☆  incident 出来事


An incident is something that happens – usually just one time, and it is often unpleasant. When we use this word, it is generally a formal situation, such as a news report. However, it can be used in any personal situation too, especially when you don’t want to mention exactly what happened. Here are some examples to illustrate that:

The incident didn’t change her plans.
Their relationship was never the same after the incident.
He was worried that everyone knew about the incident.
She couldn’t get the horrible incident out of her mind.

So, as you can see, there is no specific information about the incident, so if someone said this to you and you didn’t know what had happened, then you would need to ask for details. You could simply say, “Oh, what happened?”
