This is the final post in this series, which has dealt with words as Synonyms, Antonyms, Contronyms, Adverbs, Clichés, Redundancies, Plain-Language Alternatives for Wordy Phrases, Untranslatable Emotions, Words Often Misused and my own Delusional Dictionary. One of my regular readers suggested I should compile an index for the series, to help people find specific words covered. It’s a fairly big task, but one I’ve undertaken. I hope it’ll be useful for current and future visitors to the site.
Words are listed below with the date of the original post and a link to it. Alternatively, you can use this link to access the posts as a series.
Sorry it isn’t entirely in alphabetical order. When I started the series, I wasn’t sure how it would be received and had no specific plan. Over time, however, it developed into a slightly more formal and organised style.
What’s next? More posts about word use; words are, after all, our most fundamental tools. There’ll be a variety of short posts covering different aspects of the way we use words and how they might help our writing improve for the reader. And, since the title of this series has worked so well, I’ll change it by a single letter to ‘The Write Words?’. Watch out for it here each Friday.
