Today’s Word: lack

January 5, 2018 =========

☆  lack 不足している


Lack can be used as either a noun or a verb. Today we’re using it as a verb, meaning that someone or something lacks a quality – in other words they do not have it. Here are some example sentences:

She is a great person, but for some reason she lacks self-confidence.
I need to find a new job; my current one is repetitive and lacks variety.

When you use lack as a noun, for example, there is a lack of something, it means that there is not enough of that thing or it doesn’t exist at all. For example:

I hated the lack of privacy of sharing a room with my sister.
We lost the game because we lacked a good strategy for winning.

Is there anything you are lacking in your life right now? How can you bring that thing into your life more?
