desire despair desperate 差別

despair 絕望desperate 絕望 渴望

desire 渴望

我查出來是這樣 但我比較不懂是desperate為什麼可以當絕望和渴望 這兩種意思差很多..

然後desperate同意字裡為什麼又找不到另外despaire desire

我的意思是

這三個單字究竟是什麼意思.. 然後詞性是什麼 該怎麼使用 怎樣的場合 或造句 之類的... 越清楚越好 謝謝

Update:

.不好意思

那為什麼desperate 在google字典

會有"needing or wanting something very much 非常需要;極想;渴望"的解釋??

是有用在特別的地方還是?

    He made a desperate(hopeless) bid to save his job.

    They made one last desperate(hopeless) attempt to fight their way out.

    他們盡力做最後嘗試,渴望殺出重圍

    分析上列句子,可以得到一個結論;所有的情況都是非常危急的,不是已經失敗,就是生死關頭,很有孤注一擲,大勢已去的情況下之”渴望”

    Desperate 只用在山窮水盡的需求(妄想)
