Today’s Word: comparison

April 2, 2017      =========

☆  comparison   比較


When you make a comparison, you consider two or more things and discover the differences between them. For example, students studying politics might write a report on the comparison of the US system and the Japanese political system.

When you use the phrase, “there is no comparison between X and Y” it means that you think that X is much better, or very different from Y. For example, “There is no comparison between the knowledge and skill of professional baseball players and the ordinary casual player.” Or, if someone is interested in eating healthily, they might say, “There is no comparison between fresh vegetables from the local farmer’s market and those from the supermarket.”
