Cum exprimam o critica, sau un repros in engleza?

Folosim anumite verbe modale (can, could, might sau should/shouldn’t) pentru a exprima o critica, un repros, faptul ca nu suntem de acord cu ceva si pentru o evaluare sau analizare a ceva, de exemplu a unei lucrari.

Trebuie sa tinem cont de faptul ca, atunci cand criticam, putem supara putin, de aceea este nevoie de cateva expresii de politete, cu care sa incepem “critica” noastra.

Criticise sau criticize este un verb care inseamna:

  1. a judeca ceva sau pe cineva cu o dezaprobare in inteles, to judge(something) with disapproval; censure
  2. a evalua sau a analiza ceva, to evaluate or analyse something

Folosind verbele can, could, might sau should/shouldn’t + infinitive, facem referire ori la prezent, ori la viitor astfel:

(Can, could, might and should/shouldn’t + infinitive can be used in order to express criticism, reproach or some disapproval for to present or future time):

  1. Facem referire la prezent: 

Schema este: Could, might and should/shouldn’t + infinitiv

You can be mean sometimes, you know! 
You shouldn’t drink so much Cola!
You might be more hard-working.

Why are you yelling? You can speak nice to your parents too!

She might pay more attention to her homework!

2. In cele mai multe cazuri, criticam ceva ce s-a intamplat deja, deci facem referire la trecut.

Schema este: Could, might and should/shouldn’t + have + Past Participle

Could, might and should/shouldn’t + perfect infinitive can be used in order to express criticism, disapproval or reproach for something in the past:

should have talked to him earlier, now…..
You shouldn’t have spoken to your parents like that!
You might have told me you needed help!
