    1. feel or have pain, loss 受苦, 受害, 受損失, 患病等

    ***suffer 作此意思解時, 通常當 vi. 使用, 也就是其後接 from, 再接受詞

    He suffered from poverty all his life.


    My father suffers from high blood pressure.


    They suffered a great deal in those days.


    2. experience, undergo (sth unpleasant) 經歷、遭受(不愉快之事)

    suffer defeat(失敗)/adversity(不幸)

    ***suffer 作此意思解時, 通常當 vt. 使用, 其後直接接受詞

    He suffered many humiliations before he became a football star.
