[Motivation]
인생을 살면서 우리는 어떤 현상이나 사물에 대해 판단을 많이 내린다.
예를들어,
  • (노부부가 손잡고 걸어가는 모습을 보며) “That’s love”
  • (어떤 아름다운 작품을 보고) “That’s a masterpiece”
  • (체벌이 도가 지나치는 것을 보고) “That’s child abuse”
이런 식으로 말이다. 이런 문장을 확고하게 전달하고 싶을 때는 (특히 펀치라인으로) 어떻게 할까?
  1. That’s definitely love
  2. That’s really a masterpiece
  3. That’s definitely child abuse
등으로 Naive하게 부사를 써서 표현할수도 있지만, 스타일있게 재미있게 표현하는 방법이 있으니..
