關於worth和worthy的用法與分辨?

我在網路字典查到 :

worthy adj. 值得的

worth adj. 值得

不知道這兩個用法是否有差異?

其他單字如果有類似情形也適用它們的用法嗎?

如果能附上完整例句更佳,

謝謝!

    學問常常是知其然而不知其所以然,謝謝你讓我有這機會回頭去複習這兩個單字,

    形容詞有三種分法,綜整如下:

    (1)人的值得用worthy

    She is worthy to be praised.他值得被讚揚。

    You are not worthy to do so.你不值得這樣做。

    (2)事物的值得用woth(後接名詞、動名詞)或worthy of,如:

    The book is worth reading. = worthy of reading.

    The exhibition is worth a visit. = worthy of a visit.

    His behavior is worthy of praise. = worth being praised.

    (3)東西價值的用worth 金錢,或worthy,如:

    The car is worth $500.

    a worthy car (有價值的車,但a worthy man是可敬的人)

    The car is not worthy.(這車不值錢)
