英文高手請進,tend to 跟 prone to的用法

prone to 跟 tend to 還有lead to

先不管中文解釋,只管英文用法

(因為我不想要中文思考模式的回答)

是不是在某方面來說是一樣的意思,是成立的?

譬如說

Power tends to corrupt and absolute power corrupts absolutely.

是不是都可以拿這些來替代?

(+上 is prone to get / leads to)

    你好,

    對我來說這三個語詞意思不同用法也不一樣,不過可以帶換進去你的句子中,如下:

    Power tends to corrupt and absolute power corrupts absolutely.

    ≈ Power is prone to get corrupted and absolute power corrupts absolutely.

    ≈ Power leads to corruption and absolute power corrupts absolutely.

    三個句子and後面都一樣,不過前面我幫你代換進去了。

    如果你不想用中文的思考模式的話,就試試英文的思考模式囉:

    be prone to ≈ be easy to ex. The Midwest is prone to (get) tornado attacks.

    tend to ≈ seem to ex. I tend (seem) to feel tired and annoyed easily when I am hungry.

    lead to ≈ cause ex. Corruption leads to (causes) destruction!

    以上,希望對你有用! ^^
