關於Barely的意思和用法的提問

包含"Barely"的句子的意思

Q: barely是什麼意思
A: You're correct that it means something happened by a small margin or rarely happens.
Similarly, It can also mean to have a small amount of something.

Eg:

-The passing grade for the exam was 70%, I got 72% on the exam.
I just barely passed.

-I'm usually early to work/
I'm barely ever late to work/
I'm almost never late to work.
(Same meaning.)

-I barely noticed you/
I noticed you only slightly/
I almost didn't notice you/
Your presence was very small.
(Same meaning.)

-I have barely any food left/
I have very little food left/
I almost don't have any more food.
(Same meaning.)

Barely IS a negative word and shouldn't be combined with other negatives but it can SOUND like a positive (similar to "just enough") depending on your tone of voice.

Eg:

"I was barely able to get on the train on time." (Negative.)

"I was just barely able to get on the train on time!" (Still negative but sounds positive)

"Barely"的近義詞和區別

Q: barely 和 seldom 的差別在哪裡?
A: “Barely” has a spatial sense, of closeness: a very thin space being left or affected. It doesn’t mean “almost,” so much as “almost not.” “She was barely 120 cm tall” means, not that she was 119.5, but that she was 120.05 cm tall. “The jumper barely cleared the bar” doesn’t mean that the jumper almost did but failed; instead it means that the jumper almost did not clear it, but succeeded—just barely. That sense of closeness can be applied to time: we barely made the train means we did make it, but with only seconds to spare. (We almost made our train means we failed, and will need to catch the next one.).

“Seldom” has nothing to do with closeness or thinness of anything; it simply means “not often,” infrequently, only some small proportion of the time.
Q: barely 和 almost 的差別在哪裡?
A: almost = nearly
barely = hardly; not almost
They're actually kind of opposites.

Examples:
"I've almost finished my homework!" This means you're close to finishing your homework. On the other hand, it doesn't make as much sense to say "I've barely finished my homework," to express the same meaning.

"I've barely started my homework..." This means you've only done a little bit of homework. It sounds unnatural to say "I've almost started my homework..."

A: Are you almost here?
B: Barely... I haven't even left the house yet.

"I almost always eat out."

"I barely ever eat out."

"I was so happy, I almost cried!"

"I barely ever cry... The last time I cried was 5 years ago."
Q: barely 和 rarely 的差別在哪裡?
A: Barely is saying you almost couldn’t be able to do something, but in the end, did, as in ‘I barely made it in time for work.’
Barely could also referring to low quantity of an item as in ‘There was barely any bread left in the bag’

Rarely is referring to time. It means for an event not to happen often or to happen infrequently as in ‘We rarely go outside in the winter’
Q: barely 和 hardly 的差別在哪裡?
A: I think they're basically the same but barely is used more often.
Q: barely 和 merely 的差別在哪裡?
A: Barely means: Almost not.
Example: She barely understood. Which means, she almost did not understood anything, but did understand a little bit.

Another example: She barely ran away. Which means, she almost wasn't able to run away, but she did.

Merely means: Only, or just.
Example: She's merely a friend to him. Which means, she's ONLY a friend to him and nothing more.

I hope that helped ;-;.
