用stand、get up还是stand up？
stand, get up or stand up?
stand通常含站立、直立之义，但亦含站起来、起来之义。stand up用于上述两种意思均可，但其用法较受限制，主要用于指让某人站起来或某人只得站着（如没地方坐）。get up 是表达从坐着、跪着或躺着的姿势站起来、起立、起身最常用的方法；stand up 则几乎总是指从坐着的姿势，尤指从椅子上站起来：
Stand usually means ‘to be in a standing position’ but can also mean ‘to get into a standing position’. Stand up can be used with either of these meanings, but its use is more restricted: it is used especially when sb tells sb or a group of people to stand, or when sb has to stand up (for example, because there is nowhere to sit). Get up is the most frequent way of saying ‘get into a standing position’, and this can be from a sitting, kneeling or lying position; if you stand up , this is nearly always after sitting, especially on a chair.
If you want to tell sb politely that they do not need to move from their chair, use get up .
