    different from 一定保險 --正式 -- 尤其書寫,要用 from 最好

    different than 口語常用。嚴格的文法老師會皺眉頭。

    different to 只有英國比較常用。

    詳細文章如下:

    "Different from" is the construction that no one will object to."Different to" isfairly common informally in the U.K., but rare in the U.S. "Different than" is sometimes usedto avoid the cumbersome "different from that which", etc. (e.g.,"a very different Pamela than I used to leave all company and pleasurefor" – Samuel Richardson). Some U.S. speakers use"different than" exclusively.Some people have insisted on"different from" on the grounds that "from" is requiredafter "to differ". But Fowler points out that thereare many other adjectives that do not conform to the construction of theirparent verbs (e.g., "accords with", but "according to";"derogates from", but "derogatory to").

    The Collins Cobuild Bank of English showschoice of prepositionafter "different"to be distributed as follows: "from" "to" "than" ----- ---- ------U.K. writing 87.6 10.8 1.5U.K. speech 68.8 27.3 3.9U.S. writing 92.7 0.3 7.0U.S. speech 69.3 0.6 30.1
