Do you collect words? Many writers do. I know a writer who carries a notebook with her and records luscious words she encounters so she can use them in the books she writes, and in fact her novels feature such a beautiful vocabulary they are a pleasure to read. Using just the right word in just the right moment provides a thrill for writer and reader alike.
“He was mad.” “He was mad!” “He was very mad.” “He was infuriated.”
“She was sad.” “She was really sad.” “She felt empty.”
Aren’t those bolded sentences stronger than the others? Don’t you understand him, and her, much better? And just as important, aren’t those sentences much more interesting? I want to know why she feels empty! The fact that he is infuriated injects energy into whatever surrounds that sentence.
It also becomes boring to read about red roses, “bright red” lipstick, or mocha skin, when there are so many brilliant color words! Take a trip to a paint store and look at the varied (and sometimes crazy) names of colors, but choose carefully. Sangria lipstick … well, both weird and confusing. Berry lipstick, yes. (See a whole bunch of color words below!)
Find words for specific emotions, evocative colors, and strong verbs to make your sentences alive in your readers’ minds. Another benefit of seeking stronger words is that you step outside cliche; alabaster skin is so commonly used for pale white skin that most people only think of skin when they hear or read the word alabaster, right? Boring, and you do not want to be a boring writer — obviously, because you’ve read this entire post.
Copy editing can not only enrich and elevate your writing, it can also be a kind of teacher! If you study careful, artful copy editing, you’ll learn where your writing tends to go soft and how to make it sing. I care a lot about good writing—I’m enthusiastic about it, exuberant about it—and also about helping my clients learn how to think critically about their own writing. Get in touch today to talk about your work and how we might collaborate to make it sing a little louder. Email me at email@example.com!

Hillary Clinton 97
Jobs were the top concern among Trump supporters. Dismayed by the state of the economy, many believed his business acumen and proposal to limit immigration would improve their own prospects.
We need change in tax reform, American-made jobs brought back to America, and that feeling of being a proud American.
Donald Trump is a captain of business and he thinks outside the box.
He will bring in common sense, bring our deficit down, control illegal immigration, and control the White House.
Disapproval of Hillary Clinton and disdain for the Washington establishment led many to call out Trump’s status as a political outsider.
Hillary can’t be trusted. The establishment on both sides can’t be trusted. They want to protect their turf and could care less what the people want.
Hillary Clinton should be in jail for what she has done. She is a phony, corrupt to the core, and an outright criminal.
Donald Trump is showing the people how to fight against the establishment.
What is Hillary going to bring that’s different from any other politician? …. At least there is something to look forward to with Donald Trump, albeit good or bad.
Trump supporters often mentioned hope and change, mirroring President Obama’s 2008 campaign slogan. Disappointed with the president, they suggested they are looking to Trump to actually “make America great again.”
I voted for Obama twice, but I support Trump.
He may be the only hope for America.
The political elite have had their run and now it’s time for a change, a significant and positive impact.
True Hope and True Change!
Many in the pro-Trump camp said they view him as a strong leader, regardless of his brash personality.
Donald Trump presents a strong front to our enemies and allies alike.
We need a strong leader and yes maybe a little bit of a bully regarding foreign policy. This country is in a shambles because of poor leadership and bold-faced lies.
He is the only candidate suitable for President. His win is absolute. He is controversial and a strong leader. All great leaders were controversial in the beginning.
What is the meaning of “strong word” in the following sentences? My understanding of the expression is the following: if a word is strong, it will have a great effect on people’s feelings or thoughts, it is a powerful word, it will have a great effect on someone. Is my understanding of the expression correct? Also, can you give me a better definition of the expression.
1. Mike: I hate my father. Greg: hate is a strong word.
2. You shouldn’t tell people they are ugly, ugly is a strong word.
3, A teacher should never tell his students that they are stupid, stupid is a strong word and telling students they are stupid will hurt their feelings.
4. Even is she is fat, it’s not nice to tell her she is fat. Fat is a strong word.
Yes, you’re completely right.. A strong word is that one leaving a great impact on others. In English we have strong words and mild ones. A mild word is a word that you can use in many different occasions without worrying that it may upset or bother someone. All the four examples that you’ve just given seem fine to me; I would use the ”strong word” expression in the same sentences that you wrote up there. Sometimes a strong word can be considered offensive but there’s still that fine line between strong words and offensiveness so definitely it’s not like ”swearing”.
yes, you understand the meaning of strong in that use. Strong as in severe, harsh, perhaps excessive. Extreme in meaning.
“I hate my mom”. “That is a bit extreme, you don’t really mean that”
Sort of means when something is said in terms of black and white when the reality is some shade of gray. Strong words do not leave much room for variation, for nuance, for shading the meaning.
I don’t particularly like the discouragement of the use of strong terms simply because they may cause hurt (as in number 3). Sometimes hurt is precisely what is required. Causing hurt is not the reason a teacher shouldn’t call someone stupid, it is because no student is really stupid and if they were, it would do no good to call them that anyway
I don’t consider fat a strong word. Disgustingly obese would be strong, harsh, excessive. Fat is simply the opposite of thin, and covers a wide range of conditions. Calling someone a PIG, or a COW, now maybe that would be a bit too strong.
And strong doesn’t always apply to negatives; calling someone brilliant or a genius could be too strong.
You sort of got it… Strong word can also mean it is an extreme ie using the term “morbidly obese” would make us think she’s bigger than saying she’s “fat” Hate is a strong word because it’s on the far end of the spectrum, it’s committed, and it leaves no room for doubt as to what you think. For instance if you say “I don’t like spinach.” it could mean “I love spinach.” “I dislike spinach” “I loathe spinach” or “I hate spinach”

How do you think about the answers? You can sign in to vote the answer.
A “strong word” (or phrase) is one that represents or evokes powerful emotions.
Such terms include love/hate, ugly/beautiful, brilliant/stupid, skinny/fat, live/die, rich/poor, as well as sex, fear, and political verbiage.
You have the correct understanding and definition of the phrase.
“Hate” has devolved into more of a dislike than anything. We should come up with a stronger word, perhaps di-hate?
Hate – have strong dislike of; bear malice to.
Ugly – unpleasing or repulsive to sight, morraly repulsive, vile, discreditable, unpleasant, unpleasantly suggestive, threatening, unpromising.
Stupid – in a state of stupor or lethargy; dull by nature, slow-witted, lacking in sensibility, obtuss, crass, characteristic of a person of this nature.
Fat – fed up for slaughter, fatted; well-fed,plump, corpulent, thick, substantial, greasy, oily, unctuous; slow witted, indolent.

Those words are all considered to some as having a negative connotation.

it means powerful. the entire sentence means that hate may be too intense (when used in this manner.) dislike would probably be better.

When people did this during a high-intensity cycling class, they were able to push harder for longer (up to 18 percent more), according to a study from Medicine & Science in Sports & Exercise. “Motivational self-talk, opposed to any kind of self-talk, works well for endurance performance because it reduces perception of effort, most likely through an increase in self-efficacy,” says Samuele Marcora, Ph.D., lead study author and professor of sport and exercise sciences at the University of Kent, Medway, in the United Kingdom. He adds that the rate of perceived exertion (RPE) in study subjects was reduced by 12 percent, enough to significantly increase performance.
Push Yourself Higher
Yet don’t think motivational self-talk is for endurance workouts alone. It also can be used to increase workload during high-intensity interval training.
It can even benefit you during competition, says Antonis Hatzigeorgiadis, Ph.D., associate professor in the Department of Physical Education & Sport Sciences at the University of Thessaly in Greece. For instance, his research has revealed that an eight-week self-talk training program and the use of self-talk in competition improved swimming times in young swimmers.
Want to reap the rewards of motivational self-talk? Follow these steps:
1) Identify your goals. This may seem obvious, but motivational self-talk won’t work unless you know what you want to achieve, Hatzigeorgiadis says.
2) Personalize your phrases. With your goal in hand, create a list of phrases that are meaningful and appealing to you. Keep them short, positive and motivational in nature, Marcora says. For instance, “drive forward” and “you’re doing well” worked well for participants in his study. Other research, by the way, has found that addressing yourself as “you” versus “I” is more effective.
3) Say it or think it. Whether you say these phrases out loud or think them isn’t important. The one caveat, though? “If you’re doing intense exercise, saying them out loud might be difficult and disturb your breathing,” Marcora says.
4) Time your talk right. It’s not just about what you say but when you say these phrases that matters. In Marcora’s study, participants used phrases that gave them confidence they could keep going longer during the middle part of the test effort. Phrases like “hang in there” and “feeling good” worked well. Yet as they approached the end when they were pushing at maximal effort, they used statements like “keep pushing” to help mobilize their effort.
5) Practice it. If you want motivational self-talk to help you during an actual competition, it has to be part of your training regimen. So sprinkle phrases that work well for you into your training sessions and use them consistently, Hatzigeorgiadis says.
