    Promise

    n. (名詞 noun)

    承諾,諾言

    Give me your promise that you'll never be late again.

    答應我你絕不再遲到了。

    劍橋字典的解釋:

    *promise: when you say that you will certainly do something:

    I'll tidy my things away tonight - and that's a promise!

    I'll try to get back in time, but I'm not making any promises.

    Commitment

    n. (名詞 noun)

    承諾,保證;承擔的義務

    I felt I did not have to make such a commitment to them.

    我覺得我沒有必要對他們作出那樣的承諾。

    劍橋字典的解釋:

    *commitment: when you are willing to give your time and energy to something that you believe in, or a promise or firm decision to do something:

    her commitment to left-wing politics/the cause of feminism/the company

    She is known chiefly for her commitment to nuclear disarmament.

    I'd like to thank the staff for having shown such commitment.

    在中文中我們對這兩個字都可當"承諾"使用,分別在於程度的不同,就是使用上的嚴重性和級數。promise這個字我們會用在比較一般的時候,就是說"我答應你......"。就是我答應你會打電話,我答應你會幾點回家,就是答應一件單純的事件。commitment多數用在你願意用你的時間和付出來達到這個承諾,或是一個很堅決的決定,你一定會這樣做。用在你的信仰和一些你相信的事情上,像是例句中說的女權主義啦,左派政治思想啦,公司,工作等等。

    有的時候多看看英英字典會對了解單字有幫助呢!
