    如果真的想分辨兩個單字最好查英英辭典

    preposterous

    adjective: completely devoid of wisdom or good sense

    意思是 完全缺乏智彗和基本認知

    而ridiculous也是

    ▸ adjective: completely devoid of wisdom or good sense

    基本上是一樣的

    只是ridiculous較常用

    應該是這樣拼才對:

    ridiculous

    先看 rediculous 如樓上的英文意思 是可笑 不合理

    He is rediculous. 他很可笑

    That's rediculous. 那很不合理

    preposterous 字中 posterior 是之後 而 pre 是之前

    所以有前後顛倒之意 在邏輯上即是不合理

    兩字應可通用 如強調順序上的顛倒則可用此字

    What he said is preposterous. 他說的語無倫次
