Cách sử dụng ‘Put off’ và ‘Postpone’

“Put off” và “Postpone” đều có nghĩa là trì hoãn, nhưng chúng có những sắc thái khác nhau trong cách sử dụng và ngữ cảnh. Dưới đây là sự khác biệt và cách áp dụng của từng từ:

1. Put off

Định nghĩa:

  • “Put off” thường được sử dụng trong ngôn ngữ thông dụng hàng ngày. Nó mang nghĩa trì hoãn một việc gì đó đến một thời điểm sau.

Cách sử dụng:

  • Thường dùng trong các tình huống không chính thức.
  • Có thể mang nghĩa là hoãn lại một việc không muốn làm ngay bây giờ.

Ví dụ:

  • I keep putting off going to the dentist. (Tôi cứ trì hoãn mãi việc đi khám nha sĩ.)
  • Can we put off our meeting until tomorrow? (Chúng ta có thể hoãn cuộc họp đến ngày mai không?)

2. Postpone

Định nghĩa:

  • “Postpone” mang nghĩa chính thức hơn so với “put off” và thường được sử dụng trong văn viết hoặc các tình huống trang trọng.

Cách sử dụng:

  • Thường dùng trong các tình huống chính thức hoặc bán chính thức.
  • Được dùng khi việc trì hoãn đã được quyết định và thông báo một cách rõ ràng.

Ví dụ:

  • The conference has been postponed until next month. (Hội nghị đã bị hoãn đến tháng sau.)
  • Due to the weather, the match was postponed to a later date. (Do thời tiết, trận đấu đã bị hoãn đến một ngày sau đó.)

Tổng kết sự khác biệt

  • Mức độ chính thức: “Postpone” chính thức hơn “put off”.
  • Ngữ cảnh sử dụng: “Put off” thường dùng trong giao tiếp hàng ngày, không chính thức. “Postpone” dùng trong các tình huống trang trọng, văn bản.
  • Cảm xúc: “Put off” có thể ngụ ý sự miễn cưỡng hoặc không muốn làm điều gì đó ngay lập tức, trong khi “postpone” chỉ đơn thuần là thông báo về sự trì hoãn mà không mang theo cảm xúc.
