在掌握英文的精确表达上,了解不同介词短语的细微区别是非常重要的。特别是在描述位置时,如 in the corner 与 on the corner 这两个看似相似但用法各异的短语,常常会给英语学习者带来困惑。本文旨在清晰地阐述这两个短语的不同之处,帮助读者更准确地使用它们来描述物体的位置。

In the corner

In the corner 用来描述某物位于一个封闭空间(如房间、盒子等)的角落里。当我们讲到 in the corner 时,这个角落通常是由两面相交的墙壁或边界形成的。这个短语强调的是物体在一个内部空间的特定位置。

The lamp is in the corner of the room. 灯放在房间的角落里。
He placed the toy in the corner of the box. 他把玩具放在盒子的一角。

On the corner

相比之下, on the corner 通常用来描述某物位于外部空间(如街道、广场等)的转角或交叉点上。这里的 corner 是指街道或道路交会的角落。类似于我们说“在街上”用  on the street 表达, on the corner 强调的是位于户外的特定地理位置。

The coffee shop is on the corner of Main Street and 2nd Avenue. 咖啡店位于主街和第二大道的转角处。
There is a mailbox on the corner near my house.在我家附近的街角有一个邮筒。
