    1. 請問 aristocrat 和nobleman 有什麼區別?

    Aristocrat– A member of a ruling class or of the nobility 或是 A person having the tastes, manners, or other characteristics of thearistocracy – 比較常用在西方文學裡用來表示貴族或是持貴族觀點的人、 主張貴族統治者、具貴族氣派的人。除了貴族的涵義以外, 這個字也代表在群體中的佼佼者:One considered the best of its kind。

    Nobleman- A man of noble rank – 也是貴族的意思,但是特別強調在政治社會等持有某種頭銜或高尚的 地位;亦或是聲望地位崇高的家族裡的繼承人。也有形容出生高貴或 是在貴族家族中出身的人:

    a) Distinguished by rank or title

    b) Someone of, belonging to, or constituting a hereditary class that hasspecial social or political status in a country or state; of or pertaining tothe aristocracy.

    c) Someone of noble birth

    當然也可以向寶寶講的形容一個高貴的人(但此人不一定是貴族)。

    2. aristocrat 單只個人nobleman 是指統稱嗎?

    兩者皆是指單人。

    3. aristocratic 和noble 含意是一樣的嗎???

    我想你從第一提的解釋就可以看到,aristocratic 和noble 雖然都有貴族的涵義,但是文學上的理解還是有差。noble 與 nobleman 叫類似;而 aristocratic 跟 blue-blooded, elite, highborn 或upper-class 比較類似。

    我記得nobleman 是指高貴的人

    aristocratic 是貴族

    而aristocratic 和noble是不一樣的

    一個是指貴族另一個是高貴的

    我們口語上說貴族通常是用aristocratic 喔
