When 'tell' doesn't mean 'tell'

當tell的意思不是“告訴”時

Hi, everyone! Think of tell and you think of speaking, but tell doesn't always mean tell. Let me tell you why... OK that time I meant speaking.

嗨,大家好!一想到“說”,你就會想到“說”,但“說”並不總是“說”的意思。讓我來告訴你為什麽……我這裏的tell就是說的意思

Not only does the verb tell mean 'say something to someone', it also has a meaning similar to 'know', 'recognise', 'understand', or 'perceive'.

動詞tell不僅表示“對某人說某事”,它還有類似“知道”、“認識”、“理解”或“感知”的意思。

We often use it in combination with the verb 'can' to make can tell for the present and 'could tell' for the past.

我們經常把它和動詞can結合在一起來表示現在的can tell和過去的could tell。

I can tell he's from France. He has an accent!

我看得出他來自法國。他有口音!

Or: We could tell it was going to rain because of the clouds.

或者:因為有雲,我們可以斷定要下雨了。

We often use it to talk about differences. Then, we might use the negative or the question.

我們經常用它來談論差異。然後,我們可以用否定形式或疑問句。

Can you tell the difference between this cup and that cup? I can't tell the difference between this cup and that cup.

你能說出這個杯子和那個杯子的區別嗎?我分辨不出這個杯子和那個杯子的區別。

We often use can tell with the pronoun 'you' to talk about something that many people should find obvious.

我們經常用can tell和代詞you一起來談論一些很多人都覺得很明顯的事情。

You can tell he's an English teacher - he knows all the answers.

你可以看出他是個英語老師——他知道所有的答案。
