5** 詞彙

Spencer Sir 今日想教大家幾種 5** 嘅詞彙,幫大家係作文嘅時候有更多嘅選擇!

艱辛

  1. strenuous (adj.)

例如:

Despite Rafael Nadal’s strenuous efforts in the final of the 2012 Australian Open, he was trounced by Novak Djokovic.

 

  1. laborious (adj.)

見到labor 字頭都估到係同勞工,辛勞有關啦!佢變咗做形容詞,咪係指艱辛咯!

例如:

Getting 5** in every subject in the HKDSE is a laborious task.

 

  1. arduous (adj.)

呢個字可能大家會比較陌生,眼見奇怪啲字母組合,但都係指艱辛架!

例如:

Bringing up autistic children is an arduous task

 

  1. painstaking (adj.)

呢個大家一睇就見到個pain 啦!pain 解痛苦,咁呢個字都離不開艱辛嘅意思

例如:

Mr. Yu believes his students’ painstaking efforts will pay off.

不同

  1. not alike (adj.)/ (adv.)

Alike? 以為打錯字?

其實alike係解一樣,佢可以用做adj. 或 adv.

例如:

All students do not look alike.

 

  1. various (adj.)

Various係各種不同的

例如:

Toyota provides various kinds of models, including petrol-driven cars, electric cars and hybrid cars.

 

  1. distinct (adj.)
    distinct係明顯不同的

同普通不同又高咗一個層次

例如:

There are two distinct political parties within Hong Kong.

 

  1. different(adj.)

當然!點少得最常用嘅 different。相信我唔洗多講呢個字

例如:

As a shopping paradise, Hong Kong offers different sorts of cuisine for tourists to choose from.

解釋

  1. illustrate (v.)

平時睇書都會見到插畫嗰欄

但原來illustrate係可以解‘解釋’架

(之後嗰啲更加難以想像)

 

例如:

The incompetence of the government in handling the pollution problem illustrates its chilling disregard for the alarming problem.

 

  1. demonstrate (v.)

Demonstrate 唔係示範咩?其實demonstrate 都有 make things clear 嘅意思,即係‘解釋’

例如:

 A series of scandals have demonstrated the incompetence of the government.

 

  1. spell out (v. phrase)

無錯!有無啲‘解釋’嘅味道呢?

不過,記住要一齊用!

如果唔係,就真係俾人串架喇

例如:

The government has refused to spell out its plans

值得稱讚的

  1. praiseworthy (adj.)

呢個字應該好易解啦! (同之後介紹嘅字一樣)“praise”解稱讚“worthy”解值得

praise➕worthy 就係……

‘值得稱讚’咯

例如:

The players of the Chinese women’s volleyball team were praiseworthy for their poise against the mighty USA team.

 

  1. commendable (adj.)

呢個字同樣都好易理解!“commend”解稱讚

“-able”尾通常係 (adj.)

咁➕埋係

‘值得稱讚’咯

例如:

Chancellor Angela Merkel is commendable as she has managed to bring economic prosperity to the Germans.

 

  1. laudable (adj.)

最後呢個字可能有少少陌生,但laud都係解讚揚,夾埋“-able”通常會變(adj.)

 

不過!!

佢仲有更深層次嘅意思

就係*行為或習慣*值得稱讚,*就算*只係成功好少

例如:

Saving dozens of workers trapped in the mine, the rescue workers are laudable.
