1.  cloth 指做衣服等用的布料,如“布;毛料”等,是不可数名词。表达“一块布料”应说a piece of cloth,如:
  ① Different kinds of cloth are produced in that factory. 那家工厂生产各种各样的布料。
  ② My aunt bought me two pieces of cloth yesterday. 我姑妈昨天给我买两块布。
  ③ 但是,用于表达特殊用途的布时,如“台布;揩布”等,cloth是可数名词。如:Pass me a table cloth, please. 请递给我一块台布。

2. clothes “衣服”,没有单数形式,不能单独与数词直接搭配。如不能说hour clothes, 但可以说many/ these/ a few clothes,它总是以复数形式出现,因此只能说: The clothes are… 如:
  ① All of her clothes were made by her mother. 她所有的衣服都是她母亲做的。
  ② There are many new clothes on sale. 有许多新衣服出售。

3. clothing 意思也是“衣服”, 但它与clothes 不同,不是指具体的和件件的衣服,而是指衣着的整体而言。如:
  ① They were all in their summer clothing. 他们都穿夏天的服装。
  ② Each child has ample clothing. 每个孩子都有足够的衣服。

4.  dress 通常指外面穿的衣服。一般指妇女和儿童服装,还指礼服或某种特殊的服装。是可数名词。如:
  ① Who’s that girl in red dress? 穿红衣服的那位姑娘是谁?
  ② What size dress do you wear? 你穿几号衣服?
  ③ He doesn’t care much about dress? 他不太讲究衣着。(他不讲穿)。
  ④ He is in full dress. 他穿着礼服。

5. suit 通常指用同样布料或衣料做成的一套衣服。如:
  ① She was wearing a red suit. 她穿着一套红西装。
  ② He wanted very much to get a new suit and throw off his old clothes. 他很想买一套新衣服,好赶快脱掉他的旧衣服。
