person是个体名词,它泛指man,woman或child中的任何一个,其复数形式是persons,但人们习惯用 people代替persons。 “一个人”常译作a person,而需要说明一个人的性别时,要用a man 或 a woman来表示。如: Who is the youngest person in your class? 你们班里年龄最小的人是谁? people作“人”讲时,是集合名词,表复数概念。说“一个人”时,不用people。当表示两个以上的人时,可用people。如:twenty people二十个人。people作“民族”解时,有单、复数之分。如:a people一个民族。There are 56 peoples in China. 中国有56个民族。
