As writers, every one of us on this site try to find words that are a step apart from the most over-used words you often see on the web. Problem is, we have these words programmed into our minds and tend to use them as reflex. Although a thesaurus is a good way to break that mold, thankfully, some websites do the hard work for us so we don't have to.

Just English assembled a list of synonyms for the 96 most commonly used words in English, and you don't have to be a writer to appreciate it. These words can even help you sound more fluid and less cliche' in conversations. We all use the word bad quite often, but have you ever called your Brussels sprouts "ghastly"? Well, now you can and impress all the fellow Brussels sprout haters around you as well.

The fact is, this language is a gift and we often scoff at it or misuse it. This list helps switch up your thinking when it comes to that.

Do you know how much longer it would take to text "ghastly" instead of "bad?" And that's not even taking into consideration the need to spell it correctly! I am way too busy trying to drive to worry about whether I use a creative or a common word in my texts! I mean really! ;-)
