單字解析:

☆ witch,名詞 /wɪtʃ/ 巫婆

自然發音:witch

例句:In the story, a wicked witch put a curse on the princess for 100 years.(故事裡,邪惡的巫婆對公主施以100年的詛咒。)

用法:wicked,邪惡的。put a curse,施咒語。witch hunt(獵巫)政治迫害。

☆ watch,名詞 /wɑːtʃ/ 手錶

自然發音:watch

英解:a small clock that is worn on a strap around the wrist

例句:My watch seems to have stopped. (我的手錶好像停了。)

用法:watch strap,錶帶。wrist,手腕。當動詞時,意為「觀看」,watch your step,小心點。

☆ which,代名詞 /wɪtʃ/ 哪一個

自然發音:wich

英解:used for asking for a specific choice from a limited number of possibilities

例句:Which would you like, tea or coffee?(你要選哪一個,茶或咖啡?)
