学英语的痛苦!刚学会用前面的,人家又说要用后面的了。。。。


Use simple words and phrases

When you’re making word choices, pick the familiar or commonly used word over the unusual or obscure. There are many lists of complex words and suggested substitutes, like the one below. See also the lists in Kimble (2006).

Bold marks the dirty dozen, the 12 offenders most likely to weaken your work.

我觉的倒过来用挺好的,右边很口语,写文章或者正式email可以换成左边的替代

谁说的?要看对象,左边的是比较formal或是书面的用词,通常受过很好教育的人,或是开会谈判等正式场合大家都会用左边的词汇;右边的比较口语,casual,朋友家人随便说说,或者没什么重要的话题

原文不是你这个意思。 我看川普,小布什,奥巴马几任总统讲话也都是右边的。 We got him什么的, 都不说captured什么的。
