    1. respond

    (1)回答; 回應(vt, vi.)

    To every question, he responded "I don't know."

    Please repond to my letter. 請回信.

    (2)反應; 回應 (vi.) to say or do something as a reaction to something that has been said or done; reply

    *respond to...對...表示回應

    How did she respond to the news?她對這個消息有何反應?

    He responded by marching off and slamming the door behind him.他的反應是一走了之並重甩地關上門.

    (3)<病人/疾病 + respond to 治療/藥物>

    It remains to be seen whether the cancer will respond to treatment.癌細胞是否會對於治療是否有反應(治療是否有效), 猶待觀察.

    2. reply

    (1)回答; 回覆(vt. vi.)answer

    "Where are you going?" I asked. "Home, " he replied.我問: "你要去哪裡?" 他回答: "家裡."

    I try to reply to letters the day I receive them.我試著在收到信當天回信.

    (2)(對他人的行為予以)回應; 反應; (以行動)回答 (vi) to react to an action by someone else; make answer in action.

    She replied to the threats by going to the police.她對這些威脅的回應是, 尋求警方的協助

    to reply to the enemy's attack 回擊敵人

    由以上1.(1)(2), 2.(1)(2)可知

    reply(+ to...)和respond(+ to...) 都可指"回答", "對...作出反應或回覆 "

    兩者意思可相通.

    略不同處(-->根據文馨英漢辭典):

    reply:稍正式的用字(比answer稍正式, 用於較正式的文體中, 表示經過較仔細考慮後的答覆)

    respond:最正式的用字(對他人的期望或訴苦作適當的反應)

    兩者是用法的不同

    reply_可當及物或不及物動詞!

    不過respond只能當作不及物動詞~!!
