Có nên dùng tiếng Anh “văn vẻ”?

Posted on

Some words are found mainly in literature and poetry that is written in a grand or elevated style. Today, you also find this type of language used in the media, where it tends to be used to create a dramatic effect. Here are some examples of literary vocabulary:

standard English literary
kill slay
enemy foe
apart asunder
beautiful beauteous
die perish

It’s best to avoid this type of language in everyday contexts. It can sound self-conscious or pretentious and it’s likely to distract a reader or listener from what you trying to say.
