BBC英语一分钟: like 和as的用法区别

Like and As

like 和as二者之间的用法区别

Hi! I'm Tim from BBC Learning English, here to tell you about two words we use to say that things are similar.

大家好!我是BBC英语学习频道的蒂姆,今天我们来学习两个用于表示相似的词语。

We use like as a preposition before a noun or pronoun, and it means 'similar to'. He ran like the wind. Not: He ran as the wind.

like作为介词,置于名词或代词前,表示“与...相似”。他跑起来像一阵风。而不是:他跑得像风一样。

We use like, and not as, to compare appearances. This house looks like a castle.

描述外观时,我们用like而不是as。这栋房子像一座城堡。

As can be used as a preposition. It means 'in the role of'. Dan, as your friend I have to say you're not a good singer.

As可以用作介词,表示“作为...”。丹,站在朋友的角度,我不得不说你不是一个好歌手。

We often use as to talk about people's jobs. I work as an actor.

我们通常用as描述人们的职业。我是一名演员。

Be careful using like and as because the meaning can change: As your brother, I'll try to help you means 'I actually am your brother'. Change it to like, and it means 'I'm not your brother but I want to act in a similar way'.

使用like和as时要小心,因为释义会有所不同:作为你兄弟,我会尽力帮你。这句话的意思是“我们确实是兄弟”。如果改用like,这句话表示的意思则是“我不是你真正的兄弟,但我想把你当成兄弟对待。”
