老郑博客的每日一词栏目将在每天更新一个SAT单词并分析其用法,今天更新的单词是ostensible

 

ostensible的英文解释为stated or appearing to be true, but not necessarily so,中文可翻译为表面上的,貌似合理的,貌似真实的,近义词为plausible.但请区分specious这个单词这个单词的含义为superficially plausible, but actually wrong即似是而非。也就是是说这三个单词都有貌似合理之意但ostensible和plausible 并不强调是否真的合理,也许合理,也许不合理,而specious则暗示一定不合理,不真实。

 

SAT填空题重现

The threat of war, far from ___, lay heavily in the air, and the villagers, while _____ going about

their normal activities, were unable to shake off the fear for an impending catastrophe.

A.waning…contentedly

B.escalating…joyfully

C.subsiding….felicitously

D.receding…ostensibly

E.increasing…apparantly

 

答案为D

由lay heavily in the air推断战争并未结束,far from 取反意第一空只能选表消退减少含义的单词,即答案在ACD中,后半句

有while,所以对were unable to shake off the fear for an impending catastrophe这句的含义也只能取反意,即

going about their normal activities这句不能否定,比较选项ostensibly(表面上的)最为合理。

更多例句:

 

His ostensible purpose was charity, his real goal popularity.

Such a view, however plausible, is actually specious and groundless.
