tell的详细讲解:

词语用法

v.(动词)
  1. tell的基本意思是用语言或文字“告知”“告诉”“讲述”某事,强调思想的表达,而不强调表达的方式。引申可表示“吩咐”“嘱托”“命令”“确定”“区分,辨别”“泄露秘密”“猜测”“产生效果”等。
  2. tell可用作不及物动词,也可用作及物动词。用作及物动词时,接名词、代词、带疑问词的动词不定式或wh-从句作宾语。也可接双宾语,其直接宾语可以是名词或代词,也可以是带疑问词的动词不定式或that/wh-从句,其间接宾语可以转化为介词to的宾语。
  3. tell作“吩咐”解时,还可接以动词不定式充当补足语的复合宾语。
  4. tell可用于被动结构。
  5. tell在非正式语体中可以引出直接引语。

词义辨析

v.(动词)
tell, acquaint, advise, inform, notify
这组词的共同意思是“通知”,其区别是:
1.除tell外是一般用词,其余各词均为正式用词。
2.在“通知”的手段上, acquaint主要指向某人提供资料; tell是指将某事直接告诉某人或把某些内容向他人讲述,即口头通知; inform既可指提供有关资料或信息,也可指直接告知某事; notify指正式用书面通知; advise则常用于商业活动,既可指书面通知,即通告,电告,也可指口头告知或电话通知,但不一定是正式的。
3.在通知的内容上, acquaint常用于范围广泛的内容复杂的信息; tell多指一个故事或一件事; inform既可指重要的信息,也可指普通的一件事; advise多指商业活动中对方应知晓的信息; notify则指严肃的事或对方应知晓的事,暗含事情紧迫,需立即答复或处理的意味。
4.在用法上,这组词均为及物动词,可跟简单宾语或“间接宾语+that/wh-从句”, acquaint还可跟with短语,常用于被动结构; advise还可跟of短语; inform还可跟含“带疑问词的动词不定式和含介词as to或about的复合宾语”; notify还常跟of短语和含动词不定式的复合宾语,常用于被动结构。
tell, tell about〔of〕
tell可直接接宾语,如story, news, time, name, answer, difference, reason等名词或代词,意思是“告诉…”; tell about〔of〕的意思是“讲述〔说明〕关于…的事”。
tell of, speak to, talk to
参见speak条。
tell, bid, command, order
这组词都有命令的意思。其区别是:
1.order和bid是及物动词,而command和tell既可作及物动词,又可作不及物动词。
2.order和command一般指上级命令下级; command是权力用语,更强调下命令的人有权威,特别指军官命令士兵; 而order却可以指某个人对他人下命令,如医生嘱咐病人; tell则多用于日常情况,“吩咐”的意味往往大于“命令”。
3.bid态度并不十分强制; command却有“强迫”“命令”“必须服从”的意味; order语气比command弱,不那么正式; tell的语气则更弱。
4.跟动词不定式的复合结构时, bid多不带to,而command和order则须保留to。
5.order还可表示“次序”或“订货”的意思,而command和bid则没有此意。
tell, say, speak, talk
这组词的共同含义是“说,告诉”。其区别是:
say指“说出”,着重指说出具体的内容,一般用作及物动词,后面的宾语是所说的话; speak指“说话,发言”,着重开口说话的动作,一般用作不及物动词,其宾语通常是表示某种语言名称的词; talk指“讲话,谈论”,意思与speak相近,在一些情况下可以通用,通常talk用作不及物动词; tell指“告诉”,是直接给对方讲或以间接的方式转诉某事,在多数情况下, tell的后面通常接双宾语,在少数情况下可用简单宾语。试体会下面这几个词的用法和含义:He had talked for a long time, but he spoke so fast that we couldn't catch what he said.他讲了很长时间,但他说得太快了,我们没听清他讲了些什么。
Mr. Green was invited to speak〔talk〕 to us on Greek philosophy.格林先生应邀给我们讲希腊哲学。
He told me the news.他告诉了我这个消息。
He told me that he was coming.他告诉我说他就来。
say speak state talk tell utter
这些动词均有“说、讲”之意。
  • say:say最普通常用词,指用语言表达思想,着重所说的内容。
  • speak:speak侧重于说话动作的本身,着重说话的能力而不在内容,比如能说某种语言。
  • state:state较正式用词,通常指用明确的语言或文字着重地叙述事实,既强调内容又注重语气。
  • talk:talk普通用词,侧重指与人交谈时的连续说话,可指单方面较长谈话,和speak一样,着重说活动作而不侧重内容。
  • tell:tell指告诉或讲述。
  • utter:utter着重说话的行为,常指声音的使用,突出用噪子发声。

常见错误

v.(动词)
  1. 他告诉我们他通过了考试。

    He told that he had passed the exam.

    He told us that he had passed the exam.

    tell后不能直接接从句表示“告知某人某事”时,须接双宾语,即tell sb sth。

  2. 老师叫我们不要吵闹。

    The teacher told us don't make any noise.

    The teacher told us not to make any noise.

    “告诉某人不要做某事”,英语用“tell sb not to do sth ”,即用不定式作复合宾语。

  3. 说实在话,我不太想去看演出。

    Telling the truth,I'm not very interested in going to the show.

    To tell the truth,I'm not very interested in going to the show.

    to tell the truth常在句中作插入语,这是一种固定表达方式,不用分词短语。

  4. 正如我昨天告诉你的,他在会上站起来说话却不知所云。

    As I spoke to you yesterday, he got up to speak and said nothing at the meeting.

    As I told you yesterday, he got up to speak and said nothing at the meeting.

    说出具体的内容要用动词tell,而speak只表示说话的动作而不涉及内容。

  5. 不要说谎话!

    Don't say lies!

    Don't tell lies!

    say与tell相比较,只有tell才能和有祈使语气的话连用。

  6. 她说:“我要走了。”

    She told,“I am leaving.”

    She said,“I am leaving.”

    tell后面一般要加说话的对象(人称代词),然后再加说话的内容; 而say可以直接加内容。

  7. 简和萨长得这么相像,只有她们的母亲才分得清她们。

    They are so alike that only their mother can tell Jane and Sar.
