When teaching English, I often come across the same words being used so often, like 'big'.

Building vocabulary makes the language so much more beautiful and interesting. I'm tired of hearing the word 'big' - I've already mentioned it twice in this post - so here are some other options, beginning with the letter "G":

  1. Giant
  2. Great
  3. Gigantic
  4. Grand
  5. Ginormous
  6. Gargantuan

And there are many more words including:

  • colossal
  • astronomic
  • huge
  • large
  • enormous
  • humongous
  • massive

So please, go ahead and expand your vocabulary. And whatever you do, don't say 'big!'

What's your pick of these 'large' words?

Ginormous, of course!

When I was teaching writing, "BIG" was one of my "forbidden words" because I wanted students to be more specific. Too many people use "big" to describe importance rather than size.

I personally like astronomic.
