如何區分 “raise” 和 “rise”
- 2020-04-22-

Both raise and rise refer to something going up, but there is a difference.

“Raise” 和 “rise” 作動詞時都有 “上升” 的意思,但它們的用法不同。


1. Raise

Raise needs a direct object - if you raise something you move it up. It has both literal and non-literal meanings and it is a regular verb, so it's past and past participle forms are raised.

動詞 “raise” 后需要加直接賓語,如:“raise something”,意思是 “把某物舉起、抬起、提起”?!癛aise” 既可以指 “抬起具體的事物”,也可以表示 “增加,提高某事物”?!癛aise” 是規則動詞,所以過去式和過去分詞均為 “raised”。


I raise my eyebrows when I'm surprised.

The government plan to raise taxes.

He raised his voice at me in anger, but I forgave him.


2. Rise

Rise does not take a direct object - things rise or go up by themselves. Rise is an irregular verb so the past form is rose and the past participle is risen.

動詞 “rise” 后不需要加直接賓語,如: “something rises”,意思是 “某物自己升起、升高”?!癛ise” 是不規則動詞,它的過去時為 “rose”,過去分詞為 “risen”。


The sun rises at 6a.m.

The water level rises twice a day because of the tide.

The bird rose into the air and flew away.
