14 very interesting alternatives to very common adjectives

When writing in English, too often we tend to use the word “very” to intensify the adjectives we use.

This is not a good practice, though, and it is better to avoid using the word “very” in favor of more appropriate adjectives.

The English language is rich in beautiful words. We tend to use a simplified vocabulary, but we should not forget that there are plenty of amazing adjectives in this language that can express different tones and variations of emotion, feeling, and characteristics.

Let’s take a look at some of the most useful options!
