用法词典

answer
来自古英语adswerian,本意是to swear against起誓证实[某事]以反对[某人],现在无论是回答“问题”还是“查询”都可以用answer)

参考词汇

(1)

answer,respond,reply这组词都有“回答”的含义。

(2)

answer(名词亦为answer)在这三个词中使用范围也最广。它可以用于“回答”别人提出的问题,这是用语言回答。电话铃响了,你去answer the telephone(接电话)这种“回答”即包含语言又包含行动。门铃响了,你去开门(answer the door bell)却只用行动。
In answer to these questions I either nodded or made strange noises.
在回答这些问题的过程中,我要么就点头,要么就发出奇怪的叫声。

(3)

respond(名词为response)用于表示自发的反应,或不反对作出反应。
I struck him a crack and he responded with a kick.
我啪的打了他一下,他踢回了一脚。

(4)

reply(名词亦为reply)和answer虽然常常可以互相使用,但有时并不能通用。如:reply虽然也可以用来表示“以行动回答”,但与answer明显不同:
The officer answered the guard's saltue by a nod.
那位军官点一点头以回答卫兵的敬礼。
The officer replied the guard's salute.
那位军官对卫兵的敬礼回了礼。

(5)

因为reply一词从词源学角度上讲,其含义是fold back使返回羊栏。sheep有教区居民的意思。因此foldback(即reply)也有使返回老家或原处的意思。此外,answer a letter所表示的“回信”,可以只是表示“收到了某人某月某日的来信”,但对来信提出的问题并不一定作了答复,而reply a letter则可以表示回答了来信提出的一切细节。
They would be able to reply to our signals using similar methods.
他们会有能力使用类似的方法来回答我们的信号。
