- fall的基本意思有二:一是向更低的位置纵向移动,意为“降落,落下; 摔下,倒下”“(突然)跌倒”“下降,降低”。二是表示状态的变化,常指陷入不够理想的境地,意为“战斗中受伤倒下,阵亡”“进入…状态”“失去权力,失势,垮台”“被打败,被攻克”“(脸色)突然阴沉下来”。fall引申可表示“降临”“下垂”“往下倾斜”“说出”“堕落,完全为邪念所控制”等。
- fall to意为“开始”时, to是介词,后面只能接名词或动名词。
- fall还有“陷落; 垮台; 灭亡; 没落”的意思,是单数名词,并常与定冠词the连用,可引申作“堕落,沦落”解,是单数名词,有时首字母大写。
- fall asleep, be asleep
- be asleep指睡着的状态,可以接表示延续性时间的状语; 而fall asleep指的是一时的动作。试比较下面两句：
- He has been asleep for three hours.
- One after another, all of them fell asleep.
- fall, descend, drop, sink
- 1.sink指在空气或水中垂直下降、下沉; descend则通常指沿斜线或斜坡下降; 而drop与fall均可指急速地向下坠落,可直可斜。例如:
- The walk descends sharply.小路下倾得很厉害。
- The ship struck against the rocks and sank.那船触礁沉没了。
- We saw an apple falling〔dropping〕 down from the tree yesterday.昨天我们看见一个苹果从树上掉下来。
- 2.drop指物体由于重力从高处往下落; fall指物体由于不明原因或物体本身失去平衡而向下降落,有自然下落的意思。例如:
- She dropped the cup.她把杯子弄掉了。
- Leaves fall in autumn.秋天树叶下落。
- 3.drop通常是有意识、有目的地下落; 而fall则往往是无意识地下落。例如:
- The enemy planes dropped bombs.敌机投下了炸弹。
- Rain is falling fast.雨下得很大。
- 4.drop引申可表示物价的降落; sink还可指精力或意识逐渐丧失。例如:
- The price of oil has dropped sharply.石油价格暴跌。
- His heart sank.他感到沮丧。
- 5.drop一般用作及物动词,偶尔也用作不及物动词; fall则通常用作不及物动词。
- fall short of, lack
- 这两者意思并不相同：lack的意思是“缺乏”;而fall short of的意思是“没有达到”。例如:
- He has the ability to work well, but he lacks confidence.他有能力把工作做好,但他缺乏信心。
- The movie fell short of expectation. 影片没有人们想象中的好。
- The salary increases fell short of what they expected. 工资增加没有他们期待的那样多。
- fall asleep, sleep
- I have slept for seven hours.我已睡了7个小时了。
- Bob was so tired that he fell asleep the moment his head touched the pillow.鲍勃累极了,一碰到枕头就睡着了。
- He fell from the roof.
- He fell off the roof.
- fall, autumn
- 1.一般说, autumn是英语, fall是美语,但这并不绝对。由于秋天是落叶的季节,故美语一般将秋天讲作fall,但在书面语中也用autumn，而在作形容词用时,更是多用autumn而很少用fall。
误 He lost his balance and falled to the ground.
正 He lost his balance and fell to the ground.

误 She fell unconsciously on the floor.
正 She fell unconscious on the floor.
误 How long have you fallen ill?

析 fall是瞬间动词,不能与表示一段时间的状语连用。本句可改用表示延续性的动词be,也可改为it is...since...句型。夕阳西下入大河。
误 The setting sun was falling into the great river.
正 The setting sun was sinking into the great river.
析 fall into的意思是“落入”“掉进”,指突然或瞬间的动作,不用于进行时态。你如果不当心,会跌下楼梯的。
误 You'll fall down on the stairs if you're not careful!
正 You'll fall down the stairs if you're not careful!
析 fall down the stairs就是“跌下楼梯”的意思, down是介词,其后不用on。那婴孩从高脚椅上跌落下来。
误 The baby fell off from its high-chair.
正 The baby fell from its high-chair.

析 表示“从…跌落”时可以用fall from或fall off,在这里不能将from和off并列使用。这个士兵突然跪下投降了。
误 Suddenly the soldier fell with his knees to surrender.
