- admit的基本意思是“许可进入”,通常指进入某一场所; 还可指一个地方的容量,即“可容纳”。admit还可以作“承认”解,指由于外界压力,被人说服或出于理智考虑而不得不承认某种错误或失信等。
- admit可用作及物动词,也可用作不及物动词。用作及物动词时后接名词、代词、动名词或that从句作宾语。admit还可接以“(as/)to be+ n./adj. ”充当补足语的复合宾语。
admit of意为“有……的余地”，不过人只能admit什么，不能admit of什么。
I admit of no doubt.
该句说法是错误的，可以说I admit the truth of the statement。
He admits being ignorant of it.
有时，可在 admit 和动名词的中间加to。
He admits to being ignorant of it.

- admit, allow, let, permit
- She opened the door reluctantly to admit the unwelcome visitor.她很不情愿地把门打开,让不受欢迎的客人进去了。
- Jack was admitted to the hospital to have his tumour removed.医生收杰克住院切除肿瘤。
- allow指“允许某人做…”,给予客体执行某任务的权力,或同意某人的要求,和permit同义。它们在许多场合中可以通用。不过两者的意思也有细微差别, allow的意思是“允许”,表示主体有权不阻止、不妨碍或默许某事进行的意思。例如：
- Playing ball is not allowed in the park.公园内不许打球。
- Parking is not allowed here.此处不准停车。
- Time does not permit me to stay longer.时间不容许我在这里多留一会。
- Tom's parents will not let him swim in the lake.汤姆的父母不让他在湖里游泳。
- 2.permit 后可接不定式和动名词,但不可接名词从句; let不用动名词作宾语,其宾语后接动词原形。
- Allow me to〔Let me〕 thank you on behalf of our factory.请允许我代表全厂职工向你致谢。
- The facts permit no other explanations.这些事实不容许作其他解释。
- let 是口头语。例如：
- We won't let such a thing happen again.我们绝不允许再发生这样的事。
- admit of, allow of, permit of
- 这组短语都可以表示“容许,留有…的余地”,多用于否定句,有时也可用于肯定句,三者常可互换,但admit of和permit of的主语多为物质或抽象名词,而allow of的主语间或可以是人。例如：
- The matter admits of no delay.这事不容耽搁。
- Your fault doesn't permit of any excuse.你的过失不容争辩。
- You allow of no chance.你没有机会了。
- admit, acknowledge, confess, own
- 1.acknowledge和admit所承认的是不对的或不光彩的事实; confess指承认“错误及罪行”; own承认的不一定是“错误及罪行”,只是一般地表明自己的感觉及处境。例如:
- He acknowledged that he was your inferior.他承认他不及你。
- Did he admit to stealing it?他承认是他偷的吗?
- He confessed where he had hidden the money.他供出了他藏钱的地方。
- 2.acknowledge强调在一定压力下承认, admit强调勉强承认。例如:
- Dan acknowledged himself as criminal.达恩承认自己是罪人。
- I admit to a natural fear.我承认生来胆小。
- 3.acknowledge所承认的一般是隐蔽的, admit, confess和own所承认的不一定是隐蔽的。例如:
- Jane acknowledged using her father's motor-car.珍妮承认用了她父亲的摩托车。
- They admitted my statement to be reasonable.他们承认我的陈述有道理。
- The police have confessed themselves completely puzzled by this strange crime.警方承认他们完全被这桩奇特的罪案搞糊涂了。
- 4.confess语气上较强,属正式语体; own则不如confess正式。
- 5.这四个词用作及物动词时,都可接简单宾语或复合宾语,除own外,其他词均可接动名词。admit, confess和own用作不及物动词都可与介词to搭配,其后均可接动名词。例如:
- They acknowledged having been defeated.他们认输了。
- He confessed taking part in a plot to free the prisoner.他供认自己参与了企图营救那个囚犯的密谋。
- She admitted having done wrong.她承认自己做错了。
- admit, receive, take
- 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。
- The boy admitted stealing the jewels.
- The boy admitted to stealing the jewels.
- The boy admitted that he had stolen the jewels.

析 admit本身已含有“入内”的意思, to enter为多余的。他对我承认犯了一个错误。

正 He admitted to me that he had made a mistake.
析 “对我承认…”不能说admit me that...,而必须说admit to me that...。
