The today’s word I’ve chosen to explain is superstition.
Some people are superstitious which means that they believe in things which are not scientifically explainable.
- “I won’t go out of my house on Friday 13th, I’m sure something bad will happen!”
- In the US in most buildings the 13th floor is left out in order to avoid unlucky incidents.
Well, you see and you maybe identify yourself as a superstitious person.
Here’s a song about superstition by Stevie Wonder:
Excertp from the lyrics:
“When you believe in things,
that you don’t understand,
then you suffer,
superstition ain’t the way”
Well, this is what I tried to explain at the beginning.
ain’t = us-slang that means is not
to suffer = feel pain / to feel uncomfortable / to feel very bad because of something (an illness “suffer from …”)
