Power Words

Impress everybody with power words

Just a little change of words here and there can turn an ordinary sentence into a convincing one. Learning power words is not as difficult as learning a new language. You already know English and you already know the words you need to use in order to communicate. The only thing to do is to replace ordinary words with powerful words. A good selection of power words can be found in the vocabulary building software Ultimate Vocabulary.

What are power words?

Powerful words are words that create a dominant image or an impression in our minds. Words such as bravery, hurt, sacrifice, worship, justice etc. generate a strong impression whereas words like hill, sea, paper, water, stairs etc. remain passive. That is because we associate feelings and actions with powerful words.

‘Push-Button Technology’ and ‘Killer Sales’ are powerful words. Most writers use these kind of words where they bring together two entirely disparate objects in a simile for effect. People enjoy it because it’s novel. You can also create words such as these to impress people with your innovativeness and cleverness.

You can pick up powerful words from the Internet or coin some of your own. An excellent selection of powerful words are available in the vocabulary software Ultimate Vocabulary . Memorize them and use them while talking. You can be sure it will create a good impression. Writing is much easier, as you can stop, think and revise what you have written.

Use positive, active, potent words loaded with emotions. Words such as dedicated, faith, creative, enterprising, sharp, efficient etc. will do great in a resume. Choose which powerful words suit your needs and sprinkle them into your writing and speech accordingly.
