「雙手」英文最正確或比較正確的說法是?

「雙手」用英文來說,應該...

two hands

double hands

both hands

這三種哪一種?

三種都可以嗎?

或是哪一種說法用法最正確或是比較正確?

這可能有牽涉到一些文法以及口語習慣上的問題,

一般的字典不容易得知答案,

所以想請真正懂英文的人來做回答,

謝謝。

    "two hands" 只意味著兩隻手,他們可能是從另外兩個人或是從一個人的兩隻手,也可能是自己的兩隻手.

    "double hands" 它大致與 "two hands" 相同. 然而, "double hands" 可能意味著兩隻相同的手(左或右).

    "both hands" 指的是自己的兩隻手.

    他們真正的意思要視上下文來判断,尤其是對 "two hands" 與 "double hands"來說.

    If your "雙手" means your own hands. You can use:

    both your hands,

    both hands,

    your two hands.

    But NOT

    your double hands,

    double hands.

    This is why I say "視上下文來判断".

    You cannot use "double hands" for your own hands is because "double hands" means two of the same hand (left or right). You only have one left and one right hands.
