    1) rough 和 coarse 都可以解「粗糙的」

    粗糙的;表面不平的

    Her hands were rough with work.

    她的雙手因工作而變得粗糙。

    The rough road made the car vibrate.

    崎嶇不平的道路使車顛簸得很厲害。

    ..................................................................................................................

    My clothes were made of coarse cloth.

    我的衣服是用粗布製成的。

    rough = having an uneven surface e.g.

    Her hands were rough from hard work.

    the rough terrain at the base of the mountains.

    We were bumping over the rough ground.

    coarse

    = having a rough surface that feels slightly hard [= rough; ≠ smooth]: e.g. a jacket of coarse wool

    = consisting of threads or parts that are thick or large [≠ fine]:

    e.g. The coarse sand was hot and rough under her feet.

    根據Longman字典的解釋, rough 係指皮膚(例如: 手) 粗糙, 或者路面崎嶇不平。而 coarse 係指衣服物料的粗糙, 或者指因為包含粗粒狀的物質而令人感覺粗糙, 例如粗沙粒。如果無確實的資料顯示就切勿當兩個在這意思上是完全一樣, 而交換使用。跟所提供的例子般使用就最保險啦!

    2) rough 和 coarse 亦可以解作「粗俗, 粗鲁」

    They complained rough handling by the police.

    他們抱怨受到警察粗野的對待。

    粗俗的,粗魯的;猥褻的

    Don't use such coarse language.

    不要用這種粗俗的語言。

    ..................................................................................................................

    using force, anger, or violence [≠ gentle]:

    Rugby is a very rough sport. 粗鲁的運動

    Don't be too rough - she's only little. 別對她太粗魯

    Paul gave her a rough shake. 握手時太粗魯

    http://www.ldoceonline.com/dictionary/coarse

    talking in a rude and offensive way, especially about sex [= crude]: e.g. coarse jokes

    .................................................................................................................

    rough 係指行為上以粗魯態度對待人, 但 coarse係特別指言語上粗魯, 對人不禮貌。

    rough仲有其他意思:
