強調認可中肯定的最佳方法是什麼?


2

我想為某人寫一個背書。我有一行這樣開始:

"I have no doubt that ..."

但是我不喜歡"毫無疑問"的負面含義。我最好的選擇

"I am quite certain ..."

似乎沒有我想傳達的影響。有什麼建議嗎?

In this case, I would use something that's a little more succinct, but not negative:

Without question, [product/service/person is great].

This feels less negative to me because you aren't mentioning doubt, something that you don't want in an endorsement.

To endorse a person effectively, whether in an advertisement or a letter of recommendation, some strategies are to:

  • Describe positive traits
  • Avoid mentioning negative or irrelevant traits
  • Emphasize how strongly you support, recommend, or believe in the person and their ability

It's possible to do this last one powerfully by saying how little doubt you have: I have no doubt... or how sure you are: I am quite certain... (You might try removing "quite"; adding a modifier like quite to certain sometimes doesn't help. In this case, it might make you sound less confident, because it could leave the reader with a bigger feeling of doubt about whether you're as sure as you can possibly be, compared with just I am sure.)

Whichever way you prefer, try looking at some examples of recommendations, where you'll find constructions like these:

...and I recommend her to you without reservation... (sample recommendation letter)

I am confident that... ( sample recommendation letter)

My preference: Drop the introductory phrase altogether, and simply say whatever you were going to say.
