What Is a “Power Word,” Exactly?

It sure is paying off for me. What can i say, Jon is good with the words. Thanks again and hope you have a great day or evening. Your headings are irresistible! I challenge the young and inexperienced to stay away…lol!

Jon, a great post! Tony Robbins also refers to power words. I never thought of it that way before. Maybe having worked in the corporate world, authentic seems more audacious to me. Now, I am going to have to change the tagline for my site. I love the concept of juxtaposition and confluence. Other words I love are those that convey a transitory magical feeling — elusive, evanescent, fleeting. These are delightful would that be a power word?

I have a few to add if I may: Re the staggering importance of power words. Now your evil list will quadruple the experience, no doubt about it. Hence my recession-proof thanks. But I see Your Gifted Awesomeness by now is getting over-powered or disgustingly bored — likely both. So let me hurriedly take quick leave … by crookedly adding the only other intelligent list of power words in my trusted hands is from Tony Robbins [Unleash the Giant Within].

He lists words in two columns: Cannot reproduce it here — whoppingly true — because I only have it as a guaranteed jpg file.

But if anyone wants the bonanza of a copy, just holler and make sure it includes your prized email, and a power word or two: Tony Robbins first gave me insight into the power of this word. Years later, Brian Clark reminded me. This is a really great list. I have been working on improving my writing and this should really help.

Thank you for posting this. What an impressive and powerful list of perfectly categorized word groups! Like all those before me, I copied this into a word doc including most of the comment lists for even more reference material!

Thanks for not including curse words. It might work, but it will probably just make someone really angry at you for using it. Jon, I love your article and your list of power words is incredible. I am sure I will be using it all the time. Thanks for sharing your knowledge with us. Everything we do in life relates to our emotions. What this list of words does is help us to communicate better as writers and capture those emotions from our readers.

I offer my sincere appreciation for this list and will be sure to keep it in a safe place along with sharing this great article. I am a great believer in power words and write and rewrite constantly before posting. Thanks for your list. I will add to mine. I worry about this type of guide as it lacks so much that is fundamental to the craft of good writing, such as pace, tempo and punctuation. If painting were a metaphor, it would say: Use the colour red.

I see so many bloggers applying similar rules while ignoring the power of developing their own style and voice. It is the only way to truly stand out because too many bloggers are taking attention grabbing guides like this to heart. Go and read any newspaper and then go read their blog. I was surfing a writers website and looked at their guest post submission guidelines. It asked for a degree in communications and posts must be written in AP style.

Since when does AP style have to do with blogging? I think too many people along with the so called blogging experts seem to confuse blogging with the writing we were all taught in school.

Two completely different things. He has a very clear understanding of what a blog is and what traditional writing is. If you want to write a better fiction novel, screenplay, business letter or speech, take a college level writing class. If you want to learn how to blog, learn from guys who live it.

Writing forms the basis of blogging, as it does journalism, play writing, speech writing and so on. ALL writing, not just blogging. People may believe blogging needs to be shorter and punchier to retain peoples attention, but a word long blog can retain peoples attention if it is WRITTEN well. Using these so called power words does not make you a better writer. The power of a written piece does not come from individual words, it comes from the context the words are written in; how they relate to other words; sentences; paragraphs and the subject they are describing.

The fact that bloggers can string sentences together is a direct result of that schooling. Without it, blogging would not exist. This list may not touch on everything that makes a good writer, but it specializes in one thing. Why not take that college level writing class Michael mentioned if you want the rest of the picture? For crying out loud. Some are more than one word: Sick and tired; marked down?

Taking this article as well as some of your other awesome basic writing technique articles, and putting them to practice in a system each time I write! Why do we fail to do what we know to do, especially when someone helps us out gives us the answers? Thanks very much for this post. Ok, maybe that was a tad too dramatic, but I think you understand what I mean. Thanks for the article and thanks to all those that took the time to comment.

This has given me some fresh ideas. I think we should petition Microsoft to add high-lightened power words to synonyms. That way it is easy. It is the lazy me. Jon, I forgot to thank you. This is a lot of hard work and the comments have added more to its value. Thanks for this great work. Much like your former students, I have been looking for this list for years! Thanks for putting this together and now I will print it out and place it in front of me for reference in all my writing.

I have also shared it with our writers so they too can benefit from your Uncensored, Mind-Blowing and Victorious list of power words. Jon, my hat off to you. As a former college teacher of rhetoric a Dale Carnegie instructor and writing coach, I watch people struggle to find the right words to appeal to the right emotion.

Your explanations and lists are concrete, and once again, very helpful. Thanks for being there for us. I am the same blowing my hat off to Jon. He has all the right terms to display his thoughts on emotions and all. Well organized and great post to show.

Share for for more of this kind Jon. I write about natural health and food, and I often find myself using the same old words when posting my recipes boooring!!! Thanks for a terrific boost for boring blog posts! Jon, this post and all these words are awesome!

What makes them all so rich and intense is the way they connect us to our feelings; the way they bring us to something in our lives that matters.

I used your Headline Hacks with great success and this is now going to build upon that vision to post powerful headlines with even more powerful content. This list is great! Seems like it would be some good words to use in sales pages as well. Reading some of the comments makes me think some of them missed the point. These words are power words because they evoke an immediate, emotional and visceral response.

That is their power! One of the most powerful words I know is not itself a power word; it does not itself have the power of the words in your blog, it is instead a word that describes them. The smell of blood is one thing; the smoky copper scent of blood is entirely another. Those descriptive, nuanced words are words of power. Thank you so much for adding to my store! Jon I cannot thank you enough for this killer list…and everyone else for adding even more!

If I could bookmark this more than once, I would! This is such a helpful post, really grateful you shared. I loved reading this post and all of your comments.

So thanks a bunch. I could take each one and write and paragraph around it. Thanks for so many incredible ideas. I have used a list of words for choosing life values or inspiring a passion statement but never thought about words in this context before. Thanks to everyone for your contribution as well.

Some of these are words I know, but I just never think of implementing. This is an amazing article! I learned so many new power words. Thanks a lot for the list! I love this list, this is pure gold for me. I think the viral word is also a power word. A brilliant piece of work! May I post a link of this article in my blog? My friends will find it very helpful. This is an awesome list here. I have looked at it several times when trying to make a query or hook for a book I am writing and found several words that have worked for me.

Although during one query I was writing I found that Vigilante worked for me better than Terrorist. I did not see that in one of the lists and do not know if anyone else has mentioned that one yet. If not there is a new word for you. Will give me food for thought as I write my next blog entry and then next words on my next books, today. Here are some power words from my writing, yesterday. I used this as an exercise to explore my writing:.

Jon — congrats — a cracking post, that I use every week as a reference guide when creating and editing my own.

It does what it says on the tin, because it absolutely HAS made me a better writer. I have been using these now a few times, but I am struggling with how much I should emulate your style.

People actually read my posts now. A true gift from a true genius. This will be very helpful! Thank you for making the list so detailed and organized, and sharing it for free.

We have before us many, many long months of struggle and of suffering. You ask, what is our policy? It is to wage war, by sea, land and air, with all our might and with all the strength that God can give us; to wage war against a monstrous tyranny, never surpassed in the dark, lamentable catalogue of human crime. That is our policy. You ask, what is our aim? I can answer in one word: It is victory, victory at all costs, victory in spite of all terror, victory, however long and hard the road may be; for without victory, there is no survival.

It is to wage war , by sea, land and air, with all our might and with all the strength that God can give us; to wage war against a monstrous tyranny , never surpassed in the dark , lamentable catalogue of human crime. It is victory , victory at all costs, victory in spite of all terror , victory , however long and hard the road may be; for without victory , there is no survival.

They are words that cause readers to feel a particular emotion. Take a look again at the Winston Churchill example in the beginning. You should say "this sweater," "this idea" or "this surprising circumstance. If you are writing in the first person, you really can't get away from using "I" but you can put these sentence starters in front of the "I" so that it doesn't jump out at the reader. As a matter of fact, I usually introduce sentence starters to my class when we are doing a personal essay.

I have them notice how many times they start a sentence in the personal essay with "I" and then I have them circle all of those "I" sentences. Next, I have them scan the list of words and put one or more in front of the "I" sentences. Another trick is to take a sentence and invert it so that the "I" is not the first word. I wanted to explain how to use sentence starters and so I used many "I" sentences in this answer.

Because I wanted to explain how sentence starters work, I used many "I sentences in this answer. Go back and see what I did to "eliminate" the "I"! When you are tempted to use "so" to start a sentence, you are generally trying to convey a conclusion or a result. Here are some good transition words and phrases for that:. Look at the list of connecting words for substitutes for "and" at the beginning of a sentence. Inside a sentence, there usually doesn't need to be a substitute for "and" if you are connecting two or more ideas.

You can't really overuse "and. Therefore, you need to use these sentence starters to help you out and also look at my article on 5 Easy Ways to Write Better Sentences. Don't always start the sentence with the subject. Use an introductory phrase instead. For explanations of these three techniques ane more ideas, you can see my article: Five Tips to Write Better Sentences: Whether you would receive points off for using a conjunction is entirely dependent on the instructor's grading system.

Technically, conjunctions are intended to join two sentences together; therefore, using a conjunction to begin a sentence is not grammatically correct. However, we use this format all the time in speaking and you will often see it in all kinds of writing as well.

Personally, I avoid using a conjunction to start a sentence in my formal writing, although I might use it in an informal email or letter for emphasis and to make my tone sound more friendly and casual.

I discourage my students from using this sentence form in essays because they tend to overuse it, and because most of them need to practice writing in a more professional manner. What is most important is that you understand that using a conjunction to start a sentence gives your writing a more informal, casual tone. If that is appropriate to convey your meaning, then you should use it. On the other hand, if you are trying to create a document which makes you sound authoritative, you should avoid that construction.

The simple answer to your question is that you need to ask your teacher about their standards on this issue. The most important rule about the word "this" is not to use it all by itself. For example, you would say "this couch," "this carpet" or "this lawn" to point out which one of several possible couches, carpets or lawns you are talking about. If you are not trying to show the reader which one out of several things you are talking about, you need to use something other than "this.

You can find many sample topics on these types of essays on my web pages. You can also find step by step instructions on how to write these essays. Your best choice for substitutes for "most of" would be "many," "a considerable number," or "almost all.

I believe that what you are talking about is continuing on something in a sentence. Here are some words you can use:. Sign in or sign up and post using a HubPages Network account. Comments are not for promoting your articles or other sites. Hi Nicole--I have lots of instructions on how to write articles. Google that and you'll find it. My son has to write a word essay on violence and the Impact.

I think your sentence would work but it is a bit hard to tell out of context of the paragraph. However, I think it would be better if you said:. Hi Fuat, I now understand your question more clearly. With the added information you give here, I would have to say that "especially" is not a good substitute for "in particular.

Especially, I like swimming. And yet in your samples "especially" refers to "in the summer" and "when it is a warm day" respectively, whereas in my example it referred to "swimming". So, again, can it be used in place of "in particular" - as in "I have a number of hobbies. To make this a good sentence you need something between "especially" and the subject "I. Thanks a lot, Virginia.

So, would a sentence like "Especially I like swimming" be correct? Hello Fuat, these are words that are intended to help you start your sentences with something other than just the subject. Some of these words work alone and others need to be put into a phrase. Especially when my daughter is taking a nap, I enjoy a quiet cup of tea and a good novel. Thanks for this undoubtedly useful article. I'd like to clarify something: Does it mean that the above mentioned words can be used at the beginning of a sentence?

Hi jlc--I'm glad to hear that you work hard at your revision. I'm not sure about the "Same for" as a start. Could you give me the full sentence?

Nice article Virginia, I have gained from it a lot especially the transition words.

Hi, Himabindu- "So," is generally used as a coordinating conjunction others are "and," "but," "or," and "yet" and therefore would generally not be used correctly to start a sentence, but rather as a way to join two sentences.

However, in your example, you are using "so" as an interjection in a conversational style sentence. You could vary this by saying:.

In the second example, you are using "as" in an introductory phrase, which is another way to vary your sentences besides just using a sentence starter transition word. When you are trying to decide how to write a sentence differently, you need to decide what that sentence is doing.

Is it adding to what you've already said? Then use words like "Additionally" or "Furthermore. Use "However," "In contrast" or "On the other hand. If I have to use transition words that means, 'so' or 'as' or 'that's why' what I have to use?

For example, I say " So, I don't want to use this in my book" or " As this book is not useful to me, I don't want to see this on my shelf. Thank you so much, this will help me in my IELTS preparation especially in writing and speaking as well.
