Example sentences using "Anxious"

Q: Please show me example sentences with anxious.
A: Anxious
→「緊張する・心配する」

Anxiousは、「不安」を意味するanxietyから来る言葉であり、心配や懸念、気がかりである場合に使います。

この表現は心配を含む緊張の場合に使うことが多く、単純な緊張の場合は、上記のNervousを使う方が多いです。

Anxiousにはあまりにも緊張や心配をし過ぎてジッとしていられず、胸騒ぎがしたり、貧乏ゆすりしたり、そわそわと行ったり来たりするなど、様々な身体症状が起こることがあります。

また、「I’m anxious to learn the results of the test. (試験の結果を早く知りたい)」など「結果待ちの緊張感から早く逃れたい」場合にも使えます。

例えば、長年片思いをしていた女性と、5年ぶりに再会するとしましょう。

そんな時に「I’m anxious to see her.」が使われ、彼女に会うことをすごく不安に思い緊張している反面、早く会いたい気持ちが混ざりあっているニュアンスになります。

心配の気持ちが含まれる、「ネガティブな」緊張を指す。

最近、アメリカ人の日常会話では「〜が待ちきれない」「〜と会うのが楽しみ」のように、ポジティブな緊張感を表す際、anxiousが使われるようになってきている。

定義上、このような状況ではeagerやexcitedを使うのが適切です。

Eagerは楽しみで待ちきれないポジティブな緊張感のニュアンスがあるのに対し、anxiousは心配の気持ちでいっぱいのネガティブな緊張感を表します

しかし、時代と共に言葉の意味と使い方が変化していく中、日常会話で「ポジティブな緊張感」を表現する時でもanxiousが使われるようになってきました。

The interview didn’t go well and I’m anxious about the result.
