stationery 和 stationary 有什麼不同?

分類: 相似字比較

這兩個字乍看之下很像

看出來了嗎?兩者只差一個字母

倒數第三個字母,一個是e,一個是a

但兩者發音相同,都唸作 [ˋsteʃənɛri]

左邊的stationery在生活中較常用,是「文具」的意思,是集合名詞不可數

比如stationery store是文具店

(但國外的文具店較專業,主要是賣紙筆類的東西,不像我們很多傳統「書店」或文具店也兼賣參考書和小玩具)

右邉的stationary則是形容詞「靜止不動的」

比如一台stationary bicycle就是健身用、在原地不會往前跑的腳踏車

我們來造些句:

He went to a stationery store and bought a fountain pen.
(他去文具店買了一枝鋼筆。)

Did you put in a stationery request? I need some paper clips.
(你呈交了文具的需求單嗎?我需要一些迴紋針。)

I only use the stationary bicycle at the gym.
(我在健身房只踩腳踏車。)

There is a stationary front coming.
(有個滯留鋒面正朝我們接近。)
