The word FAME and the adverb JUST
hI! How are you?
E.X.He is hungry for fame and he just gets it(=fame) cheating
1.- I know there´s a verb to mean get fame which is
get ahead, not?.
But, can I use 'get fame' instead of that one?
Well, i really used the pronoun 'it'´cause I said
2.- Is ´just´used correctly here to mean
'cheating is the only way for him to get fame'?
Or should I use another adverb?
Thanks a million!
Re: The word FAME and the adverb JUST
1- It doesn't work with 'gets fame' for me, but with the pronoun, it's fine, though I'd say 'gets it by cheating'. 'Just' is fine- it doesn't have to mean 'only' here, but is a way of emphasing the negative view of the way he gets it- it shows how little he cares.
