(本系列文章例句均为原创,无引用)

 

一、这方面的单词比较多,最常用的是suitable 、appropriate 、proper。

二、suitable 是一般“合适的”意思,例如,This hat is suitable for me.(这顶帽子对我合适。)

proper 蕴含“正确与否”,例如:To take this way is a proper choice. (走这条道路是一个合适的选择。)

appropriate 蕴含“调整使之合适”,例如:To set the temperature at 25°C is appropriate. (把温度设置为25度是合适的。)

suitable 可以替代proper和appropriate,但合适对象要指明,例如:To take this way is a suitable choice for the kids.(走这条路对这些孩子是合适的。)To set the temperature at 25°C is suitable for kids.

proper和appropriate 有时可以互相替代,但意义侧重点会变化。例如:25°C is a proper setting. 意味着正确的设置(可能是国家规定)。而 To take this way is an appropriate choice.与To take this way is a proper choice 有语气上的区别,前者应该比较委婉些。但当表达原则观点的时候最好不要用appropriate 替代proper,例如:We suppose that using one more server is a proper solution.(我们认为多加一个服务器是合适的解决方案。)此处用appropriate 替代proper的话观点就不鲜明了。

三、用法模版

(1)它们都可修饰名词,而且proper 只用来修饰名词。

(2)sth. is suitable for sth. 例句略。

sth. is suitable to do sth. 例如:The new device is suitable to wear.(新设置适于穿戴。)

(3)It is appropriate that……例如:It is appropriate that you add more explanation in your paper.(你在文中多加点说明是合适的)

It is appropriate to do sth. 例如:It is appropriate to take more money with you.(你多带点钱合适。)

sth. is appropriate for (to) sth.例如:A mobile device with a large screen is appropriate for elderly people.(大屏幕移动设备对老年人合适。)
