「非常生氣」只會說「very angry」? 別總是用very啦!試試這些詞

過人君 2022/07/02 檢舉 我要評論

在口語或寫作中,你有沒有過:

「詞匯不夠,very來湊」的經歷呢?

巨大的:very big

憤怒的:very angry

這樣說英語不僅顯得詞匯貧乏

而且離你真正想表達的總差那麼一點距離。

其實,在英文中有很多詞可以代替very+簡單形容詞

今天我們就一起來學習這些詞~

你會發現,運用這些詞立馬讓你的表達地道十倍!

第一波

(建議收藏)

以上講到的就不再贅述了, 再來補充一些其它的詞:

very angry —> furious 憤怒的 very beautiful —> gorgeous 美麗動人的 very rich —> wealthy 富有的 very careful —> cautious 謹慎的 very expensive —> costly 昂貴的 very busy —> swamped 繁忙的 Sb‘s swamped with something:XX在XX事上忙不過來

She‘s swamped with powerpoint for the presentation.

她忙著做做展示用的PPT。

very clean—> spotless一塵不染的

現在我們來描述下下面的這張圖。

(布里是一個美麗富有的家庭主婦,她在一個一塵不染的廚房里做烘培。她生起氣來,因為她不小心打破了一只昂貴的碗。)

如果是之前,我猜大家會這麼來說:

Bree is a very beautiful and rich housewife. She is busy with baking in a very clean kitchen. She got very angry as she broke a very expensive bowl because of her carelessness.

對比:

Bree, a gorgous and wealthy housewife, was swaped with baking in a spotless kitchen. She got furious as she broke a costly bowl because of her incaution.

這樣描述畫面感, 語言的貼切感立馬出來,英語好得連自己都不敢相信了!

第二波

very big —> massive 巨大的,魁偉的 very small —> petite [pəˈtit] 小巧的 very boring —> dull 乏味的 very poor —> destitute['dɛstətʊt] 窮困的very difficult —> arduous ['ɑrdʒuəs] 艱難的very bad —> awful 糟糕的 very smart —> intelligent 聰明的 very sad —> sorrowful 悲傷的 very tall —> towering 高大的 very little —> tiny 微小的

(站在高大宏偉的大廈面前,喬希覺得他很渺小。他是一個聰明的年輕人,可他卻窮困潦倒,過著艱難而乏味的生活。)

Standing in front of a big and tall buiding, Josh feels himself very small. He is an very smart young man, but he‘s very poor and leads an very difficult and boring life.

Standing in front of a massive and towering building, Josh felt himself so petite. He is anintelligent young man, but he‘s destitute and leads an arduous and dull life.
