  1. Did you come up with this list or did you google
    to get this list. I know you are a word girl and
    this is useful. This could be a very useful aid
    for the not so wordy people. You could publish
    A book with lists of words. You are so smart.


    1. I searched a few sources but I picked the most reliable on Thesaurus.com and picked from two of their lists. Synonyms for the words bad and terrible. To be completely honest, the replacements for terrible, had much more flavor. And thank you, you’re so sweet.


  2. Wow! That’s a handy list. I tend to be a lazy writer and just click the thesaurus button in word to find substitutes, but I’ll have to refer back to this one!


  3. It’s really a nice and useful piece of information. I am satisfied that you shared this helpful
    information with us. Please keep us informed like this.
    Thank you for sharing.
