形容天气贼冷,我都不好意思再说"Very Very Cold"了!

提到very

很多人都觉得它实在是太万能了

当觉得good不够表现自己对一个事物喜爱时

我们会用very good

当觉得cold不够表现天气的寒冷程度时

我们会用very cold

觉得语气还不够强烈

没关系,我们还有very very cold

 

 

还有

very expensive, very beautiful, very smart...

也就是说,每当想强调一个形容词的时候

我们就会不由自主想到very

想象一下

如果你和朋友的问答是下面这个样子的

你是什么感受呢?

 

How is the weather? 

Very cold.

How did you like the boy you met last week? 
Very handsome.

How was your lunch? 
Very nice.

How was the chemistry exam this morning?
Very easy.

How is your dorm room?
Very neat.

 

Very cold是有多冷?

是0度还是零下10度?

不清楚!

 

Very handsome是有多帅?

刘昊然那种邻家男孩帅还是吴彦祖那种型男帅?

还是不清楚!!

不妨看看马克·吐温对very这个词的态度:

每次想要用very的时候就用damn代替吧;

你的编辑会直接帮你删掉它,

这样才是文章该有的样子。

那么,有小伙伴就要问了

fine

既然不让我用very,

那表示强调的时候要用啥?!

学姐在线给你支招!

事实上

我们完全可以用更为“高阶”的形容词

来替换“very + 基础形容词”

比如说,可以用chilly或者freezing来替换very cold:

It's chilly/freezing outside.

❄chilly指使人哆嗦的冷;

freezing指使人僵直、使东西凝固的冷

是不是比very cold形象多了?

再比如,

用attractive/hunky/sharp来替换very handsome:

The boy is attractive/hunky/sharp.

对方能够自行脑补男孩吸引人、

健壮抑或是潇洒的那种帅气。

上面的对话如果变成这样

妈妈再也不用担心我是话题终结者啦!

How is the weather? 

It's chilly today./It's freezing!

How did you like the boy you met last week? 
Attractive/Hunky/Sharp

How was your lunch? 
Delicious/Delectable

How was the chemistry exam this morning?
Uncomplicated/Effortless/Unchallenging

How is your dorm room?
Orderly/Tidy/Spotless

 

除了上面这些例子

学姐还给大家整理了45个

更为高阶、表达也更为具体及有效的词汇

下次说英语时不要总说very啦!

此外

恰当地使用比喻来替换“very + 基础形容词”

更能让阅卷老师眼前一亮

是提升英语作文逼(fēn)格(shù)的一大法宝呢!

as light as a feather

feather 意思是“羽毛”,
“as light as a feather”表示“和羽毛一样轻”,也就是“轻如鸿毛”。
用来代替“very very light ”实在是再贴切不过了。

例句:The little baby rabbit was as light as a feather in her hand.      

这只小小的兔子在她手里像羽毛一样轻。

 as quick as lightning

lightening是“闪电”的意思。
“as quick as lighting”意为““快如闪电”,
是不是完全可以用来代替“very very quick”了呢!

例句:She's as quick as lightning>她在网球场上疾如闪电。

英语中用 as…as...的比喻还有很多

as black as coal: 黑得跟炭一样

as white as a sheet: 白得跟纸一样

brave as a lion: 勇猛如狮

as thin as a lath: 骨瘦如柴
as weak as water: 弱不禁风

as dry as a bone: 十分干燥
as heavy as lead: 沉重如铅
as pretty as a picture: 美丽如画
as steady as a rock: 坚如磬石
as strong as a bull(an ox): 壮如牛
as timid as a mouse: 胆小如鼠
as hungry as a wolf: 饥如饿狼

熟悉了这些表达,我再也不用very了!
