词义辨析

adv. (副词)
possibly, maybe, perhaps, probably
  • 这四个词都有“可能,或许”的意思。其区别是:
  • 1.probably指“多半”,其可能性超过一半; perhaps和maybe指“或许”,其可能性大致为一半; possibly仅指“也许”“有可能”,其可能性低于一半。例如:
  • Probably he will succeed.他很可能会成功。
  • Perhaps〔maybe〕 he will succeed.他也许会成功。
  • He will possibly succeed.他有可能成功。
  • 2.maybe比perhaps更口语化,且要用于句首; perhaps可用于句末、句中、句首; probably多用于句中。
  • 3.maybe和possibly可用于礼貌的建议或请求,另三个词无此义。例如:
  • Maybe you could move the chair.也许你可以挪动一下那张椅子。
  • Could you possibly lend me 1000 yuan ?你能借给我1000元钱吗?
  • 下面两句意思不同:
  • They can't possibly come today.
  • 他们今天不可能来。
  • They can't, possibly, come today.
  • 他们今天也许不能来。
  • maybe,perhaps,possibly,probably
  • 这些副词均有“或许、大概”之意。
  • maybe普通用词,美国英语多用,指某事也许如此,含不能确定意味。
  • perhaps普通用词,多用于英国,与maybe同义。
  • possibly指客观上潜存着发生某种变化的可能。
  • probably一般指根据逻辑推理,估计有发生的可能,把握性较大,语气比possibly强。
