- 在口语里, turn可表示“惊吓,震惊”“不适,疾病的发作”,作“惊吓,震惊”解时,通常用作单数形式。
- turn, alter, become, change, convert, modify, vary
这组词的共同意思是“改变”“变化”。change和alter有时可以互换。例如:Whatever we do, we can't change〔alter〕 the facts.不管我们做什么,我们总不能改变事实。He has changed〔altered〕 a lot since I last saw him.自从上次见面到现在,他变了很多。The weather changes〔alters〕 almost daily.天气差不多天天在变。其区别是：1.change在这几个词中是最普遍、最不正式的一个,可用于任何变化的过程,而不论变化的性质和程度; alter指局部的、表面的、轻微的“改变”“改动”,修改后仍基本上保持原状; alter和convert都指形式和用途上的局部微小改变; turn指彻底改变,以至面目全非,且常用于朝坏的方向改变; modify指限定在一定范围内的修改或修饰,以使之更完美; vary则指事物或其一部分暂时地或反复地变化,从而使事物各部分呈现不同外貌和特点。例如:When matter changes to a substance different from what it was, the change is a chemical change.当物质变成和原来不同的物质时,这种变化是化学变化。The plan is O.K. at large, but I suggest it be altered.该计划总的来说是可以的,但我建议做进一步修改。Pressure varies directly with temperature and inversely with volume.压力随温度成正比例变化,与容积成反比例变化。All the bank bill was converted into cash.所有的银行票据都兑换成了现金。Those who were once for him have turned against him.那些原来支持他的人现在转而反对他。The newspaper turned against the president.该报转而攻击总统。After he left the university, he became a teacher, but he later turned to translation.他大学毕业后当了教师,但后来转向翻译工作。2.convert可指改变信仰,尤其是宗教信仰; modify指态度变温和。例如:He has converted from Buddhism to Catholicism.他已放弃佛教改信天主教了。You'd better modify your tone.你最好缓和一下你的口气。He will have to modify his views if he wants to be elected.他如果想当选,就得把观点变得明朗些。
- turn, become, come, go, grow
这组词均可用作系动词,表示“变成”。其区别是：1.come多指向好的方向转变; go往往指向坏的方面转变; become指向好的(也可指向坏的)方面发展, turn是正式用语,指向好的,也指向坏的方面转变。试比较:
2.come的主语往往是人; become的主语可以是人或物; 而go的主语多是物。3.come的表语通常是形容词; become的表语可以是形容词、代词或名词(须加不定冠词); go和grow的表语为形容词; turn的表语可以是形容词或名词(不加不定冠词)。
- When did that style of dress come into fashion?

- The storeroom has become a workshop.
- The storeroom has been turned into a workshop.
- turn out, bear, produce, yield
这四个词(组)的意思相近,都表示“生产出”。其区别是：bear表示“产仔或结果实”,可引申指“再生产”; produce的用法更广,可指生产一切有形的或无形的东西; yield也表示生产,但强调结果与回报,而不是所做的努力; turn out强调结果,但同时还侧重先前付出的劳动与艰辛。例如:
- The soil bears good cotton.
- Gas can be produced from coal.
- His business yields big profits.
- This factory can turn out 100 cars a day.
- turn out, prove
这两者的共同意思是“证明”。其区别在于:prove的主语可以是人,也可以是事物; 而turn out的主语一般是物,有时含有“意外”的含义,常用于口语中。例如:His first attempt proved successful.他的第一次尝试证明是成功的。They proved that he was guilty.他们证明他有罪。As it has turned out, there was no need to worry.结果证明当初不必担心。
