In some cases, it's not easy to know the difference between words that are spelled very similarly. In this post, I will explain the difference between "separate" and "seperate"!

在某些情况下,区分拼写非常相似的单词并不容易。本文将解释“separate”和“seperate”的区别!

Separate

分离

Separate can be a verb or adjective.

Separate既是动词也是形容词。

As a verb, it means to be apart, to make different from one another.

Separate作为动词时,意思是分开,使彼此不同。

Separate is also an adjective meaning apart, individual, or different

Separate同时也是一个形容词,意思是分开的,个别的,或不同的。

Related forms of the word include separation (noun), separated (past tense verb), separating (continuous verb)[/en

Separate的相关形式包括separation(名词形式)、 separated(过去式)、separating(持续动词)。

举例说明:

Seperate

分开???

This is not a word. This is the incorrectly-spelled form of the word separate. Do not use this word unless you are deliberately trying to spell it wrong.

这并不是一个词。这是单词separate不正确的拼写形式。除非是故意拼写错误的,否则不要使用这个词。
