1. 忽(hū)略(lüè)(neglect) is used when people neglect something unintentional, maybe because of the carelessness.

对(duì)不(bu)起(qǐ),我(wǒ)   忽(hū)略(lüè)了(le)   这(zhè)个(ge)   细(xì)节(jié)。

         Sorry,                   I               neglected                 this                detail.

2. 忽(hū)视(shì)(ignore) can not only functions as 忽(hū)略(lüè)(ignore), but is also used when ignoring someone intentionally because of the indifference and the contempt.

很(hěn)多(duō)      富(fù)人(rén)     忽(hū)视(shì)了(le)   穷(qióng)人(rén)的(de)      感(gǎn)受(shòu)

      Many            wealthy people         ignored                   poor people’s               feeling.

3. 疏(shū)忽(hū)(negligence) usually functions as noun.

因(yīn)为(wéi)     他(tā)的(de)   疏(shū)忽(hū),  我(wǒ)们(men)   失(shī)败(bài)了(le)。

Because of               his            negligence,              we                      failed.

As a Chinese learner, it would be better to remember these phrases:

(1) 不(bù)容(róng)忽(hū)视(shì)/ is not tolerant to ignore

(2) 忽(hū)视(shì)了(le)他(tā)的(de)感(gǎn)受(shòu)/ ignored his feeling

(3) 不(bù)能(néng)忽(hū)略(lüè)/忽(hū)视(shì)细(xì)节(jié)/ mustn’t ignore the details

(4) 由(yóu)于(yú)他(tā)的(de)疏(shū)忽(hū)/ because of his negligence
