今週の #WOTW は 'merry’ です。’Merry’ is an adjective. You’ve probably heard it in phrases like ‘Merry Christmas!’ recently, but wouldn’t you like to use it more than just once a year? Well, see below!
- We wish you a Merry Christmas, we wish you a Merry Christmas, we wish you a Merry Christmas, and a Happy New Yeeeaaar. (Cheerful and lively.)
- Merry people were dancing at the carnival. (See above.)
- I feel quite merry after just one drink. (This is informal. It means to be slightly and good-humouredly drunk.)
Let’s have a look at a couple of sentences now.
- [the more the merrier] You’re bringing how many people?! Okay, the more the merrier, I guess… (The more people or things there are, the better a situation will be.)
- [go on one's merry way] You can try to talk her out of it, but she’ll go on her merry way. (This is informal. It means to carry on with a course of action regardless of the consequences.)
- [make merry] Everybody was having a good time, making merry. (Enjoy oneself with others by dancing and drinking.)
