今週の #WOTW は 'regret’ です。'Regret’ is a verb and a noun. Go ahead and have a read. You won’t regret it!
First, the verb.
- I regretted not going to the party. My friends say I missed a good one. (Feel sad, repentant, or disappointed over something that one has done or failed to do.)
- I regret to inform you that you didn’t get the job. (Used in polite formulas to express apology for or sadness over something undesirable.)
- Do you regret your country? (Old fashioned or literary. Feel sorrow for the loss or absence of something pleasant.)
Time for the noun now.
- I’ve made a lot of mistakes in my life, but I have no regrets. (A feeling of sadness, repentance, or disappointment over an occurrence or something that one has done or failed to do.)
- I can’t go. Please give the host my regrets. (Used in polite formulas to express apology for or sadness at an occurrence or an inability to accept an invitation. Often as “one’s regrets”, so my, your, her… etc.)
