by on

“If you don’t want me to report you, you’d better tell the truth.”

Kamu pasti sering denger kalimat dengan kata ‘d better atau had better. Apa sih artinya?

Had better digunakan untuk mengungkapkan saran. Meskipun bentuknya adalah past tapi had better digunakan untuk memberikan saran di masa sekarang (present) atau masa depan (future).

Had better juga digunakan untuk memberikan saran untuk situasi yang spesifik. Jika ingin mengatakan saran yang umum lebih baik menggunakan should saja. Misalnya, you should talk nicely to older people.

Contoh:

  • You had better come before the meeting started or else the boss will  get mad.
  • You’d better talk to her in person and apologize.
  • We’d better go now because I don’t want to miss the opening.
  • I’d better not talk
  • She’d better not come than come but being a pain in the ass.

Had better juga biasanya memberikan kesan jika sarannya tidak diikuti maka sesuatu yang buruk (konsekuensi) akan terjadi.
