词义辨析

v. (动词)
inquire, ask, interrogate, query, question
  • 这组词都有“问,询问”之意。其区别是:
  • ask是最常用词,指对不了解的事情提出问题,并期望得到答复,常用在口语中,例如:
  • Did you ask him his name and address?你问他的姓名和地址了吗?
  • inquire多用作书面语,比ask正式,常译作“询问,调查”,指为得到某人或某物的真实确切情况而详细“询问”,但不一定要有被问者,例如:
  • The police are trying to inquire into the cause of his death.警察正在设法查出他的死因。
  • question指对某人或某物主动提出问题,以便了解详细情况,意思为“提出,质问”,含有审问的意思,例如:
  • The prisoner was questioned by the police.犯人被警察所质问。
  • interrogate意为“盘问,提问题”,多指为了某种特殊目的,希望把一切搞清楚而进行的有条理的询问,可与question互换,例如:
  • The lawyer took a long time to interrogate the witness fully.律师花了很长的时间来彻底地盘问证人。
  • query作“质问”或“提出疑问”解,这种“质问”多指向自己的上级或有权势的人提出的质问,目的在于消除疑问,例如:
  • They queried the President about his intentions.他们对总统的想法提出了疑问。
  • ask,demand,inquire,question
  • 这些动词均含有“问,询问”之意。
  • ask最普通用词,可与demand, inquire和question换用,但ask用于口语中,指提出问题让人回答。
  • demand指根据自己的权利、职责或身份认为有必要弄清情况而正式发问,常隐含命令对方回答的意味。
  • inquire较正式用词,指为得到真实情况而详细询问或调查了解。
  • question指因感到可疑或为了解情况,弄清究竟而发问,有时指一连串的发问。
