English term or phrase: toast, roast or coast
Ovo je podnaslov jednog poglavlja, a budući da je u pitanju beletristika, nema baš neki kontekst.

Croatian translation:Veličati, poniziti ili kliziti
Explanation:
U ovisnosti da li se pisac obraća čitaocima, ili samo meditira, alternativa može biti ( style) :

"Veličaj, ponizi ili klizi ( se opusti) "

Pojašnjenje:

amerikanizam, savremeni američki idiomi ( contemporary US English)

toast = slavni, veliki, oni koji se veličaju -" celebrity"
roast = praviti porugu, parodiju, poniziti ( isključivo slavne) ( Show)

coast = kao glagol znači lagano ploviti uz obalu, pa sam našla " klizi" kao rješenje koje se rimuje ( pošto je i u originalu rima) i uklapa u kontekst, a evo zašto:

Smatram da se vaša pisac obraća čitaocima ( motivacijska knjiga), tako da im govori da gledaju na ljude, situacije na sljedeće načine :

krotko = veličaj
sa visine = ponizi, rugaj se
pusti sve svojim tokom = klizi ( opusti se)

primjeri za toast and roast : Frank Sinatra Roast ili Brintney Spears Roast(Show)
