Synonyms of "Wounded" and their differences

Q: What is the difference between wounded and injured ?
A: こういった基本的なニュアンスレベルの差はあるものの境界線は非常に感覚的で人によっては区別していないケースもありました。

injuredのほうが広い意味でとれる一般的な言葉・大カテゴリーであり、その中の特定の状況・外傷にwoundedを使うと考えてもいいかもしれません。特に事故のニュース報道などでまだ詳細不明だけれど「負傷者がいる」となった場合に細かな状況がわからない以上はwoundedで示す理由がなく、injuredが無難な言葉の選択だといえます。

以下の例文で比較してみます。

例文
◎ The football player was injured during last week’s game.
〇 The football player was wounded during last week’s game.
フットボール選手は先週の試合で怪我をした。

この場合はおそらくアクシデントであり事故だと思われるのでinjuredがベストです。またフットボール選手の場合は骨折や打撲が多いですが、woundedを使うと皮膚が切れて血が出るようなものを連想させます。文章として間違いではありませんが、事実がどうだったかの問題につながります。


例文
◎ Over 20 soldiers were wounded in the attack.
〇 Over 20 soldiers were injured in the attack.
20人以上の兵士が攻撃で負傷した。
例文
◎ She was injured in a car accident.
〇 She was wounded in a car accident.
