Quiz: “famous”的相反詞是什麼?

Famous (出名)的相反詞是 infamous 嗎?

你知道infamous的意思嗎?

其實Famous同Infamous都有著名的含義,不過用法同含義(connotation)就好唔同


Famous =出名的,用法是正面的

同義詞/近義詞包括 renowned, well-known, prominent, notable, acclaimed, eminent, famed



Infamous 係 famous in a bad way ,都係出名,但意義是負面的=臭名遠播

infamous 類似的字包括:

notorious, scandalous, opprobrious, ill-famed

由於 infamous都係出名,所以唔係famous的相反詞


而famous既相反既係無名的,可以用 unknown/unrecognized/obscure
