这两个介词短语的词义范围使用场合并不相同。at ease的意思是“安逸地”、“安心地”、“自在地”(feeling confident or relaxed),其反义短语为ill at ease;with ease的意思是“轻松地”、“容易地”(easily or without difficulty)。

就使用场合而言,at ease即可作表语,亦可作状语;with ease只能用作状语。例:

The old couple are now quite at ease as their son is out of danger.

这一对老夫妻现在可安心了,因为他们的儿子已脱离危险。

有好的社会保障,老年人都过得很安逸。

注:stand at ease是军事术语,意为“稍息”;take one's ease是“休息”或“无拘无束”。例:

The soldiers are standing at ease now.

士兵们现在在稍息。

We are now taking our ease.
