用法词典

means

参考词汇

(1)

means,instrument,instrumentality,agent,agency,medium,vehicle这组词都可以表示借以成就某事或达到某目的人或物。

(2)

means (单复数同形)可以指人或物,其含义为“手段”或“工具”;这个词不仅用于具体的东西,也可以用于抽象的意念。如:means of production 生产资料,means of living 生活资料
The next step would be to develop means for sending television pictures.
下一步将要发展送出电视图象的手段。
Knowledge began to increase as soon as the thoughts of one individual could be communicated to another by means of speech.
一旦一个人的思想能够借助于语言传递给另一个人,知识便开始增长了。
They regarded the labouring class as a mere means to the maintenance of the rest.
他们把劳动阶级看作一种养活其他阶级的纯粹的工具。

(3)

instrument 主要用于表示按别人的意志行事的人,在用于表示事物时,其含义由 musical instrument (乐器)引伸而来,因此 instrument 在表示“工具”或“仪器”时的内涵是操作灵敏,一触即应
But can we blame those who looked and failed to see what Galileo saw, if we remember that to use a telescope at the limit of its powers calls for long experience and intimate familiarity with one's instrument?
然而, 如果我记起这样一个事实:使用一架倍数有限的望远镜需要长期的经验和对仪器的完全熟悉,我们难道能够责怪那些作过观察但没有看见迦利略所看见的东西的人吗?
He was made the instrument of another's crime.
他被迫成了另一个犯罪的工具了。
We have an old musical instrument.
我们有一件老式的乐器。

(4)

instrumentality 可以与means换用,但不能与 instrument 换用,因为这个词的含义是对手段的“有效利用”。如:by(或 through) the instrumentality (or means) of (借助于…)
Without the instrumentality of a free press liberty could not be preserved.
如果不能有效地利用新闻自由,就无法维护自由。

(5)

agent 的原义是“起作用的人”或“办事的人”,现在的常用含义是“代理人”,即区别于筹划人或行使意志者
Many firms, for instance, have great difficulty in obtaining technical or scientific books from libraries because they are unwilling to have their names entered as having taken out such and such a book for fear the agents of other firms should beable to trace the kind of research they are likely to be undertaking.
例如,许多公司在向图书馆借技术或科学书籍时非常难办,因为这些公司不愿让自己的字号作为借出这种那种图书者登记入册,生怕其他公司的情报人员可能探索出他们有可能在进行的科研种类。

(6)

agency 不能与agent换用,因为这个词的含义指的是agent的行为,他的工作,即“经办”。如:by(或through)the agency of (借助于…)。

(7)

agency 与 instrumentality 的区别在于:agency 的内涵是“引起某结果的原因”,即“媒介”。如:某些疾病的传播是借助昆虫进行的(through the agency of insects)
This disease is spread through the agency of insects.
这种疾病是通过昆虫媒介传播的。

(8)

medium 的含义是“介质”,没有这种“介质”便达不到一定的目的
It (指 swallow) tires not nor does it boast of its power; but belongs to the air, travelling it may be six thousand miles to and from its northern nesting home feeding its flown young as it flies and slipping through a medium that seems to help itspassage even when the wind is adverse.
它不知疲劳,也不夸耀自己的飞翔能力,然而它在空中十分自如,可以一直飞行6,000英里。飞向北方的筑有鸟巢的家乡以及从那里飞走,在飞行的过程中还要喂养已出窠的雏燕,甚至在顶风的时候也能够不费劲地穿过那似乎有助它迁栖的气流。

(9)

vehicle 所表示的“媒介物”主要指借以传递意欲流露的思想、感情等手段。这个词的这一含义与“运输车辆”这一含义有关
Art may be used as a vehicle for propaganda.
艺术可以用作为宣传的媒介。
Language is a vehicle of human thought.
语言是人类表达思想的媒介。
