Do not confuse refuse and deny. If you refuse to do something, you deliberately do not do it, or you say firmly that you will not do it. ...people who refuse to change their opinions... He refused to condemn them. You can refuse something that someone offers you. The patient has the right to refuse treatment. If someone does not allow you to have something you ask for, or to do something you have asked to do, you can say that they refuse you. He can run to Dad for money if I refuse him. If you deny something, you say that it is not true. The allegation was denied by government spokesmen. If someone denies you something, they do not allow you to have it. I never denied her anything.
不要混淆 refuse 和 deny。refuse 指有意或坚决地拒绝。如，people who refuse to change their opinions（拒绝改变观点的人），He refused to condemn them（他拒绝谴责他们）。refuse 也可以表示拒绝接受别人给你的东西：The patient has the right to refuse treatment（病人有权利拒绝接受治疗）。refuse 后面可以直接接人，表示拒绝某人的要求或拒绝某人做某事。如，He can run to Dad for money if I refuse him（如果我不给他的话，他可能跑去找爸爸要钱）。deny 指否认某事属实，如，The allegation was denied by government spokesmen（政府的发言人否认了该项指控）。deny 也指不给予，如，I never denied her anything（我对她从来都是有求必应）。
