1. 表示“客人”(与host相对),主要指社交上的客人或被邀请的客人。如:

Martin introduced his guests to Jane. 介绍他的客人给简。

When guests leave the host usually sees them out. 客人走时,主人通常送出门。


The hotel takes very good care of its guests. 这家旅馆对客人照顾很周到。

但是,guest通常不指商店的客人(customer)、来访的客人(caller, visitor)、交通工具上的客人(passenger),所以以下各句均不宜用guest。如:

The store has more customers than it can take care of. 这个商店的顾客多得应接不暇。

He is a frequent visitor to the gallery. 他经常参观这家美术馆。

Neither the driver nor the passengers were hurt. 司机和乘客都没有受伤。

2. 用于名词前作定语,表示“特邀的”“客座的”等,如a guest professor(客座教授),a guest editor(特约编辑),a guest speaker(特邀演讲者),等等。

3. 口语中说 be my guest, 用于回答请求,意为“请便”。如:

A:May I see the newspaper? 我可以看这份报纸吗?

B:Be my guest. 请便。
