以下就是100留学SAT为大家带来SAT核心词汇练习题(3)-FASTIDIOUS,希望对各位考生的备考有所帮助:


Fastidious也是SAT试中常考的单词,我们先看一下与它有关的考题:

(1) The actor was noted for his___ behavior:he quickly became irritated if his every whim was not immediately satisfied.

(A) fastidious

(B) sedulous

(C) vindictive

(D) petulant

(E) mercenary


(2) Mac Dougall’s former editors remember himas a__ man whose__ and exhaustive reporting was worth the trouble.

A. domineering, wearisome

B. congenial, pretentious

C. popular, supercilious

D. fastidious, garbled

E. cantankerous, meticulous

答案:D E


解析:这两道题错选为AD的特别多,之所以错选,是因为很多同学在背词汇书时,用的是意群来背诵,于是careful, painstaking, scrupulous, meticulous,fastidious, punctilious都放到一个意群里, 但是这些单词之间是有微妙差别的,其中比较特殊的一个是fastidiousfastidiousimplies concern, often excessive, for the requirements of taste,表示对品位要求很高,通常是过分的关心,而且因为要求高而难以取悦。

那么如何记忆这个单词?我们先看一下breakfast(breakfastfast表示绝食,打破绝食的状态,吃的第一顿饭所以是早饭)fastidiousfast(绝食)+ous(),一直绝食,所以单词本义是挑食的,而要求苛刻的;难以取悦的则都是其比喻义。这样在我们通过词根和词缀了解到单词的比喻义来源之后,我们可以清晰的了解单词的细微意义是什么。
