You can :

  3. once you un-collapse the chatbox formatting toolbar by clicking on the BBCode button, you have access to different formatting options for your chats. You can format a chat by selecting a part (or the totality) of it and then select one of the buttons/list.

    Default English Idioms for essay

    can anyone share me some idioms....

    this is one of my fav
    turns of mind-piece of mind/mindset



    can we share our vocabulary too?as in exchanging certain bombastic words which pull your essay marks up..



    (hope the mods don't mind me posting this topic in the wrong place.i think it would be better for me to separate this from the english topic since that one has a wide coverage..thought it would more specific here..sorry..)

    i would say using bombastic words just to pull up your essay mark trick will not work, unless u fully understand those words, and your vocabulary throughout the essay is consistent, or else, those words will be odd because they don't fit in, giving the grader an impression that the writer is not using 'suitable' words because most of the time, bombastic words have more 'restricted' meaning, and really, unless ur command of english is really good, where u fully understand the words u use, or else, don't push it too hard... or it will really backfire...

    just my 2 cents.

    want to improve the level of ur command of english ?? i would say start reading more english materials(fiction, nonfiction, news article)...
    There is no limit even the sky
    So spread ur wings and fly

    if u wanna make ur english essay bombastic,
    u need to use some NLP application like writing stuffs that involves many senses like visual, auditory, sensory, taste etc.
    different ppl hv diff preference of sense in their thinking process so by involving senses u make ur essay interesting, colourful, balanced, whimsical and great....


    instead of using bombastic words that might burden some readers,
    try sensual sentences like this :


    It APPEARS (v) that our FOCUS (v) of DISCUSSION (a) should not be HEAVY (s) so that our AUDIENCE (a) can GRASP (s) what we are trying to (SHOW (v).

    etc.

    narrative example :

    have u SEEN but a WHITE lily GROW
    Before RUDE hands have TOUCHED it?
    Have you FELT the wool of beaver
    or swan's down, ever?
    Have you TASTED the bad of the bee?

    So WHITE
    so SOFT
    so SWEET is she

    I think memorizing nice phrases works very well for me. I got a A1 for English GCE O Level but my English vocab is not very good. So, I think you should focus more on grammar.

    BTW, you may want to visit websites on essay writing like this one http://goodessays.blogspot.com/

    Exam is coming, so you should master essay writing especially grammar by hook or by crook!
