Person和Persons;People和Peoples的区别

Hi, I’m Dan from BBC Learning English and today I’m going to talk to you about person and persons, people and peoples.

大家好,我是BBC的丹. 今天我们来学习person 和 persons, people 和 peoples.

A person is a human man, woman, or child. It is a singular countable noun. There was one person at the door.

A person表示一个男人、女人或小孩,是单数可数名词。门口站着一个人。

The plural of person is people. It refers to a group or a number of human beings. It is a plural countable noun. There were three people at the door.

person的?#35789;?#24418;式是people,表示一群人。它是一个?#35789;?#21487;数名词。门口站着三个人。

So how about persons?

那persons表示什么呢?

Persons is a plural countable noun. It's similar to people, but it's considered more polite and more formal. It’s most often seen written down. This lift can hold a maximum of 15 persons.

这是一个?#35789;?#21487;数名词,和people相似,但比people更正?#20581;?#36890;常用于书面形?#20581;?#36825;?#24247;?#26799;最大承载量是15人。

And peoples?

那peoples有表示什么呢?

Peoples is the countable plural form of people and comes from the other meaning of people. People can mean nation. The Aztecs were a people that lived in the Americas. Or, there are many peoples living on the Earth. They are all human - so far.

peoples是people的?#35789;?#24418;式,来源于people的另一层意思。people也可以表示民族。阿芝特克是美国的一个民族。或者可以说,地球上的民族很多。目前来看?#38469;?#20154;类。
