- touch 还可译为“吃”“喝”“比得来”,这时多用于否定结构。
- 在表示触及某人身体的具体部位时,要用 touch sb on...结构。
- touch表示“触,碰,摸”“触觉”“轻按,轻击”“笔画,笔触,润色”“少许,一点”“(心理或道德上的)理解力; 了解,技巧,手腕”时,是可数名词。泛指一般概念的“接触,联系”等时,用作不可数名词。
- touch, affect, move
- move指足以产生某一行动或情感的流露、表露; affect则强调“怜悯”“温柔”,是普通用词; touch是语气更强烈的词,含有“哀泣”的意味。例如:
- She was deeply affected by the news of his death.他去世的消息使她深感悲痛。
- His sad story so touched us that we nearly cried.他那悲惨的遭遇深深打动了我们,使我们几乎要哭出声来。
- touch, approach, equal, match
- 1.equal和match都可表示达到同一水平或标准,不存在差别; equal侧重“相等”; match侧重“相匹敌”。另外, match主要用于力量、表现、兴趣、美感等方面; 而 equal 主要用在数量、价值、程度等方面。例如:
- The pattern on this material matches that of the sofa.这块料上的图案与沙发上的相当。
- 2.approach和touch都表示该事物非常接近另一事物, touch的意思是“赶得上”,两者的差别几乎看不出来; 而approach表示的差别虽微乎其微,但却可看出,即approach表示的差别比touch大些。另外, approach的意思是“向…接近”,表示一个持续的动作,所以可用于进行体,而touch则不能用于进行体。例如:
- His work is approaching perfection.他的作品接近完美无缺。
- No one can touch him as an actor of tragic roles.作为一个扮演悲剧角色的演员,没人能够赶得上他。
- touch, contact
- 这两个词都可表示“接触”“联系”。其区别在于:touch指具体的、感觉器官的接触,并暗示这类接触所带来的优美或亲密的感觉; 而contact指抽象的接触,仅指“联系”而身体未必接触。例如:
- I must contact my lawyer before I make my final decisions.在作出最后决定以前,我必须先同我的律师联系一下。
- Until recently, this remote tribe had contacted little with the outside world.这个边远的部落直到最近和外界几乎没什么联系。
- ☆ 13世纪晚期进入英语，直接源自古法语的touchier，意为尝试，击打；最初源自通俗拉丁语的toccare，意为敲打，打击。
