Loaded Words: Pg. 1-65
To me loaded word are words that help you picture things and make you think, which is the way I completed this assignment.
1)Excrement. Pg. 7
Excrement is a loaded word because its completely disgusting. But its also a nice way of saying poop which is why I think the author chose it. it’s a nicer way to say it but its still a loaded word.
2)Anxiety. Pg. 9
The word anxiety strikes fear in me, which is why I chose it for a loaded word. I think the author used it because everyone knows what it is and most of us have it.
3)Righteous. Pg. 10
I chose this word because there is a scene in a movie where this guy is surfing and a gigantic tsunami wave comes and he says righteous so to me it’s a very loaded word because I always think of tsunami when I hear the word. I think the author used it just because its such a good word. It has a lot of power behind it.
4)Arthritic. Pg. 12
Arthritic is describing fingers in the sentence and it really helped me picture the person which is why I chose it and I think the author chose it because it’s a good describing word.
5)Intimidated. Pg. 13
This word just scares me no matter the context its used in.
6)Sufficiently. Pg. 23
Sufficiently is a good word. When I hear it, I think if accomplishing a lot and it makes me feel good. The author used it because there isn’t really another good way to describe what sufficiently means.
7)Frenzied. Pg. 27
Frenzied reminds me of craziness like a circus or something. With lots of Panic. I think the author used it because it’s a good describing word.
8) Marvelous. Pg. 28
Marvelous seems like a really fancy word that sophisticated people use. I think the author chose it because it’s a powerful word and a really good adjective.
9)Alarming. Pg. 31
Alarming reminds me of airport security and lots of panic. The word makes you stop. Its got that much behind it. The author used it because there’s no other way to describe the situation in the book.
10)Monumental. Pg. 44
There Is nothing bigger then monumental. It really helps you picture what the author is talking about and I think that’s why he used it.
