There are seven colors in rainbows and countless dreams. It doesn’t take much. English is like that too. We start out with just a little bit of stuff and we mix it around to make all kinds of new things. One way we do this is with synonyms these are words that have the same meaning: big, large, giant. we use them to create subtle differences, nuance. Think about the difference between house and home. (Hint: Home is where the heart is- not where the house is.)
Maybe there are a lot of English words you don’t know, but you probably already know a word that means pretty much the same thing. That’s good. Use what you know. As you learn more you can be more creative and say things more….. beautifully.
