- live at, live in, live on
- “住在…街”在英式英语中用live in,在美式英语中用live on;“住在…号”和“住在(…街)…号”在英式英语中和美式英语中都用at。
- live on, live off
- 这两者都可表示“靠…过活”。接职业时只能用live off,不能用live on。例如:
- He prefers to live on his salary and not to spend his savings.他愿意花他的工资生活而不动用储蓄金。
- For the first half of the year we live off the silkworms;for the second half, we live off the land.头半年我们靠养蚕生活,后半年靠种地生活。
- live by, live on
- 这两者意义并不相同。live by的意思是“靠…过活”,指的是手段;live on的意思是“靠…为生”,指的是来源。例如:
- He lived by writing.他以写作为生。
- With the rising cost of living, it is hard for the old people to live on their pensions.由于生活费用不断上涨,老年人靠养老金生活已很困难了。

- She dwelt at length upon the similarities of the two paintings.她详细地讲述了这两幅画的相似之处。
- live with, lodge with, stay with
- 这三个短语意思相近,但也有差别:live with的意思是“寄宿在某人处,与某人同居”;lodge with用于古语体口语中,指投宿在熟人处;stay with指作为客人短期地住在某人家里。例如:
- She lived with him for a couple of years before they got married.他们在结婚前已同居了二三年。
- When we go to the countryside, we lodge with my uncle.我们去乡下寄住在我叔叔家。

- live, alive, living
- 1.alive多用于人,与dead相对,指“还活着的”,着重于状态; living指没有死、消失,继续存在、活动或起着作用,可修饰人,也可修饰物; 而live指“活的; 真的”,只用于物。
- 2.alive只用作表语或后置定语; living既可用作定语,又可用作表语; 而live仅用作定语。例如：
- The mortally wounded man was unconscious but still alive.那个受了致命伤的人处于昏迷状态,可是还活着。
- He has never seen a live tiger.他从没见过一只活老虎。

正 She has been living a very happy life for years.
- ☆ 直接源自古英语的lifian，意为住，生活。
