同义词辨析

  • 以下词都有“平的,平坦的”的意思,区别是:
  • even 通常指平面上的各点或一条直线的各点处在同一平面或直线上。

    flat 指光滑平整的表面,但不一定是水平的。

    level 强调没有高低之处,且在同一水平面,可引申指才能相等或与相邻某物平行。

    smooth 侧重指表面十分平滑,无任何粗糙的感觉。引申作圆滑解。

even (adj.)

Old English efen "level," also "equal, like; calm, harmonious; equally; quite, fully; namely," from Proto-Germanic *ebna- (source also of Old Saxon eban, Old Frisian even "level, plain, smooth," Dutch even, Old High German eban, German eben, Old Norse jafn, Danish jævn, Gothic ibns). The adverb is Old English efne "exactly, just, likewise." Modern adverbial sense (introducing an extreme case of something more generally implied) seems to have arisen 16c. from use of the word to emphasize identity ("Who, me?" "Even you").

Etymologists are uncertain whether the original sense was "level" or "alike." Used extensively in Old English compounds, with a sense of "fellow, co-" (as in efeneald "of the same age;" Middle English even-sucker "foster-brother"). Of numbers, from 1550s. Sense of "on an equal footing" is from 1630s. Rhyming reduplication phrase even steven is attested from 1866; even break (n.) first recorded 1907. Even-tempered from 1712. To get even with "retaliate upon" is attested by 1833.

even (v.)

Old English efnan "to make even, to make level; liken, compare" (see even (adj.)). Intransitive sense of "become even" is attested from early 13c. Related: Evened; evening.

even (n.)

"end of the day," Old English æfen, Mercian efen, Northumbrian efern (see eve (n.)).
