    The word “very” is VERY unnecessary. Or should I say, redundant: Poster Series

    As said by Robin Williams in the 1989 American drama…

    All I can say is that the man who devised this saying was a genius…  The word “very” originates from the Latin word meaning true. It has been used as a point of emphasis for very long in the slanged English. But slang only goes so far in a mature world…

    A woman would appreciate “Splendid” as a compliment to her looks over “Fucking hot”. And it’s not that difficult, really.

    Most words are already there in your head, just need to be coaxed out.

    So here are 14 posters created by ED that will help you replace the ‘very’ word from your vocabulary…and create an impression: 

    very poor=destitute very smart=brilliant very roomy=spacious very quiet=silent very old=ancient very bright=dazzling very capable=accomplished very afraid=terrified very angry=furious very chilled=liberal very clean=spotless very beautiful=exquisite very big=immense very cold=freezing

    Believe it or not, but DO try it.

    Next time you need to present yourself, even if casually, do it well, not “very nicely”, and you will see the results transform!
