The Daily Post | Sounds Right


This is clearly subjective, but some words really sound like the thing they describe (personal favorites: puffin; bulbous; fidgeting). Do you have an example of such a word (or, alternatively, of a word that sounds like the exact opposite of what it refers to)? What do you think creates this effect?


Ever thought of the words that were considered overused? I’ve read this somewhere, and I guess it’s very true.


1. Sorry

One word isn’t hard to say, right? The thing that makes this a special word is that it must be said with conviction. You should mean it when you say it. Unfortunately, it becomes one of those unused words that were spoken for the sake of saying something.


2. Love

How sure are you that you love that person? Isn’t more appropriate to say you LIKE him/her in some other ways? Love is such a complicated word, fellas. Don’t just sat that word to those who don’t deserve that.



I guess that’s it for today. Check other blogs I linked below and see their awesome responses! :D
