☆ express 表現する
Today’s word is about showing what you think or feel. If you express an idea or feeling well then others around you can understand what you feeling. Although it is an everyday word, it is often used in formal situations, especially when you want to express sympathy. For example, at a funeral, you might say something like these to the family and relatives of the person who died:
I wish to express my condolences.
Please let me express my sincere sympathy to you (and your family).
I’m very sorry for your loss. Words cannot express my feelings.
Of course, you can use “express” in everyday conversation, too! However, it is a word you’ll most commonly hear relating to people expressing sympathy.
