- drag, draw, pull
- 首先, draw和pull都指拉向动作者,而drag则指拖向另一地; 其次, drag所拖之物一般较重, pull多为一时突然的动作,而draw则显得从容。例如:
- He drew me to himself.
- He dragged the piano to the corner of the room.
- He pulled the door open and rushed out.
- drag out, draw out
- 两者都可作“使…拖得很长”解。drag out侧重于时间的拉长; 而draw out侧重于把事物本身拉长; draw out还有“汲取,草拟”的意思。
- ☆ 15世纪中期进入英语，直接源自古北欧语的draga，意为拖，拉。
