Escoger la palabra correcta
shake, tremble, shiver, quiver, quake
Shake is the most general term ( buildings shook in Sacramento): the others denote shaking of various degrees of intensity, and when used of a person, indicate more often than shake that it results from weakness or emotion. Shake and quiver are the only ones that can be used transitively ( a severe earthquake shook the area).To tremble is to shake uncontrollably with slight, rapidly repeated movements. Trembling is especially associated with fear or weakness ( the boy spoke cockily, but his voice trembled | she held the letter with trembling hands).Shiver denotes a similar slight and uncontrollable shaking, but, unlike tremble, it can be used only of bodies and other physical objects, not, for example, of voices ( the spectators shivered and drew their coats firmly about them). Shivering is most commonly caused by cold or horror ( Katherine shivered and drew her coat more tightly round her | she shivered at the threat in his quiet voice).To quiver is to move lightly and rapidly and often results from strong emotion ( Anthea's eyelids quivered | ‘Don't you love me any more?’ I asked, quivering my bottom lip).To quake is to shake violently ( the rumbling vibrations set the whole valley quaking). Applied to people, quake indicates extreme fear and is typically used figuratively ( those words should have them quaking in their boots).
