thing&stuff的差別

thing&stuff的差別

查過字典之後只發現以下差別:

-->thing(可數)&stuff(不可數)

但是平時在用時我感覺

-->thing(具體)&stuff(具體&抽象皆可)

而且stuff有中文"東東"的感覺

關於thing&stuff的差別有人知道怎麼解釋比較好嗎?

感恩~~~

    簡單說,thing是比較正式的用法,stuff是比較口語的用法,大部分情況兩個都可以混用。

    例句: 不要碰我的東西

    你可能對老師說: Don't touch my things.

    你可能對死黨這樣說: Don't touch my stuff.

    另外,thing指的是比較清楚而具體的東西。

    例句: 你可以指著桌上的一堆具體的物品說:

    這些是我的東西 -- These are my things.

    但是在另一種情況下,比較不具體不明確的時候,我們傾向用stuff這個字:

    例句:

    這個塑膠袋裡塞滿了軟軟的東西 -- This plastic bag is filled with some soft stuff.
