aim和purpose的区别

aim和purpose的共同意思是“目的,目标”。其区别是:

purpose指追求的目的或达到这一目的的决心、意志、计划或意图等。

aim用作单数时指存在心中的“目标”,比purpose更具体;用作复数时,指笼统的理想或目标。例如:

What is your aim in life?您的生活目标是什么?

He hopes to achieve all his aims by the end of the year.他希望年内完成所有目标。

Do you think you can accomplish your purpose?你能达到目的吗?

The purpose was to halt the rise in the exchange rate of the Swiss franc.目的在于制止瑞士法郎汇率上涨。
