    drift vs. float幾乎相通

    embark on vs. engage in 的意思不太一樣

    embark 是指去做一件新計畫或者是活動,通常是困難的或花時間的事

    engage in 則是指參與某種特定活動,通常是與別人競爭或交談的有關的

    break down vs. malfunction

    break down 是與機械工具有關的

    malfunction 的用途比較廣

    strand vs. trap vs. get into trouble

    strand 是指處於某種困境中

    trap 則是有落入圈套(或困境)(通常使用被動語氣)

    get into trouble 也是指處於某種困境,問題(主動語氣)

    youngster vs. teenager vs. the young vs. the teen

    youngster 指小孩或年輕人

    the young 也有指小孩,但也表示年輕成人

    teenager 有特定表示13-19歲之間的年輕人

    teen = teenager

    encounter vs. run into

    encounter 是可以抽象的(困難等)或實際的(邂逅,相遇)

    run into 則是實際面的

    two other bears 和 other two bears 差別在

    前者是大於二隻的 = two of other bears

    後者則是只有兩隻
