The cool tool recommendation this week wins the prize for the most interesting title!
Lose the Very is a web-based tool designed to help writers find alternative words and phrases to use in place of the word “very.” The tool operates on the premise that using “very” is often seen as lazy or imprecise, and that finding more descriptive words and phrases can help improve writing.
To use the tool, users simply type in the word they want to replace (in this case, “very”) and hit the “Find” button. The tool then generates a list of alternative words and phrases, along with their definitions and example sentences. Users can scroll through the list to find the word or phrase that best fits their needs.
In addition to its main functionality, the tool also features a built-in thesaurus and dictionary, which users can access by clicking on the corresponding tabs. The tool is free to use and does not require any sign-up or login.
It’s a super little tool to improve your writing and I highly recommend you check it out.
