matter的詳細講解:

詞語用法

n. (名詞)
  1. matter的基本含義是指與精神相對的“物質,物體”,泛指構成客觀物體或宇宙的所有物質,在物理學上指由很少的幾種基本粒子構成的物質,在哲學上則指與意識相對的物質,是不可數名詞,表靜態概念。
  2. matter也可指思想或表達的“題材”,書籍、演說等的“內容”,與“形式”相對,是不可數名詞。
  3. matter也可作“事情”解,有時可轉化為“問題”解。the matter指“麻煩事,困難,毛病”,在句中可用作表語或后置定語,常用在what, something, anything或nothing后。復數形式matters意為“情形,事態”,而不是“多件事”。
  4. matter還可作“重要性”解,為不可數名詞,有時也可作“原因”“理由”解。
  5. (in) a matter of還可與表示時間、距離、金錢的詞連用,意為“…左右,…上下”,有“很少”的意味。
v. (動詞)
  1. matter是不及物動詞,基本意思是“對人們有重大關系,要緊”“重要,有嚴重性”。
  2. matter常用于以it作形式主語的結構中,其真實主語一般為現在分詞短語、that從句、wh-從句或if/whether從句。
  3. 在回答別人的道歉時,應該說It doesn't matter,不說no matter。
  4. matter用于醫學上,指“化膿”。
  5. matter是表示靜態的動詞,一般不用于進行體。

詞義辨析

n. (名詞)
in a matter of, in the matter of
  • 兩者不容混淆:in a matter of的意思是“只消,不過”; 而in the matter of的意思是“關于,對于”。例如:
  • You can finish the course in a matter of weeks.你只消幾周就能學完這門課程。
  • Jimmy has a name in the matter of enthusiasm in work.吉米的工作干勁是有名的。
  • matter, affair, business, concern, thing
  • 這組詞在含糊地指那些所做的事時意義相近,??苫Q。例如:
  • It is a regretful affair〔business, concern, matter, thing〕.這是一件遺憾的事。
  • I don't talk to her about private affairs〔business, concerns, matters, things〕.我從不和她談私事。
  • 它們之間的區別在于:
  • 1.從模糊程度上看, affair<matter<thing, thing的詞義最不確切,??捎迷谟幸馐垢拍詈觳磺宓膱龊?。例如:
  • How did you find things in America?你覺得美國怎樣?
  • 2.從含義上看, affair強調運行或操作過程,如一道程序,一筆交易,一個行動,一項事業等。business強調職責關系,例如:
  • It is her business to take good care of the baby.看護好這個嬰兒是她的職責。
  • concern強調利害相關,例如:
  • It is no concern of mine.此事與我無關。
  • matter強調必須考慮和處理,例如:
  • We have a lot of matters to do.我們有許多事情要做。
  • thing則是一般用語,口語中常表示說話內容預先未考慮好或說話者力圖掩飾自己的觀點,例如:
  • I've another thing to talk with you.我還有一件事跟你說。
  • 3.從用法上看, business不能用復數,而affair在指重大的或頭緒較多的事務時則需要用復數。
  • 4.從搭配范圍上看,與foreign、international、state等詞連用時只能用affair,在短語have an affair with sb (與某人有不正當男女關系)中也只能用affair。在指商業上的生意和活動或指“公事”“正事”時只能用business,例如:
  • It's a pleasure to do business with you.很高興和你做生意。
  • Business before pleasure.公事比娛樂要緊。
  • 口語中作“出了毛病”“失?!苯鈺r,只能用matter而不能用affair和business,例如:
  • What's the matter with you?你怎么啦?
  • 在泛指“東西”“物品”時,用affair和thing均可。例如:
  • And these Tubes were convenient things〔affairs〕.而這地下鐵道是非常方便的東西。
  • matter, material, stuff, substance
  • 這組詞都可表示“物質”。其區別在于:
  • 1.matter泛指構成客觀物體或宇宙的所有物質。在物理學上指由很少的幾種基本粒子構成的物質; 在哲學上則指與mind(意識)相對的物質。例如:
  • Matter occupies space.物質占據空間。
  • 2.stuff, material和substance都可指構成或制作某物的材料或零件, material特指人造制品的制作原料, substance則指某種可使某物具有某種特性的特殊物質。例如:
  • Hope is the stuff that dreams are made of.希望正是構成理想的材料。
  • The tips of matches are covered with chemical substance.火柴頭上包著一層化學物質。
  • 3.material還可指文學創作的素材,而其他的詞卻無此義。例如:
  • He is now collecting material for a biography of Du Fu.他正在為寫作杜甫傳記而收集資料。
  • 4.stuff是日常用語,不用于科技文體中,而其他的詞則可用作科技術語。例如:
  • He was told to move his stuff out of the room.人家叫他把他的東西搬出房間去。
  • v. (動詞)
    下面兩個句子意思不同:
  • It doesn't matter about me.
  • 不必為我擔心。
  • It doesn't matter to me.
  • 我不在乎。
  • affair,business,matter,concern,thing
  • 這些名詞均含“事情”之意。
  • affair含義較廣,側重指已發生或必須去做的任何事情或事務。復數形式多指重大或較復雜的事務。
  • business通常指較重要或較難而又必須承擔的事情,也可指商事。
  • matter普通用詞,著重指一件考慮中的或需要處理的事。
  • concern往往強調與個人或團體利害有直接或重大關系的事。
  • thing用作“事情”解時,詞義較籠統、含糊,多用于指不很具體的事。
  • material,matter,substance,stuff
  • 這些名詞均含“物質,東西”之意。
  • material通常指組成客觀存在物的部分或其原料。
  • matter通常指構成實物的物質,與精神相對立。在科學上,指占有空間,并能以某種方式被感官覺察的一切東西。
  • substance多指某一種形式的物質,既可指元素也可指化合物。
  • stuff多用于日常生活中,非正式用詞,常指構成整體的所有部分、物體或項目,有時指劣等材料,含輕蔑意味。
  • problem,question,issue,matter
  • 這些名詞均含“問題”之意。
  • problem指客觀上存在的、難以處理或難以理解的問題。
  • question通常指用口頭或書面提出來要求回答或有待討論解決的問題。
  • issue多指意見能達到一致的問題,但要通過爭論或討論解決。
  • matter含義不很具體,暗示人們考慮和關心的事和話題。

    v. (動詞)
      你來不來對他都無關緊要。

      It doesn't matter with him whether you will come or not.

      It doesn't matter to him whether you will come or not.
