  不仅是中国的语言丰富多彩,外国的语言同样也是,同一个意思有多种的表达方式。下面给大家分享下,表示"极好的"的10种表达方式。

  1.Brilliant 极好的

  When we talk about a book or film we like, or about a friend’s examination scores, we might reach for the word ‘brilliant’. The OED records this kind of use as simple synonyms for the weakened ‘amazing’ or ‘fantastic’, and notes that the word ‘brilliant’ often relates to the intellect.

  当谈论我们喜欢的电影,书籍或者是好朋友的考试分数时,我们可能都会用到‘brilliant’这个词。据《牛津英语词典》记录,brilliant的这种用法是作为‘amazing’或者‘fantastic’的同义词出现,此外词典中还说明‘brilliant’常指智力。

  2.Fabulous 传说的,极好的

  ‘Fantastic’ leads us straight to ‘fabulous’, a word in its weakened state, often used as a synonym for ‘terrific’ or ‘marvellous’ – especially when it’s shortened to ‘fab’. Actually, it refers to anything relating to a fable or story. This could include a ‘fabulous’ author or a reader of their works; the events or characters of a fable; or real-life events or people that seem as if they are straight out of a work of fiction. To judge something ‘fabulous’, therefore, does not necessarily mean it is good.

  ‘Fantastic’这个词直接让我们想到了‘fabulous’这个词,‘fabulous’的语气没有‘fantastic’强,通常用作‘terrific’或者‘marvellous’的同义词 – 尤其是当‘fabulous’被缩写成‘fab’的时候。事实上,它指的是任何与寓言故事有关的事情。这可能包括一个极好的作者或者他们作品的读者;可以是寓言的时间或者人物;或者是那些现实生活中的事件以及那些看起来像从小说里走出来的人物。因此,判定某事是‘难以置信的’不一定意味着这一定是好事。

  3.Incredible 难以置信的

  Let’s start with a word that is currently in very popular use, the adjective ‘incredible’. ‘Incredible’ has three main meanings. It is popularly used to describe something extremely good or great, especially in size or scale: ‘the party was incredibly good fun’; ‘that’s incredible news!’. But the word itself stems from ‘credibility’, the extent to which something can be believed. Its true meanings, therefore, are the strong one – not credible, cannot be believed, beyond belief – or the weaker one, which is closer to the popular use – difficult to believe, hard to realize.

  让我们以一个非常流行的形容词‘incredible’作为开篇。‘Incredible’有三层含义。它通常被用来描述在大小或者规模上非常好或者很伟大的事物:‘晚会非常有趣’;‘这是个令人难以置信的消息!’。但是这个词本身起源于‘credibility’。用来指某物可以被相信的程度。因此,它的真正的含义表达的含义是很强烈的,不可相信的,不能被相信,难以置信– 或者它表示的含义不是那么强烈,更受大众所欢迎 – 难以置信,难以实现。

  4.Wonderful 奇妙的,极好的

  ‘Wonderful’ is similar to ‘incredible’. It means, quite literally, ‘full of wonder’, and describes when either an object inspires in us feelings of excitement or astonishment, or when we ourselves feel those sensations.

  ‘Wonderful’和‘incredible’含义很像。从字面上来看,它意为‘奇迹般地’,用来描述能够激发我们激动或者惊讶的事物,或者它也可以用来表达我们的震撼。

  5.Marvellous 不可思议的,惊人的

  ‘Marvellous’ is a close synonym of ‘wonderful’, and means ‘to excite wonder or astonishment; surprising; having extraordinary properties’. This last definition means it can be applied to apparently mystical experiences. In its weakened state, though, ‘marvellous’ means simply ‘extremely good or pleasing’.

  ‘Marvellous’是 ‘wonderful’的近义词,它意为:‘使惊讶,使惊奇;惊讶的;拥有非凡的性能’。很明显,最后的定义可以用来描述神秘的体验。在语气较弱的状态下,‘marvellous’仅仅意为‘非常好或者令人愉悦的’。
