“Oh my. Space travel sound rather perilous*. I can assure you they will never get me on one of those dreadful Star Ships.”
C-3PO – The Phantom Menace
Perilous comes from the word ‘peril’ which means “serious and immediate danger”. It means full of danger or risk!
The trip to that side of the mountain is perilous, are you sure you know what you’re doing?
Bezakan dengan peri-peri. Itu sos.
“You may dispense with the pleasantries*, Commander. I am here to put you back on schedule.”
Darth Vader – Return of the Jedi
Pleasantries is the plural for pleasantry, something you say in a conversation that’s not important, but you say it anyway to be polite and to keep the conversation going.
I hated the meeting, it has too many pleasantries, we only started talking about the project after an hour!
Itu pleasantry, okay? kalau “pleasant tree”, itu pokok yang buat awak senang hati.
“Death is a natural part of life. Rejoice* for those around you who transform into the Force.”
Yoda – Revenge of the Sith
“Rejoice”. You probably know this as a shampoo brand. But it really means to show great joy or delight. When something really good happens, you rejoice. It’s like a celebration… without the celebration.
I know your test scores are bad, but rejoice because Star Wars is premiering tomorrow!
“So this is how liberty dies. With thunderous* applause.”
Padmé Amidala - Revenge of the Sith
As you can guess, it obviously comes from the word ‘thunder’ – very strong, loud noise.
The cheers were thunderous after Selangor scored their second goal!
