继承用法

actability
n.(名词)

actable
adj.(形容词)

用法
The words act and action both mean “a deed” and “the process of doing.” However, other senses of act, such as “a decision made by a legislative body” and of action, such as “habitual or vigorous activity” show that act tends to refer to a deed while action tends to refer to the process of doing. The demands of meaning or idiom will often require one word or the other: class act and class action, for example, are not interchangeable. In cases where either can be used, either is acceptable: my act (or action ) was premature.
act 及 action 两者都表示“行为”和“行动的过程”。 然而,act 的其他释义,如“立法机关所做的决定”及 action 的其他释义, 如“惯常的或充满活力的活动”表明act 偏重于指行动而 action 偏重于指行动的过程。 由于意义和习语的需求,通常只能用其中的一个单词,如:class act(出类拔萃的人) 和 class action(共同起诉) 不能互换。 在二者皆可的情况下,二者可通用:我的行为 (或 行动 )太草率

参考词汇
act     action    
与deed 均含有“动作或行为"的意思。

(1)

act 强调动作的结果, 指单一的和个人的动作, 适用于个人力量可以完成的事, 一般属暂时性的, 如:
It is an act of kindness to help a blind man across the street.
帮助盲人过街是慈善的行为。

(2)

action 强调动作的方式和历程, 而且指比较复杂的动作, 需要较长时间才能完成的事, 如:
While a ship is in distress, rescuing passengers from danger is a heroic action.
当船遇险时, 营救乘客脱离危险是一种英勇的行为。

(3)

还应注意在机械和物理用语中, 不能用 act, 要用action, 如:
the action of heat
热的作用;

(4)

反之, 在an act of kindness 一语中, 若改为 an action of kindness也是错误的。deed 如同 act, 强调行为的结果和单一性, 但deed 指较为庄重的、显著的、伟大的和感人的行为, 而且含有永久性, 如:
He is a good leader in deed as well as in name.
他是一位名副其实的好领袖。
