    street 和 road 的差別,就是中文 「街」 和 「路」 的差別。

    「街」 是兩旁有房子,有商店的,如 「街市」、「街坊」。 street 最早的意義就是這種城市中,兩旁有房子、有商店的街道。

    「路」 是人走出來的,連結兩個地點的。 road 就是連接兩個地點的 「路」。

    隨著都市發展,現在都市街道名,road 也有、street 也有,沒多大分別。

    但 「鄉村小路」 英語叫做 country road, 不是 country street。 而城市裡街道上的電車叫做 street car,不叫做 road car。 從這裡還是可以看出 street 和 road 的分別的。

    美國大小城鎮,很多都有一條街名叫 main street。 一聽就知道是早期是那個城鎮最繁華的主要街道。

    I wonder, who made the road in "All roads lead to Rome"?

    If so, it can be smelly!

    Another way to tell:

    Streets are man-made

    Roads are cow-made - migrating animals defined the roads between water holes while human hunters followed.

    Holy cows made them for sure.

    英語獅答得好,讓我把答案搬到意見欄。

    Street 譯作「街」、Road 譯作「道」。

    Road 是連接兩個地方的通道,可以是荒漠的大道。

    Street 是城市中建設好的通路,通常可以見到有建築物在旁。

    如果你搜尋 road 和 street 的圖片,也可以看到這個分別。

    What is the difference between a road and a street?

    A road usually runs between two more distant points, such as between two towns. A street is described as being a paved road or highway - in a city, town, or village, especially one lined with houses, shops, or other buildings.

    2014-03-10 23:45:23 補充:

    The implication is that if a street does not have these things, it will probably be called a road. When a town expands, sometimes what was formerly a road will become a street. The word road is the more general term, though, and can be applied to a street. Street is the narrower term.

    I like the word "cow-made".
