appropriate 和 misappropriate?

如題! 兩個英文字似乎都有盜用、挪用的意思,

有什麼細節上的差異嗎? 還是同義字呢?

煩請附上例句,感謝~

    Something that is appropriate is suitable or acceptable for a particular situation.(形容詞)

    Dress neatly and attractively in an outfit appropriate to the job.

    If someone appropriates something which does not belong to the, they take it, usually without the right to do do.(動詞)

    The land was simply appropriated by the rulers.

    If someone misappropriates money which does not belong to them, they take it without permission and use it for their own purpose.

    I took no money for personal use and have no misappropriated any funds whatsoever.

    A total of $500 million is alleged to have been misappropriated.

    misappropriate只有「動詞」的用法,但appropriate除了「動詞」,還可當「形容詞用」。在當動詞用時,兩個字的用法和意思都相同。

    typo: ... and have not misappropriated any funds whatsoever.

    not誤打成no

    抱歉。
