  ill与sick的区别:

  1都可译为“生病的”。ill只在系动词后作表语:

  Her mother was ill in bed. She feels ill today.

  但sick既可作表语: Her mother was sick / ill in bed. (作表语常是美国英语用法)

  也可作定语(即后接名词):Jane is taking care of her sick mother.

  (此处是定语,不可用ill. 原因见下文ill用法)

  2若ill作定语,译为“坏的,恶劣的”an ill person一个坏人

  sick作表语时也常译为“恶心的,想吐的”。

  The boy always feels sick when he travels by car.
