Posts Tagged ‘descriptive words of the English language’

4 years ago, after the orange swamp thing was voted in (I mean seriously wtaf???) and entered The White House, I decided that unless it was the title of something like The Great Wall of China for example, I was not going to use the word ‘great’ to describe anything.

That awful aberration of a human used it for everything, and he revolted me, so I determined to avoid it.

I’ve been about 95% successful… occasionally the dreaded word has slipped out…much to my son-in-law’s amusement and he doesn’t let me hear the end of it 🤔🤔🤣🤣

Besides that, just about every TV presenter or chat show host, or quiz show host and the general public use the word ‘great’ to describe just about everything. Just watch the Breakfast Show in the morning on BBC1….the word ‘great’ is over used by all the hosts.

Enjoyable, amusing, amazing, fantastic, impressive, superb, stunning, admirable, lovely, splendid, tremendous, pleasant, thrilling, exciting, wonderful, exceptional, remarkable etc etc

We have literally hundreds of descriptive words in the English language, that with a bit of imagination and ingenuity, the word ‘great’ could be avoided.

I saw this gif the other day…thought I’d add it to the post 😁😁
