  • 这组词都含有“描绘”“描述”的意思,其宾语可以是人、物,也可以是事物。它们之间的区别是:
  • 1.describe指用语言文字描述; portray指通过故事、小说等方式用文字来描述,还可专指用笔描绘或绘画; depict指给物体着色或是素描,借用在文学上表示“描写”,强调外表、形象、色彩等具体细节。 例如:
  • Words cannot describe my joy.
  • 言语不能形容我的快乐。
  • The book depicts him as a rather unpleas- ant character.
  • 这本书把他刻画成一个相当令人讨厌 的人物。

  • 英国历史书通常把理查三世说成是个 坏人。
  • 2.describe和depict是生动地、具体地描述,力图将所叙述的内容像图片般栩栩如生地呈现在他人面前; portray是一般地描述。例如:
  • The writer portrays life in a refugee camp very vividly.这位作者生动地描述了难民营中的生活。
  • 3.describe后可接疑问词引起的从句,而portray不能这样用。
