Foreign is by far the most frequent of these words and has the widest range. When describing groups of people such as visitors, investors or buyers, overseas is often preferred, especially when the group includes people who are not foreign but are living in a foreign country. * foreign在这些词中最常用,含义最宽泛。overseas常用以描述visitor、investor或buyer之类的群体,尤其是此类群体中包括一些外侨时In this constituency only 65 overseas voters registered in time to vote.在这个选区中,只有65名海外选民及时登记了投票。'Foreign voters' would be people living in your own country who are from a foreign country. Both overseas and external are used especially in the contexts of business and politics: they are factual, businesslike words and contain no suggestion of 'difference' or 'strangeness', which foreign sometimes does. Alien is a more literary word and often carries a stronger sense of difference or strangeness, often in a negative or disapproving way. It is also used to describe plants and animals from a foreign country. * foreign voter指住在本国的外籍选民。overseas和external尤用于商务和政治语境,均为事实性、公务性的词语,并不暗含“差异”或“奇怪”之义,而foreign有时则带有这些含义。alien更具文学色彩,常含有较强的“差异”或“奇怪”之义,且常常是负面或贬义的。alien亦可修饰异域的动植物。
