Morris大大:

我已經買了柯林斯字典了,謝謝您推薦我韋氏字典

柯林斯已經是中英雙對照的字典,可是還是沒辦法從英文解釋中了解差異阿..........

以下是字典內容

toss: If you toss something somewhere, you throw it there lightly, often in a rather careless way

throw:When you throw an object that you are holding, you move your hand or arm quickly and let go of the obj

大大您看字典對於toss 和throw是使用英文詞彙的方式來解釋,從內容描述上toss和throw是一樣的.......,但是真的是這樣嗎??我又不知道了.......

    rule of thumb

    if you throw something to somewhere with a distance...use throw....remember the scenerio - you throw a ball to someone....

    if you throw something to somewhere with a very short distance or above you ... use toss...remember the scenerio like "toss a coin" ( you do not say throw a coin when you are tossing a coin )

    Another rule of thumb about toss and throw

    when you toss, you do not use lots of strength

    when you throw, you use more strength than toss

    like toss a ball is different from throw a ball

    2014-10-24 01:10:32 補充:

    The association of words would be

    toss <--> short distance

    throw <-->long distance

    toss <-->less strength

    throw<-->lots of strength

    toss <--> flip or turn .. toss and turn

    throw<--> fly or impact...I throw myself to the wall

    toss<-->cause no pain

    throw<-->might cause some or lots of pain

    when you toss down something...it means drink down something quickly

    Toss一般指往上拋的動作,所以它後面總是跟著up;從來沒有聽過toss down的。

    2014-10-24 02:58:42 補充:

    Throw是擲的動作,範圍較廣:上下,遠近都包括。所以後面跟的介繫辭還包括up, down, away, out...等等。因此throw(丟擲)和toss(拋擲)是有相類似之處;然而toss的用法較受限制。
