When someone says "awesome" I'm looking around for mountains...or one of the other Wonders of the World... I'm hoping we can come up with something more apt and much cooler.
It's time that made a comeback. Yeah, man.
Yeah, I can think many words to replace an overused word like "awesome".
"I saw the most wonderful thing today, I was fascinated by it!" :)
I prefer fantastic
Always good. Or combining fabulous along with it...fantabulous.
I sometimes say that but not often and I ain't sure why. It is a rather good word.
It is good...sometimes fantastic - and I love that word - but sometimes it sounds like a window cleaner...
That would be a great name for one that is for sure
You know he's gay, riight? Not that there is anything wrong with that.... I just find it interesting that you identify with a gay man.
Yogapants is good.
I never say "Awesome" ...Maybe, Nice.
I like it...
How 'bout outrageous... You can than say: totally 'rage, man!
Totally sub, man!
"Why are you OzSurfering so much these days?"
"I'm suffering from acute constipation."
I freakin' zonkeyballs you, mate.
Call. I have six VicZincs.
Can you beat my hand, dude?
Oh, I forgot. I also have a John in my spare trousers.
I hope you don't have a Canadian flush.
Splendid, extraordinary, divine, outstanding, spectacular, fantastical... $10 vocab words can be equally tiring.
Prodigious, stunning, surprising, amazing, formidable, mind-blowing, breathtaking, .......
So...if I was saying: that outfit you are wearing is....
What word would you use? To replace "awesome"?
Lol, if talking about an outfit, I would be hesitating between amazing, prodigious and wonderful (or: "... looks great") - depending on the circumstances.
I guess what I was going for was a replacement of the word awesome...so that it could describe something really nice! But not be the word "awesome" Awesome, as a word, should stick to describing mountains...spectacular paintings...we need a new, hip word that can take the place of "awesome"....
As a word...I get the feeling that "awesome" has been mocked.
Do you understand? I know I'm not describing it very well...
Sometimes I think the word could be stunning...as stunning could describe clothes...and it is also a hip word. As in your new front door is stunning! as in, it was so nice it stunned me. Whereas "awesome" is overdescriptive....
What do you think, Marianne? Dear Marianne.
Dear Sukiesnow, yes, there are too many ways of describing things, and, no, I don't think that your description is bad. But I referred to stunning too, as there are many synonyms for awesome (which seems to be "overused"); it can be surprising, impressive and outstanding too. Amazing is much used. But, if I understand well, you are looking for a specific, less known description. Do you want to refer to something, which is simply nice, pleasant or delightful? Or do you prefer it to be exceptional, or tremendous, (formerly) "terrific", or "ginormous"? Or are you looking for a creation, a new expression?
Sometimes, there is a "but", when, for instance, a very beautiful outfit is used in the wrong surroundings or for the wrong purposes ...
Lol - that explains a lot indeed.
Outstanding, incredible, amazing, fabulous, ridonculous,
Excellent...perhaps too many syllables for youth to pronounce... Unless they could modify it to something like: "mag" or "magni"....like oh hey...this place is mag man....
Haha! Yes I suppose you're right that is too much for some youth to pronounce. Pethaps just the letter 'M' then 😋
I don't hate you.
Fabulous! Extraordinary! Brilliant! Sublime! Or perhaps a combination of all three...
It's you that's brilliant.
