Word choice

  1. 1. Word Choice
  2. 2. Especially in college and work writing, it’s important to choose your words carefully. Be aware of the following common problems in word choice: Vague words: words that are too general to make an impression. Examples include a lot, awesome, bad, good, nice, and very. Slang: informal language. Examples include chill for relax or dis for disrespect. Wordy language: using more words than necessary to get your point across. Examples include as a result of instead of because and at this point in time instead of now. Clichés: phrases used so often that people no longer pay attention to them. Examples include easier said than done and work like a dog.
