English Podcast Transcription Preview:
Amy: Hey guys, this is Amy and Curtis here. And we thought today we would discuss a topic that is pretty difficult, even for native speakers to talk about in a sensitive way. And that is talking about someone who has recently died.
Amy: To a family member or a close friend, somebody who knew that person.
Amy: That is probably suffering from a loss.
Curtis: Um-hum. Of some sort.
Amy: Yeah. Like they’re having some pain associated with that person not being in their life anymore.
Amy: So what is a common word, that…or a verb that we use instead of saying someone has died?
Curtis: Someone has passed away.
Amy: Yeah, or passed on.
Amy: Those are…those are really common. So when we do say to die though, it’s just…we use that more when we’re talking about someone that we didn’t know.
Curtis: Yeah, something less personal.
Amy: Yeah, so if it’s somebody, like you’re talking to somebody, and it was their relative or their friend, you’d probably want to use the word pass away.
Amy: But if it’s just talking about a news event that happened, like for example, there was a tragic1 accident on the highway, and three people died on scene, or whatever. You know, I guess you could say three people passed away, but it doesn’t…it doesn’t sound right.
