role 與character的用法有何不同

role 與 character 皆為角色,英文的用法有何不同?

已更新項目:

Jean auditioned for a ____ in the play, but she didn't get it. 為什麼答案是role,不能用character?

2 個已更新項目:

這是TOEIC第5部分的考古題,選項中同時有role與character,查了字典,也覺得此兩字在意義上,以及在句義上,並無不同。

    個人比較偏向Artie的說法,role是指職業、身分;character是指演出的角色。所以用爭取一個role跟戲裡的一個characte來分別會r比較清楚。

    你的原題目有同時出現role和character讓你選嗎?

    我幫你翻過字典和查過國外的Dictionary.com

    這二個字並沒差別

    如果是填空題,答案給 role可能是該範圍的新單字是role而非character,並不表示不可以用character喔!

    如果真的是選擇題這樣的話,可能要請你提供多一點前後文了

    I play the leading role in this movie.

    role....是演員的意思(不分男女)

    My character in that movie is a farmer.

    character......是角色的意思

    I am the best actor

    actor...男演員

    I am the best actress

    actress...女演員

    在中文裡我們常把"角色"跟"演員"當成同樣意思,實際上意思是不太一樣的.Jean auditioned for a ____ in the play是說Jean去試音爭取演出的機會

    那他爭取的是當"演員"的機會,不是直接爭取某個角色的機會.

    就像我們會說"我是好演員",但你不會說"我是好角色"

    會說"我的角色是農夫",但你不會說"我的演員是農夫"

    role...比較是職業或是下面大大說的地位身分

    character是屬於形象的用法
