- apparent(ly)習慣上同real(ly)比較，如apparent rather than real（表面的而非真實的)。
- apparent, clear, evident, obvious
- apparent側重于“顯露”“顯而易見”,從表面上看來非常明顯,與real相對立; evident側重于“可以看得見的”“明顯的”,指由于某些證據或考慮各種條件后而推斷出來事物是明顯的; obvious側重于“就在眼前”“一目了然”,無須證明而顯得更加明顯,比evident更加表面化; clear用法及意義很廣泛,無論對聽覺、視覺或理解力來說,任何明朗清楚的事物都可以用這個詞形容。例如:
- The apparent cause of his absence was not a bad cold.他缺席的原因表面上看不是患了重感冒。
- The crimes committed by colonialists are too evident to need any proof.殖民主義者的罪行太顯著了,無須加以證明。
- It was an obvious mistake for him to have gone alone.他獨自前去是個很明顯的錯誤。
- ☆ 14世紀晚期進入英語，直接源自古法語的aparant；最初源自拉丁語的apparentem，意為顯示。
- apparently adv. 表面上地；明顯地
