WOTW: meditate

| - Gorka Dieitz-Sanxurxo |

triplo word of the week - meditate

 

今週の #WOTW は 'meditate’ です。’Meditate’ is a verb and a phrasal verb. The original meaning is ‘to measure’, which makes sense, especially in the second example sentence below. Let’s have a look!

:

- I meditate 20 minutes every day, which won’t make me reach Nirvana, but it helps to get me through my day. (Focus one's mind for a period of time, in silence or with the aid of chanting, for religious or spiritual purposes or as a method of relaxation.)

- You need to meditate it carefully before you decide. (Plan mentally; consider.)

:

The phrasal verb comes next.

:

- [meditate on/upon] I will have to meditate on what you have just said. Give me some time. (Think deeply about something.)

発音は/ˈmɛdɪteɪt/です。音節は3個で、後ろに「と」とか「お」などの音しないようにしましょう。また来週!
