用法
Anxious has a long history of use roughly as a synonym for eager, but many would prefer that the distinction between the two words be maintained and that anxious be used only when its subject is worried or uneasy about the anticipated event. In the traditional view, one may say We are anxious to see the strike settled soon but not We are anxious to see the new show of British sculpture at the museum. Fifty-two percent of the Usage Panel rejects anxious in the latter sentence. But general adoption of anxious to mean “eager” is understandable, at least in colloquial discourse, since it provides a means of adding emotional urgency to an assertion, in its implication that the subject's desire for a certain outcome is so strong that frustration of that desire will lead to unhappiness. Note, in this connection, the analogous use of sentences such as I'm dying to see your new baby in informal style.
Anxious 在很长一段时间以来,一直大致作为 eager 的同义词来用, 但很多人喜欢保留这两个词之间的区别,即只有当主体对预测事件忧虑不安时才用anxious 。 在传统观点看来,可以说我们渴望看到罢工问题很快解决 , 但不能说我们渴望在博物馆里见到新的英国雕塑展览。 52%的用法使用小组成员反对anxious 在后一个句子中的用法。 但通常用anxious 来表示“eager”是可以理解的, 至少在口语中是这样,既然它加强了某一主张在感情上的迫切性,它隐喻的一层意思就是,主体对某一特定结果的愿望是如此强烈,以至于这种欲望受挫就会导致不愉快。注意与此有关的类似句子如我很渴望见到你们新出生的孩子 也是非正式的
