「傳染」的英文是什麼?

「傳染」的英文是什麼?

Yahoo字典中,epidemic, contagious和infectious這三個英文字都解作「傳染的」。

它們的用法有無分別?最好舉些例子。

謝謝!

    先講這三個都是形容詞,但epidemic也是名詞

    contagious是指經接觸性傳染,如:

    The infection is highly contagious, so don't let anyone else use your towel.

    而infectious是指:可以播染的(沒有指定的途徑),如:

    Flu is highly infectious.

    而epidemic,是指:流行病;有廣泛傳染性的(指一種疾病,同時傳染許多人),如:

    Over 500 people died during last year's flu epidemic

    正確D講,

    「contagious」:接觸傳染

    「epidemic」:傳染病

    「infectious」:傳染性的

    而「傳染」真正既English應該係:infect

    一般都是 "infect" 的

    "infect"是 verb

    "infection"是 noun,

    而 "infectious"應該是 adj.
