Indirect It is an adjective that indicates a path that, despite having a specific purpose, presents deviations, usually unnecessary. The term, originating in Latin indirectus, indicates certain detours before addressing what really matter or is intended.
Indirect behavior is characterized by not making clear the intentions of its author. This is very common in some cultures, but it also occurs in isolation in shy people, who do not trust themselves enough and avoid communication Direct and determined.
The indirect way of doing something is always more complicated than the direct one, since it requires a greater number of actions, or methods that do not guarantee to achieve the objectives set out in the first place. If someone wants to borrow a book, for example, there is no easier and safer way to get it than to ask the owner; There is the possibility of receiving a negative response, but at least there will be no misunderstanding.
A hint on the other hand it is a expression that allows to imply something without an explicit or clear reference. If at a party where everyone drinks soft drinks except one person who is drinking wine, someone says out loud “I can't stand those who drink too much and then say idiocy”, the phrase can only be directed to a individual , although it does not have a direct reference.
The hint is usually used as a means to offend someone, and can be expressed head-on or by talking with third parties. In the latter case, as exemplified in the previous paragraph, it is common that a high intensity of voice is used, with the objective that the phrase be heard by the person to be disturbed.
While this depends on the culture, the hint is usually a resource used mainly during adolescence, a stage in which fears invade us and we usually take refuge behind a fictional image when communicating with our environment. As we mature, human beings learn to respect our own defects and, in the best case, we begin to show ourselves as we really are, without fear of being rejected.
He sarcasm It is an indirect type of criticism that, very similar to the indirect one, seeks to become evident despite its characteristic lack of clarity and definition. A subtle difference with the indirect one is that sarcasm does not always refer to a person; Similarly, it does not necessarily mean to offend or attack someone. To cite a couple of cases, sarcasm can be used to express disagreement about the weather or the frustration of knowing that we have lost the train.
In the syntactic analysis, the indirect compliment or indirect object It is a constituent governed by a transitive verb, whose referent is a receiver of the action expressed by the verb. It is usually a person, although it can also be a thing. For example: "Your boss granted you the raise", "I remember lending the book to Pedro".
