When used as a verb they both have the same general meaning of "to move upwards", the main difference is that rise is an intransitive verb (it does not take an object), while raise is a transitive verb (it requires an object):

当raise和rise做动词用时,两者都有“抬高、提升”的意思,其区别在于rise是不及物动词(后面不加宾语),而raise是及物动词(后面要加宾语)。

rise (v) Something rises by itself.

rise(动词),自动升起

Example 1: The sun rises in the east.

例1:太阳从东方升起。

Example 2: Luther rose slowly from the chair.

Example 3: I will rise tomorrow morning at 6 a.m. to walk the dog.

Rise is an irregular verb: rise / rose / risen

Raise(动词),把某物举起

2. assume、know和think的辨析

To assume is a regular verb that means to suppose something to be the true, but without proof.

Example: I assume you're here to learn English.

例句:我假设你来这里是来学英语的。

To know is an irregular verb that means to be absolutely certain or sure about something, usually through observation, inquiry, or information.

Example: I think English is a global language.

Note - If you need to remember which one to use, memorise this sentence: Why do some people assume they know what other people think about something?

提示:如果你想记住这三个词的区别的话,记住下面这个例句就行了:为什么有些人自认为他们知道别人在想些什么?
