文字稿

Welcome to BBC Learning English! I’m Sam, and today I’m happy. In fact, I’m very happy. I’m really happy. Thrilled. I’m really thrilled. I’m absolutely thrilled!

My happiness keeps getting bigger and bigger.

I started with the word ‘happy’. ‘Happy’ is a gradable adjective, so I can be:

happy here… (medium hand gesture)

quite happy here… (low hand gesture)

very or really happy here (high hand gesture).

What’s another way to say very or really happy? ‘Thrilled’.

‘Thrilled’ is not a gradable adjective, it’s an extreme adjective, it’s already up here (high hand gesture), so can we make it stronger?

Yes! You can use really. I’m really thrilled. Or absolutely. I’m absolutely thrilled. But you can’t use very.

用法總結

1. 形容詞 「happy(高興的)」 是可分級形容詞,前面可以使用程度副詞來加強語氣。

  • I’m very happy.
  • I’m really happy.

2. 形容詞 「thrilled(非常高興的)」 是極端形容詞,本身已經有 「非常」 的意思,前面只能用程度副詞 「really/absolutely」 來加強語氣。

  • I’m really thrilled
  • I’m absolutely thrilled.
