triplo word of the week - hoax

 

今週の #WOTW は 'hoax’ です。’Hoax’ is a noun and a verb, as well as something we want to stay away from if it’s not done in good humour. Let’s have a look at the noun first.

:

- It’s easy to see it was a hoax now, but it was so well put together that we all believed it. (A humorous or malicious deception.)

- Princess Mako is not working at a konbini. That’s a hoax. (She above.).

:

Time for the verb.:

:

- What? You have a boyfriend? Well I’ve been hoaxed! (Trick or deceive someone).

- Why did you hoax him into believing he got accepted into the team? That’s just cruel. (See above.)

:

発音は/həʊks/です。1音節だから、後ろには「う」を言わないようにしてください。「ホ・ク・ス」じゃなくて、「ホks」です。でも、「ホ」の「オ」は弱くて、schwaという音なので、気をつけましょう。また来週!
