[TahlilGaran] Collocations Dictionary

Choosing the right word: GENERAL WORDS and EXACT WORDS
Some words have a general meaning, e.g. big, beautiful, good, say, make, kill . These words are useful, especially when you begin to learn English, because you can make use of them in a wide range of situations:
A big meal, a big kitchen, a big mistake etc
For each general word, however, there is usually another word or phrase which comes closer to what you want to say, and which may also sound more natural in the context:
A substantial meal, a spacious kitchen, a serious mistake etc
A major step towards fluency in English is getting to know plenty of exact words which can replace the more general words you have learned. Here are some words which can be used instead of the general word kill .
