An annex is an extension of or an addition to a building. A small room off of a main room is an annex, and attics are another type of annex.
As a noun, an annex is part of a building or an addition to a main structure, or it can be an attachment, as in “an annex to the current plans.” When used as a verb, the word means something a little different. Sometimes annex is used as a nice word for “take” or “grab,” as when Nazi Germany took the Sudetenland from Czechoslovakia in 1938 and added it to their own territory. In order to annex something to what is yours, you have to take it away from someone else.
作为名词，附件是建筑物的一部分或主体结构的附加部分，或者它可以是附件，如“当前计划的附件”。当用作动词时，这个词的意思有点不同。有时 annex 被用作表示“take”或“grab”的好词，例如纳粹德国于 1938 年从捷克斯洛伐克手中夺取了苏台德地区并将其并入自己的领土。为了将某些东西附在你的东西上，你必须从别人那里拿走它。
