boast用法

我在webster查到boast有及物及不及物的用法。

及物時的解釋是to talk proudly about deeds, abilities

不及物時的解釋是to boast about

可是二個解釋不是都一樣嗎?

請問各位專家boast及物和不及物的使用時機為何呢?為什麼呢?謝謝!

    boast可以是及物也可以是不及物

    不及物時用到當要再補述吹噓的內容時

    e.g.

    1.to boast about:He's boasting about how much money he has made.

    2.to boast of:The company is inclined to boast of its success.

    另使用連接詞that

    George boasted that his son was a genius.
