如何有逼格的表达"important"? 更新日期:2017-01-17 编辑:爱语吧

无论何种类型的写作考试,我们都会频繁的说到某一个东西很重要。这其实很好理解。当我们在开头表明了立场支持某一个东西(暂且看成A)后,如果想证明我们的立场肯定要写A很重要,因为A对X有好处。比如环境很重要,因为它影响大家的健康;再比如钱很重要,因为它可以用来改善生活质量等等;因此,A对于X很重要这样的表达可以说是写作中最重要的表达,没有之一。

  sine qua non
 
  解释
 
  这个词字面上解释“Without which, not.”。也就是说“Without(A),(X)won’t be possible.”没有A的话X是不可能的,自然就可以理解成A是X的前提或者A对于X至关重要。
