请看外电报道:An Iraqi woman confessed on Jordanian state television Sunday that she tried to blow herself up along with her husband during a hotel wedding reception last week, saying that the explosives concealed under her denim dress failed todetonate.

文中的detonate和explode的意思相似,表示“爆炸”,如,The dynamite detonated.(炸药爆炸了。)作及物动词用时,detonate可指“引爆”,用英文可解释为to cause to explode,比如,to detonate an atomic device(引爆一个原子装置)。Detonate的名词形式是detonation。
