worldwide??around the world?

around the world=all over the world

剛剛老師上課時補充了一個生字,worldwide

這個字是遍佈全世界的意思,那麼和around the world以及all over the world

這兩個字意思不就一樣,正確嗎??

    worldwide是指普遍性達到世界那麼寬(happening or existing all over the world),worldwide, all over the world, throughout the world三者的意思接近,都是指普遍性(遍及世界各地)的狀態:Our company employs 1,500 staff worldwide.

    -wide combines with nouns to form adjectives and adverbs which indicate that something eists or happen throughout the place or area that the noun refers to.

    If you say that something happens or existing throughout a place, you mean that it happens or exists in all parts of that place.

    All over a place means that in every part of it.

    around the world有動感,指移動的方式是以圓形的方去繞,延伸的意思就是移動到各處去。If you travel around the world, you move to the other side of it, going to most of its parts.

    You use around to say that something happens in different parts of a place or area.

    Police in South Africa say ten people have died in scattered violence around the country.

    所以這些用法還要看搭配的上下文,有時的意思並不完全相同。
