offer 和 supply 有什麼不同?

總覺得這兩個字的意思好相像

可是查字典 卻又不是同意字

有英文高手能幫我解惑嗎?

    offer, supply都有“供給,裝備”之意。

    offer: 常用詞,意為" 提出,提供,呈現",表示向別人提供可接受也可拒絕的某物,如幫助,服務或物品,這可能是對方要求也可能是自己主動提出的。

    offer to help sb. 表示願意幫助某人;offer sb. sth./ offer sth. to sb.提供某人某物。

    例如:

    The river would offer power production estimated at 500,000 kilowatts if a dam were constructed.

    如果築起水壩,這條河就能提供大約50萬千瓦的電力。

    An international corporation offered him a well-paid job, which he refused politely, since taking it would involve traveling abroad most of the time.

    一家跨國公司向他許諾一份待遇優厚的工作,而他婉言謝絕了,因為接受那項工作就意味著大多數時間都得在國外出差。

    supply: "供給,補充,彌補",著重表示替換或不足所需之物以及彌補缺陷,滿足要求的意思,還可作名詞,意為“供給(量),物資,存貨”。

    常用短語:supply the market with new commodities 向市場供應新產品;supply a want 彌補不足;supply...for把……供給。

    The book would be incomplete without such discussions as I have tried to supply.

    如果沒有我努力提供的這樣一些論述,這本書就會顯得不完整。

    What I admire most in my life is doctors and others supplying medical care to assistance recipients.

    我一生中最敬佩的是那些向受援者提供醫療護理的醫生和其他人。

    offer 的意思是提供;提出(供接受或拒絕)例句一:This agreement does not offer much hope of a lasting peace.(這一項協議並沒有給持久和平帶來多大的希望.)例句二:she offered to drive me to the station.(她表示願意開車送我去車站.)

    supply 是提供物品的意思.例句一:The government supplies free books to school.(政府免費給學校供應書籍.) 例句二:The firm that used to supply us has gone out of business.(過去給我們供貨的那家公司已經停業了.)

    supply是指經常性的供應, 因此必定是長時期的、數量充足的供應,而且不論供需雙方都是可以互相預知的

    offer則只是單一事件,而且常帶有偶然的、不可預期的意味
