made of 与 made from 的区别



made of与made from是英文中常常让人感到困惑的两组短语,但其实要分辨它们的差异很简单,以下由小编带大家来分辨两者的不同。


例1.This chair is made of wood. 这张椅子由木头制作而成。

例2. Cream is made from milk. 霜淇淋由牛奶做成。


“A is made of B.”用在当你想表达B由A组成时,这种情况代表B仍然是A。例如上述例1,椅子由木头组成,椅子仍然是木头,这点并没有改变。(B is still A)


“A is made from B.”用在当你想表达B是由A转变而来,此时B已经不是A,例如上述例句2中,霜淇淋由牛奶製作而成,但霜淇淋已经变成另外一种物品,它已不再是牛奶了。(A turned into B)


再来两个例句分辨made of 与made from的差异:


例1. The house is made of bricks. [They are still bricks.]


此时房子仍然是砖头组成。


例2. Wine is made from grapes. [Grapes turn into wine.]


葡萄已经由制作变成了红酒。
