accuse和charge的区别

accuse和charge这两个词都可表示“控告、指控、指责”的意思,其区别是:

1、accuse指所指控的事不一定很严重,多指直接指控,谴责某人的过错或罪行。而charge常指因犯性质较为严重的错误或罪行而受到控告。例如:

Man often accuses nature for his own misfortune.人常因自己的不幸而责怪老天。

The police charged her with stealing the jewels.警方控告她偷窃珠宝。

2、accuse常与介词of搭配,而charge却与介词with搭配。例如:

He accused me of having leglected my duty.他指责我玩忽职守。

They charged him with dishonesty.他们指责他不诚实。

3、charge可接从句,并可用于非人称结构,accuse则不能。例如:

She charged that he had stolen her car.她控告他头了她的车。
