good descriptive words for english gcse?Watch
does anybody have some really good words to use for a GCSE english descriptive writing. Those words that are to do with taste, smell, touch and just general descriptive words.
There's plenty of good ones.
Also, does anybody know where the large majority of marks are awarded for these tasks?
Since you asked for some words, here are some of my favourites:
Acrid, soporific, peevish, grime, ripple, cacophony, baleful, clamour.
Combined with plenty of onomatopoeia, naturally.
i would just like to know good words which could be used in any context.
SECONDLY, long words rarely help writing because of three reasons: 1) they're usually used wrong 2) they can sound as if you're trying too hard 3) no one really uses really long words, because they break often break the description/flow of the piece.
don't focus on the words, but rather the overall description. make it simple but evocative, using similes and metaphors etc...

the ones in CAPS are my personal favourites. good luck!
If you want to find synonyms of those words once you have expanded your vocabulary, you need a thesaurus, dear.
I have done GCSE english, and I did do well. I know the difference between a dictionary and a thesaurus thanks, dear.
