词语辨析

These are all words for the area or distance that you can see from a particular position. 以上各词均指视力范围、视野。

the area or distance that you can see from a particular position 指视力范围、视野:

He looked up the street, but there was no one in sight.

他朝街上望去,一个人也没看见。

Leave any valuables in your car out of sight.

把贵重物品留在车里看不见的地方。

( rather formal ) the area or distance that you can see from a particular position 指视力范围、视野:

The lake soon came into view.

那湖很快便映入眼帘。

the area that you can see from a particular position 指视野:

The couple moved outside her field of vision (= total area you can see from a particular position) .

这对夫妇离开了她的视野。

用sight、view还是vision?

The view is more literary than sight or vision. It is the only word for talking about how well you can see.

view较sight和vision书面化,是其中唯一指视野清晰程度的词:

I didn’t have a good sight/vision of the stage.

Vision must always be used with a possessive pronoun.

vision总是与物主代词连用:

my/his/her etc. (field of) vision

我/他/她…的视野

It is not used with the prepositions in, into, and out of that are very frequent with sight and view.

vision不与介词in、into和out of连用,但sight和view常与这些介词连用:

There was nobody in vision.

A tall figure came into vision.
