WORDS TO USE INSTEAD OF "VERY"

I use "VERY" all the time... and maybe only half of column #2...Do you?

Here is a short list.... But I found out - at list 147 words can be used instead.

 

Three Telling Quotes About ‘Very’

  1. “Substitute ‘damn’ every time you’re inclined to write ‘very;’ your editor will delete it and the writing will be just as it should be. ~Mark Twain
  2. “‘Very’ is the most useless word in the English language and can always come out. More than useless, it is treacherous because it invariably weakens what it is intended to strengthen.” ~Florence King
  3. “So avoid using the word ‘very’ because it’s lazy. A man is not very tired, he is exhausted. Don’t use very sad, use morose. Language was invented for one reason, boys – to woo women – and, in that endeavour, laziness will not do. It also won’t do in your essays.” ~N.H. Kleinbaum

Barbara Todaro Thanks. I'm not sure that I agree with you, but I appreciate that sentiment.

Nina Hollander - and you were correct. Just like everyone else, I can use a reminder now and then to keep from getting lazy.
