taken the cottage for the winter.
He has taken in several points of interest during the last week.
When will the new manager take over?
- 英国人常用take ... in to dinner来表示“伴（女子）入席”，而美国人则习惯用take ... out to dinner；

He has taken to this good habit.
- take还可接以“to be/as/for n./adj. ”充当补足语的复合宾语。
- take after的意思是“像,与…相似”; take back的意思是“收回,撤回”; take down的意思是“写下,记录下”; take in的意思是“接纳,吸入,收容”“欺骗”; take off的意思是“脱下(衣帽等),除去,拿开”; take on的意思是“呈现(面貌),具有(特征)”; take out的意思是“发泄”; take over的意思是“接管,接任,继承”; take to的意思是“开始(从事于),养成(某种习惯),沉湎于”; take up的意思是“开始做或学,对…有兴趣”; take up with的意思是“与…来往,与…结交”。

两者都可作“把…认为…”解, take as是比较客观地以为,而take for强调的是“误以为”。
- take, clutch, grab, grasp, seize, snatch
这组词都可表示“伸出手或臂去抓住某物”。其区别在于:take仅指抓住具体的东西; clutch强调匆匆忙忙、紧急、迫不及待,因而抓住的可能性较小,引申可用于思想上或情感上的把握; grab常含有庸俗和不关心他人或无视公共准则的意思; grasp的基本意思是指用手、牙齿、爪等紧紧抓住某人或某物,引申指能充分理解难以理解的东西; seize通常指突然地、有力地抓住,引申用于无形的东西时,往往强调该物在快速掠过或难以捉摸,或强调有力地、出人意料地夺取,或强调理解了难以理解或难以分析的事物; snatch强调不为人知、救人及时或动作粗暴,引申指偶然地或无准备地抓住能抓住的东西。例如:She clutched at my arm as she fell.她跌倒时想要抓住我的胳臂。He grabbed the coin and ran off.他抓起硬币就跑了。I grasped the man by the arm.我抓住了那人的手臂。He seized the gun from the robber.他从强盗手里夺过了枪。The letter was snatched out of my hand before I could read it.那封信我还没来得及看就被别人从我手里拿走了。
- take, bring, carry, fetch, get
这组词都可以表示“拿”“带”。其区别是：1.bring 表示“拿来”,指从别处拿过来,方向一般是说话者,多指比较近的东西,也可以指带到一个说话人将要到达的地方,有时还可指由说话者随身带着(去某处),可以包括“带走”; take 表示“拿走”“带走”,指从此处拿出去,例如:When you go home take the letter with you.你回家去的时候,把信带去。fetch表示“去拿来”; carry则指“随身带着”,没有明确的方向性,同时强调体力方面的负担,可代替bring和take,例如:The mother carries her baby in her arms.母亲把小宝宝抱在怀里。get与fetch的意思差不多,都表示“(到别处去把某人或某物)取来”,但它更口语化。2.bring 和 take 都表示单程,只是方向相反,而fetch则表示一往一返。3.fetch强调目的性,即专门到一个地方把(某人)某物请〔带〕回来; bring则强调方向性,即动作朝着说话者的方向或所在地。4.take, bring和carry都可指携带〔运送〕较小的东西, carry还可指携带〔运送〕较大、较重的东西。5.take, bring和carry都可指人运送, carry还可指马、车等牲口或运输工具运送,也可指以管道的形式运输。
- take, cost, pay, spend
这组词的共同意思是“花费”,指某人买或做某事所花费的时间或金钱。其区别是：1.spend和pay的主语只能是人; cost的主语是物或事; take后接时间时，主语也可以是人。此外，take和cost还可以用动词不定式或动词不定式短语作真实主语,而it为形式主语。例如:I paid him $200 for this painting.我付他200美元买了这幅画。She spent ten dollars shopping for food.她购买食品花了10美元。The work cost me a lot of time and effort.这本著作花费了我大量的时间和精力。We took a week to finish the work.我们花了一个星期完成这项工作。It costs us a lot of money to build a house.盖房子花了我们很多钱。It took me one year to read this book.我用一年时间读了这本书。2.pay的搭配范围最窄,只接金钱; cost的搭配范围最宽,除接金钱和时间外，还可接劳力、精力、财富、健康、职位甚至生命等。例如:“Are you paying cash?”“No,I will pay by cheque.”“你付现金吗?”“不,我用支票支付。”Careless driving cost him his life.粗心大意地开车使他丧了命。3.spend可接动名词，而cost, pay, take可接动词不定式。4.spend, take, pay都可用于被动结构，而cost不能用于被动结构。
- take, last
这两个词都与持续时间有关。其区别是：last指某事持续一段时间或某东西够用,后面不一定要用时间短语;take指某人需要一段时间完成某事,后面必须接时间短语。例如:I hope this fine weather lasts.但愿这样的天气持续下去。I'll clear up, you take too long.我来整理,你花的时间太多了。

- take, admit, receive
这三个词都有“接受”的意思。其区别是：receive主要表示接到或收到,而不含采取主动或积极行动的意思; admit强调接纳,暗示接纳者采取允许、宽容的态度或作出让步; take是日常用词,指不带有主观意愿地收下。
- take place, happen, occur
这三者均可作“发生”解。它们的区别是:1.happen和occur往往表示事情的发生带有偶然性, happen是一般用语, occur是较正式用语; take place常指按计划“发生”。例如:The explosion happened〔occurred〕 during an exercise near the town.在离市镇不远的地方演习时发生了爆炸。The talk is scheduled to take place tomorrow morning at eight o'clock.预定明早8时举行会谈。2.当表示具体事情的名词作主语时,用happen和occur都可,如果不是表示具体事情的词则多用happen。在否定句里一般用occur。例如:These events happened〔occured〕 last year.这些事是去年发生的。What happened after I left?我走后发生了什么事情?It didn't occur to him to ask for help.他没想到请别人帮忙。
- take, drink, have
这三个词的共同意思是“吸”或“饮”。其区别是：1.就宾语来说,这组词都可指喝酒、饮料或水; have还可指吸烟; take还可指吸烟和呼吸新鲜空气。2.就方式来说, take和have可用任何方式; 而drink通常指用嘴直接喝,而不用勺、匙或吸管。3.drink还可引申表示“吸取”知识。
- take care of, attend, mind
三者的共同意思是“关心”或“照顾”。其区别在于：1.mind多指暂时的而不是长期的看管。例如:Will you please mind the baby?请你照管一下这孩子好吗?Mary minded my shop while I was at lunch.当我午餐时,玛丽帮我照看商店。2.take care of强调要付出爱心。例如:Don't worry,I'll take care of you.别担心,我会照顾你的。Mother stayed home to take care of my baby.妈妈留在家里照料我的孩子。Take care of the public property, please.请爱护公物。3.attend强调职业性地,全心全意地去“关心”或“照顾”。例如:She attended on the wounded soldier day and night.她日夜护理受伤的战士。
- take part in, join in
两者都可作“参加某项活动”解。其区别是：1.参加人(即主语)的身份不一样:take part in指以主办人或发起人的身份参加某项活动,而join in则是以成员身份参加。2.在活动中起的地位不一样:take part in强调“发挥作用”,做主角,而join in则含有“平等”的意味。3.这两个词在搭配范围上也有差别:“参加工作、会议”自然要在其中发挥作用,要以主人翁姿态,所以一般用take part in; 而“参加比赛、讨论”,作为“普通参加者”参加,就要用join in了。
- take part in, attend, join, participate
这组词(组)都可作“参加”解。其区别是：join指参加某团体或组织成为其中一员或参加活动,是非正式用语。attend主要指“到场”或“出席”会议、宴会、典礼、仪式等。例如:He never attended a funeral.他从不参加丧礼。participate是不及物动词,后接in,指参与活动并积极从事工作,是正式用语。例如:I'll try to follow your advice about participating in students' activities.我尽量遵照你的劝告,参加学生的活动。take part in指参加一项工作,在其中分担一部分,也指参加活动并积极工作。例如:I'm not going to take part in arguments.我不打算参加辩论。
- take place, chance, come off
这组词(组)的共同意思是“发生”。其区别在于:1.chance含有“偶然”发生的意味; take place和come off常指按计划“发生”。例如:On our vacation we chanced upon an interesting antique store.我们度假时无意中发现一家有趣的古玩店。The sports meet came off in spite of the rain.尽管下雨运动会仍如期举行了。The talk is scheduled to take place tomorrow morning at eight o'clock.预定明早8时举行会谈。2.take place的主语只能是事物; come off强调出现的结果。例如:What may take place with telephones in the future?将来电话会发生什么变化呢?The wedding came off in spite of Jim and Mary's last minute quarrel.尽管吉姆和玛丽结婚前最后一刻还在争吵,婚礼还是正常举行了。3.chance是一个较庄重并带有几分古风的用语。例如:It chanced that the winter of that year was a severe one.碰巧,那年冬天特别寒冷。
