Hi everyone, I have a very limited vocabulary and therefore I am trying to extend it so I am able to use a some diverse and variety of word in essays as I often find myself becoming an innocent target of repetition. If anyone knows or is familiar with some extraordinary words or even perhaps some simple yet good words, it will be really appreciated. Thank You.

Use exacerbate for negative exaggeration. I love that word.
Use insinuate for suggestions, rather than a word like 'imply'.

There are tones of fantastic words out there. I'd advise you read more complex novels that utilise sophisticated language.
