Sometimes we want to add emphasis to what we feel or do. Perhaps we don’t want to just tell someone “I love you”, but “I love you very much.” Maybe we don’t want to just describe “I work hard”, but “I work very hard.”有時我們想強調我們的的感覺或是所做的事。也許我們不想告訴別人“我愛你”,而是“我非常愛你”,也許我們不只想描述“我努力工作”,而是“我非常努力地工作”。

Very is a commonly used word in the English language that works as a superlative, a word that adds length, weight, boldness, and an emphasis to an adverb.“very”是英語中最常用的一個詞,用作最高級,是一個增加副詞長度、重量、粗體表示強調的詞。

Sometimes though, if we use very too often (i.e. “I love this very much”; “I ran very fast”; “I worked very hard”), it can become redundant. If you use the same word over and over, it can lose its meaning; it can lose its value.但有時,如果我們使用very太頻繁(例如,“我非常喜歡這個”;“我跑得很快”;“我很努力”),它可能會變得多余。如果你一次又一次地使用同一個詞,它會失去它的意義;它會失去它的價值。

Sometimes, telling someone seriously, “I love you,” holds more weight than saying “I love you very much.” This can be avoided by selectively choosing when to use “very”, and only using it when you truly mean it. This overuse can also be avoided by adding variety to your language.有時,認真地告訴某人,“我愛你”,比說“我非常愛你”更重要。這可以通過有選擇地選擇何時使用“非?!眮肀苊?,只有當你真正認真地使用它時才使用它。這種過度使用也可以通過增加語言的多樣性來避免。

There are many very synonyms to use in place of very that add diversity and color to the way we speak or write, and perhaps some synonyms are more fitting for what we mean to say than just “very”.有很多同義詞可以用來代替very,這增加了我們說話或寫作的方式的多樣性和色彩,也許有些同義詞比“very”更適合我們所說的意思。
