jaded Word cloud created through Wordart.com

Sometimes struggle to find the ‘right’ word for your writing? I do. Maybe, in trying to improve my own work, I can help other writers.

Today’s words: Jaded/Refreshed, Joined at the hip, Jealously, Judicial/Judicious, Jouska, Jackal.

Antonyms: words that express the opposite of other words can be hard to find, because thesauruses usually give no examples. When lost for such opposites, I reach for ‘The New Nuttall Dictionary of English Synonyms and Antonyms’ published 1986, which generally solves my dilemma.

Jaded/Refreshed:

Jaded: means dulled or sated by continual experience or indulgence, tired, worn out.

Refreshed: means reinvigorated, restored, revived, renewed, given a fresh appearance.

Usage for Jaded:

‘Giles had spent years prowling the seedier part of town, hunting street women for gratification. It was no surprise that, after so much time gorging on superficial pleasures, he felt jaded and unsatisfied with life.’

Usage for Refreshed:
