Take For Granted

September 13, 2017

こんにちは〜
仙台のプライベート英会話講師&翻訳者デイブです。

今日の話題は: One-point English

今日ある表現一つについて説明したいと思います。その表現は:

Take [X] for granted

皆さんは聞いたことがありますか?上の表現に入っている[X]は変えられる部分です。例えば:「take him for granted」又は「take it for granted」

「take for granted」の意味は人が他の人の努力やある状態の良さを気付かないでちゃんと認めないということです。簡単に言うと「take [X] for granted」= 「ちゃんと [X] を認めない」

例文:

1. The owner of my previous company was terrible. He took everyone for granted and believed he was responsible for any successes at the company.


2. My husband takes me for granted. He never says thank you and he doesn't help with anything around the house.

3. I really took my old job for granted. I had so much free time and I could wear anything I wanted. My new job is really tough and stressful and I have to wear a terrible uniform.

That's it!
