Topic: Categorization of words based on usage.
Posted: Thursday, March 4, 2010 12:59:29 PM
Hi,

I am wondering someone could point me, some links or articles, which would help me find group of words based on usage/action. For example, i read an article where it talks about making your article beautiful by bringing different versions of a word, so that every sentence gets a fresh look and also apply more sense. Here is what one can utilize different words to mean the word - "say".

Talk
shout
whisper
state
inform
query
reason
question
declare
ask
proclaim
scream
mutter
emphasize
conclude
remark
converse

What i'm looking similar categorizations of words like - "talk" , "write" etc. or anything that helps you to write better with appropriate words.

Thanks, Prince

Topic: When to use "un" & "in"?

Hi,

I've this doubt on using "un" & "in". Usually i've observed that some great authors do not use "not", if they want to negate something, rather they use "un" or "in" as prefix. and it looks good to.

Is there any standard rule for using these prefixes?

Thanks, Prince

Topic: Never use two past tenses simultaneously

I was reading the following line, and the writer said - "Never use two past tenses simultaneously." I'm not sure why it is wrong. Please advice.

"I didn't know, you were so good at dancing."

Thanks in Advance.
Topic: Other way to write this?

Is there any other way to write this -

"He said that, he would be coming home tonight." To me mention of "he" twice seems to be odd. Any idea?

Thanks in Advance.

These are the lines from a novel named "Dear John" by Nicholas Sparks.

"I know he loved me by the way he devoted himself to my care, but he was forty three when he had me, and part of me thinks my dad would have been better suited to being a monk that a parent."

In the book, the narrator, is speakeing out of his memory, but i am wondering why he is using present tense, for past actions. Any reason? Isn't it better if everything would have been in past?

Thanks. Prince
