相関関係に注意して、次の英文を読む。

Two congenial people get to know each other so well that they find it easy to communicate with each other. After they have shared many common experiences and have been to many places together, they often find that they have developed a kind of special language. One word will stand for a whole situation; one phrase or gesture will indicate an entire mood when it has grown out of mutually shared experience.

When such a communication system is established between them, they find it easy to share all sorts of confidences. Each comes to know how the other feels about things and what he or she means by certain phrases and expressions. They become so well acquainted with all the things that are important to each other that they do not have to back up and lay the foundation for any new development.
