--急--tall 與 high 的比較 ((22點))

tall 與 high 是否有差呢..

像是我們要問別人 How tall are you ? 你有多高?

那tall 是否可以用來描述"建築物"?

例如: Taipei is the tallest building in Taiwan.

如果上述 都用 high 來取代 tall 算是 用詞錯誤嗎??

另外 height

是否 how tall are you? = how much is your height?

謝謝哦^^!!

Update:

Taipei 101 ....

    當描述某人或某物的高度時會用形容詞 tall,

    而形容某物從底部到頂端有一段長距離會用high。

    High 不能用來形容人、動物或植物,但可以用來形容建築物。

    tall 和 high 也都可當副詞使用。

    舉例:

    That is a very high shelf. I don't think I can reach it.

    那個架子很高,我伸手搆不到。

    This is a very tall cabinet.

    這是一個很高的櫃子。

    Taipei 101 is over one hundred stories tall.

    台北 101 超過一百層樓高。

    That building is 1500 meters high.

    那棟建築物有一千五百公尺高。

    Ellen is very interested in high fashion.

    艾倫對最流行的時尚很有興趣。

    That is a very tall order. I'm not sure if I can do it!

    那是一個高難度的的指示,我不確定是否能做到。

    希望能幫助到你噢~~

    是錯誤的,hight不是高度的意思喔。

    hight通常使用在

    例如棒球比賽中

    投球高度計算等等

    hight:~~ time:~~

    完整的tall 與 high 的比較,看這裡

  • 8 years ago

    tall : 人或物體的高度. ~How tall are you ? = What is your height? ~ How tall is Mount Everst? ~ tall pine trees/ a tall glass vase

    high: 物件從地面起算的高度(不用來形容人或動植物的高度)~ The tower is high.

    PS: The building is tall.(通常用在與另一作比較時,看起來的結果) The building is high. (強調從底部起算的高度)

    master Princess' saying right!

    "Tall" refers to the "length", has nothing to do with ground.

    "high" refers to the "elevation" from the ground.

    saying right ==> saying is right.

    "High" has another meaning:

    (1)it relates to the emotional state of a person.

    (2)It could also relate to the body temperature of the person as when we say that a person has a high fever.

    (3)A person is said to be high on alcohol or any other drug.
