13. Egregious

Definition: (adjective) outstandingly bad;

Why use an adjective like β€œbad” when you could easily switch it out for a scholarly word like β€œegregious”!

This word is sure to impress your English teacher, so you should remember to use it in your next essay!

While there are a myriad of words that can replace β€œbad”, such as "dreadful", and "terrible", egregious is one of my favorite words!

It rolls off the tongue and makes you sound like a literary genius!

A sample sentence could be β€œThe author asserts that other solutions to the problem are simply egregious.”
