频率的英文翻译(关于频率的6个单词)

英语中有些表示频率的词在句子中有着重要的作用,正确理解并应用,可以使我们的表述更加准确,不会产生歧义。

总结起来,英语中有6个常用的表示频率的词,我们来看看它们的准确含义。

特别提示一下,为了更好地解释单词的含义,我选择用英文解释,大家可以认真体会一下。

这6个表示频率的词如下:

always usually often sometimes seldom never

我们用百分比来表示一下这几个词的关系:

always 100% all of the time

usually 100% most of the time

often 50% much of the time

sometimes 50% some of the time

seldom 0% almost never

never 0% not at any time

从以上可以看出,always和usually的频率是最高的,其中always几乎是频率最高的时候用,而usually次之。

看两个例子:

My cat always stays in home.=My cat stays in home all of the time.(大多数猫咪都这样吧)

He usually goes to shopping mall at weekend.=He goes to shopping mall at weekend most of the time.

often和sometimes频率只有一半,意味着如果你使用这两个词,别人会认为你有一半时间可能不是这样做。

再看两个例子:

Her sisters often have coffee together.=Her sisters have coffee together much of the time.(That means, they don't have coffee together all of the time.)

The president sometimes goes to bed before eleven.=The president goes to bed before eleven some of the time.(That means, the president doesn't always go to bed before eleven.)

频率最低的两个词是seldom和never,低到词性都具有否定意义了,如果你用这两个词,那就是非常明确且坚定地告诉别人,你从来不会这样做。

还是看两个例子:

Mary seldom has dinner with her boyfriend.=Mary almost never has dinner with her boyfriend.(咦,什么情况?)

Mary will never have dinner with her boyfriend.=Mary won't have dinner with fer friend at any time.(情况比较严重哦)

以上几个表示频率的词,有些时候是可以百分比相近的词是可以混着用的,但有的时候需要更明白确切地表达的时候,就要认真对待了。

You will never forget these words, will you?
