NOTE 辨析 Embarrassed, uncomfortable or awkward? Embarrassed is used especially to describe how sb feels, especially when they think everyone is looking at them, laughing at them or knows sth too personal about them. Uncomfortable is often used to describe a situation in which people are unsure how to behave, especially because there is a subject that people do not want to mention but do not know how to avoid. Awkward is often used to describe sb's personality or usual behaviour, not just their feelings on a particular occasion. However, in many cases any of these words can be used. * embarrassed尤形容所有人注视着自己、嘲笑自己或了解自己隐私时的尴尬感觉。uncomfortable常形容令人不知所措的场合,尤指面对不愿提及却又无法回避的话题。awkward常形容个性或行为习惯,不限于特殊场合的感受。但在很多情况下这几个词都可以用He felt embarrassed / uncomfortable / awkward about being the centre of attention.成为众人注目的中心,他感到很不自在。an embarrassed / uncomfortable / awkward silence令人尴尬的沉默
