史上最勁的求職信

在1934年,紐約有一個叫做羅伯特皮洛許的人寫了一封非常精彩的求職信給各種導演,製片人,最後獲得了三次面試機會並成為米高梅電影製作公司的初級編輯。而這封求職信可以稱得上是史上最好最有效的求職信,讓我們一起看看你認得裡面多少英文單字。

Dear sir,

I like words.

I like fat buttery words,such as ooze(湧出),turpitude(墮落),glutinous(粘糯),toady(諂媚).

I like solemn,angular,creaky words,such as straitlaced(古板),cantankerous(脾氣古怪),pecunious(富得流油),valedictory(告辭).

I like spurious,black-is-white words,such as mortician(殉葬專業者),liquidates(清算),tonsorial(理髮的),demi-monde(風月場).

I like suave V words,such as Svengali(斯文加利,指為達不當目的控制別人的人),svelte(苗條優雅的)bravura(精湛技藝),verve(激情).

……

I like the word screenwriter better than copywriter,so I decided to quit my job in a New York advertising agency and try my luck in Hollywood,but before taking the plunge I went to Europe for a year of study,contemplation and horsing around.

I have just returned and I still like words.

May I have a few with you?

Robert Pirosh

是不是覺得自己的詞匯量非常低?其實這些那你覺得陌生的單字對於native speaker來說都是非常陌生的,並不用過度擔心啦!
