prospective vs. perspective

prospective vs. perspective

辨析:这两者都是留学文书里出现频率极高的词,但是绝对不要张冠李戴。前者是形容词,描述一种即将发生的状态,譬如,作者对于所申请的大学来说可以是prospective student,也可以是prospective engineer/professional/experimentalist等等。后者的话是既是美术中的“透视”,也可以作为“观点、视角”,一般使用在称赞diversity的情形里,例如different/multiple perspectives,所谓“兼听则明,偏信则暗”。

例句:
Brady often charged no fee to stars of a certain stature to impress other prospective patrons.
Provide teachers with educational perspectives on students as learners of technology.
