English language and literature discussion, revision, exam and homework help.
A bit nerdy but which words do you commonly use in essays to impress?
By (enter name here)...seems to be on most of my essays
I overuse the words 'thus' and 'conversely'.
"Using 'Thus' in an essay because you are a literary GOD"
implies, therefore, suggests
'Engender', 'Disquisition', I use 'Consequently' and 'Accordingly' often as well.
"Once upon a time..."
Love a cheeky bit of 'Concisely' 'Specific/Specifically' and 'Ergo'
Thus, ergo, one, I use God a lot because of my degree.
I seem to always want to repeat "However" when bringing up every argument I write.
I use 'the', 'an' and 'it' quite a lot but 'I' very rarely.
'so' or 'hence'
Cause it means i'm finally almost finished.
status quo and et al
'However', 'thus' and 'it could be argued that...' like to make regular appearances.
