But, what exactly does it mean? Does the word "pure" mean "complete"? Is it equal to "excellent enjoyment"?
Any comments would be helpful, thanks! Any rephrasing of the sentence will be even more helpful.
Ter:The word "pure" is used for emphasis (emotive language). When we say something is pure, it implies that "that something" is at its best. It doesn't have any impure elements in it. Think of a diamond. A pure diamond would be just pure diamond without any other substances. Pure water is water that isn't polluted. So when we say "pure entertainment", it means it's entertainment at its best. You won't be disappointed by anything.
"Pure entertainment", you'd say it's the usual advertising language.
So, can I express the same meaning with "People go to Australia for the best enjoyment."?
Or "People go to Australia for complete satisfaction."
Or what would you suggest?
Ter:"best enjoyment" sounds unnatural to me...... Maybe "greatest / great enjoyment".
"complete satisfaction" sounds ok, but "great" might be better. "Complete" usually implies something in a certain context, but the context here is more general than specific.
