tell的用法

tell这个词我想大家都知道,是告诉的意思,但是大家知道tell这个词在口语中,除了告诉还有其他的用法吗?

今天我就跟你们说说tell的用法吧!

阿甘在电影中说的一句话:
There’s an awful lot you can tell about a person by their shoes.
看人们脚上穿的鞋子就能判定很多事情。

这里的tell不是告诉的意思,是指“判断”、“断定”、“辨别”,类似的用法如下:
1. Yes, I did have plastic surgery. How can you tell?
是的,我确实做过美容手术,你怎么看出来的?
2.And then in the desert, when the sun comes up, I couldn’t tell where heaven stopped and the earth began.
在沙漠里的时候,太阳升起来,我看不出天地的分界。
3. Even though it was so dark I could still tell it was you.
尽管很黑,我仍然辨认得出你来。
4. tell (when/how) It’s hard to tell when we can finish the work.
我们什么时候能完成工作还很难说。
5. tell (by/from) You can tell by the way it walks that the cat has been injured.
看那只猫走路的姿势就知道它受伤了。

tell,看似简单,其实不简单,学了tell的用法之后,是不是觉得你的语言思维又更灵活了呢?
