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
