来自中古英语floc<古英语flocc群

参考词汇

(1)

flock,herd,shoal,school,swarm这组同义词的一般含义是“群”。

(2)

flock用于表示同类的鸟群,或动物群,特别是羊群;在用于表示人群时,指人数众多的人群,特别见于与宗教意义有关的文字或语言中。在作人群解时,flock的内涵是受到爱护或指导。“牧师”(pastor)实际上是牧羊人,而这里的“羊”指教徒或芸芸众生。如:
Insects would make it impossible for us to live in the world; they would devour all our crops and kill our flocks and herds, if it were not for the protection we get from insect-eating animals.
昆虫会使我们无法在这个世界上生存:如果不是由于食虫动物的保

(3)

注:flock可以用作不及物动词,意思是同类的鸟类聚集在一块儿或在一起飞。如:Birds of a weather flock together. 物以类聚,人以群分。(谚语)
Vistors came in flocks to see the new bridge.
参观者成群结队地来观看这座新桥。

(4)

herd 表示生有角质蹄子的动物,如牛或鲸鱼等的“群”
There we saw herds of cows grazing on the pasture.
我们在那里看到一群群的牛在草地上吃草。

(5)

注:herd在表示人群时,指普通人
He had no opinions of his own but simply follow the herd.
他从无主见,只是人云亦云。

(6)

shoal指在一块游动着的鱼“群”。swarm在表示人“群”时,有“蜂拥”在一起的意义

(7)

shoal在表示人“群”时的内涵是数目极多。school与shoal常常可以换用
A shoal of fish will do this.
鱼群也会反射声音的。
In the contrary school the duck is supreme.
在相反的一类鸟中,以野鸭为最。

(8)

但school除了用于鱼之外,也可用于其它动物,但不太用于表示人“群”然而在用于人时,school指的不是“群”而是“派”、“类”等。
a man of the old school
守旧派

(9)

swarm指在一起生活的昆虫的“群”
A swarm of bees are following the queen-bee to find a suitable place to establish a new home.
一群蜜蜂跟着蜂王去寻找个合适的地方建立新家。
On June the first there were swarms of children playing in the park.
6月1日那一天,这个公园里有一群群的孩子玩耍。

(10)

注:swarm在用作动词时意思是“拥”
I even went out at midnight with a torch and noted with satisfation (and surprise) that the ants were still swarming around the sticky tape without being able to do anything about it.
我甚至半夜里拿着手电筒出去,而且满意地(同时也惊奇地)看到,那些蚂蚁

(11)

注:除上述若干词外,colony也常用来表示“群”,主要表示聚集或活动在一起的同类动物,有时亦用于同类的植物
They were visited by a large colony of ants which obtained a sort of honey from them.
它们(指蚜虫)受到了一大群蚂蚁的拜访,因为蚂蚁向蚜虫索取一种蜜。
