(1)group 與 divide 都有分類之意 意思差在哪?

group: 以個體為角度作分類, 將所有個體集合成一群一群的類別

divide: 以整體為角度作分類, 將整體細分成一群一群的類別

(2)divide可當及物或不及物動詞, 用法如下:

<及物動詞>

分,劃分[(+into/from)]

The teacher divided our class into four groups.

老師把我們班分成四個小組。

分發;分享[(+between/among/with)]

The children divided up the candy among themselves.

孩子們把糖果分吃了。

分配[(+between)]

【數】除[(+by/into)]

12 divided by 4 equals 3.

十二除以四等於三。

使對立,分裂

We shall not let such a small matter divide us.

我們決不會讓這麼一個小問題分裂我們。

使分開,使隔開[(+from)]

A wall divides our garden from theirs.

一道牆把我們的花園和他們的隔開。<不及物動詞>

分開

We divided into two groups.

我們分成兩組。

分裂;意見分歧

The Board of Directors divided on the new project.

董事會對這個新計劃意見分歧。

If you divide something among people or things, you separate it into several parts or quantities which you distribute to the people or things.

When people or things are divided or divide into smaller groups or parts, they become separated into smaller parts.

上述兩句的divide屬及物動詞的用法(第二句的第二個用法是不及物)

If a number of things or people are grouped together or group together, they are together in one place or within one organization or system.

所以divide的原意是[分開],而group是[合在一起].兩個字是不太一樣的.應看英英字典才能真正明白字義.
