BBC英语一分钟: History和Story的用法区别

History vs Story

 History和Story的用法讲解

Hi, I’m Dan from BBC Learning English and today I’m going to tell you the difference between those two confusing words history and story.

嗨,我是BBC英语学习的丹,今天我们来学习两个容易混淆的词语:history 和 story.

So, both words are used for a description of events. So that makes them the same, right? WRONG! They are not the same.

这两个词都用于对事件的描述,所以二者是相同的,对吧?错了!这两个词并不相同。

History is the description or study of past events based on fact, often to understand their consequences. 'Christopher Columbus arrived in America in 1492.'

history用于表示过去发生的真实的事,通常为了学习由此带来的经验教训。“克里斯托弗哥伦比亚1492年来到美洲。”

A story is the description of a series of real or imagined events, often to entertain people. 'After arriving in America in 1492, Columbus and his crew were attacked by a giant man-eating T-Rex dinosaur!' That didn’t happen! It’s just a story.

story表示的是一系列真实或臆想的事件,通常用于娱乐。“哥伦比亚1492年到达美洲之后,他和他的船员们遭到了一个巨人的攻击——吃人的霸王龙!”这并不是真事!只是个故事罢了。

So… history is the description of past events based on fact and stories are descriptions of real or imagined events, often to entertain.

所以...history用于表示过去发生的真实的事,而story表示的是一系列真实或臆想的事件,通常出于娱乐目的。
