Saturday Mix – Same Same But Different, 11 August 2018

Welcome to the Saturday Mix, 11 August 2018!

This week we are diving into the depths of our thesaurus and exploring the world of synonyms. It’s my birthday tomorrow so we have a birthday themed set of words to work with…

Same Same But Different
Your ‘Same Same But Different’ task is to take the five challenge words and NOT use them in your writing. That’s right, you need to dig out your thesaurus and find a synonym for each word instead.

Your words this week are:

  1. present
  2. celebrate
  3. birthday
  4. older
  5. candle

Your writing form is either poetry or prose.

Synonym Searching
Synonyms are words that are similar, or have a related meaning, to another word. They can be lifesavers when you want to avoid repeating the same word or if your word might not be the most appropriate. You can search for synonyms online at: http://www.thesaurus.com/

You may be asking yourself, What are some examples of synonyms?
Luckily, the nice folks at YourDictionary have some for you…

Synonym Examples
Here is a list of adjectives and their synonyms that are commonly used to describe people…

Beautiful: attractive, pretty, lovely, stunning
