By Contrast Là Gì

I don"t think there is a difference in meaning, only in usage.This blog post details it:

“In contrast” & “by contrast” mean the same thing: the act of comparing in order khổng lồ show differences. The difference lies in the way the words are used.

“In contrast” is usually followed by “to” or “with” & requires a noun lớn follow it. “By contrast” is usually followed or preceded by the subject of the sentence.

Examples:

In contrast khổng lồ the diligent bee, the butterfly flies hither và yon with no apparent purpose. In contrast with the chorus of birdsongs in my backyard, my front yard is serenaded by the sound of rumbling buses flying down the street.

Both "in contrast" và "by contrast" are prepositional expressions. The usage is more versatile for "in contrast" because it can be more naturally extended lớn include a substantive followed by "to", to lớn construct a more complex prepositional phrase with specific content, allowing one to lớn use just one sentence instead of two

(1) "In contrast to lớn bacterial infections diseases, viral infections cannot be treated with antibiotics."

By contrast, "By contrast" is more used as a simple prepositional expression in the sense of a modifying adverb, typically used lớn maintain the logical flow at the beginning of sentences:

(2) "Bacterial infections can be treated with antibiotics. By contrast/(In contrast), viral infections vì chưng not respond lớn to this class of drugs".

chú ý that (2) requires two sentences lớn say the say the same thing.

In the usage (2) one sees both "in" and "by contrast". However, editors at the leading British scientific journal NATURE, always correct "in contrast" into "by contrast" .

As a native vsao.club speaker, translator & proof reader, I prefer "in contrast", whereas "by contrast" always jars a little with me (I just came across it in a text I"m revising right now). I can"t explain why and I don"t know if there is a hard and fast rule (I doubt it), but that"s my two cents. When in doubt, leave sầu it out!
