Image and imagine两词详解


我们先来看单词 image – 这个单词有几个不同的意思,最常用的意思是这个:
Insert
Image… noun… A picture.
 这个词最常用的意思是“图像”。这个“图像”可能是一幅画 a painting, 一张照片 a photograph, 可能是投影仪投射出来的,或电脑生成的图像等等。在现代生活中,我们被大量的图像、影像而包围。
Example
The film showed images of daily life in Mumbai.
 电影 films 是由一系列 images 图像构成的,只不过这些图像是移动的:
Insert
Moving images – or, just 'movies'.
 Moving images 简称就是 movies! 如果你照镜子 if you look in a mirror you see a ‘mirror image’ 镜子里照出来的是“镜像”左边变成了右边,右边变成了左边。Image 最基本的意思是图像,不过这个词的一个延伸意思是 mental picture 精神画面,印象,在头脑中的图像。Listen to this example.
Example
I have an image in my mind about my perfect house.
 我的脑子里有一个我想要的完美的房子的样子。A mental picture 一个在头脑中的形象、概念。Mental picture 也适用于人。
Example
Mark is very worried about his image.
 Mark 对自己的形象、声誉有所顾虑。我们可以说 Mark 这个人 very image-conscious 非常注重形象。除了我们每个人自己的形象外,每个公司、集体、国家都可以 ‘have an image’.
Examples
The fast food company tried to improve its image by offering more healthy food.
Romantic, beautiful, artistic, full of good food and intelligent conversation: that's my image of France!
 以上我们讲了单词 image 的意思和用法。下面我们来看单词 imagine – 首先,大家肯定都知道,单词 imagine 可以表达想象,设想某事。比如说:
Examples
I want you to imagine you were a frog. Just think how high you could jump!
I often imagine what it would be like if I didn't have to work.
 啊,简直不敢想像不用工作的感觉!Imagine 这个词的另外一个意思是认为、猜想、推测。
Examples
I imagine you are under a lot of pressure right now.
 I imagine 在这里的意思是 I believe – 我觉得你现在压力很大。明白了吗?我们可能会说:If I study hard, I imagine that by the end of the year my English will be a lot better. Imagine 这个词的第三个意思是臆想或幻想某事的存在。请看例句:
Example
A: There's a ghost in the cupboard!
B: Don't be silly. You're imagining it.

 You're imagining it – 这不是真的,这只不过是在你的脑海里罢了。再请看一个例句:
Example
When she didn't reply to my message I thought she didn't like me. But I was wrong. She was just busy, and I was imagining things!
 有时候,我们不由自主的 imagine things. 最后我们还在一个固定搭配中使用 imagine 这个词。我们用这个固定搭配来表示惊讶或震惊,尤其出现在当某人的行为使他人感到惊讶时的语境中。请注意看以下的对话,看你是否能看出这个表达惊讶的短语。
Examples
A: She has 15 different pairs of glasses.
B: Imagine that! Wow, she must really love glasses.
Mary took me on a surprise holiday to France. Imagine that! She never does anything romantic.
 Imagine that! 在一件另人惊讶的事情发生后,我们就可以说 imagine that! One whole month without eating chocolate – imagine that!
