看绝望的主妇学英语习语:Feel for someone

Feel for someone: to feel the emotional pain that someone else is feeling; to empathize or sympathize with someone(同情某人),as in Tom was so upset that I felt for him. This usage was put as feel with by Shakespeare: “It resounds as if it felt with Scotland” ( Macbeth, 4:3). Both senses of feel for are present in the somewhat sarcastic I feel for you but I can’t quite reach you, meaning “Too bad, but I don’t really feel sorry for you.”

中文释义:feel for somebody (something) 表示同情处在困境或痛苦中的某人,或由衷地表示痛心,可以理解为“同情某人”,“觉得……惋惜”等。需要注意的是,如果变成 have a feel for 的结构的话,就表示对……有感觉,喜欢对方等含义。另外口语交流中,经常有人用“I feel sorry for you”表示同情,却不知这种用法有种瞧不起的嫌疑。此时更好的表达应该是“I feel for you”。

今日看点:玩转“feel”
I feel you(我懂你)
I feel sick(我感到恶心想吐 )
I feel like I’m falling ill(我感觉我生病了)
