But… synonyms and antonyms…
When I was young my father banned me from saying ‘yeah but…’ when he was trying to reason with me and say no. Although this was a very frustrating situation it did teach me to find other ways to say ‘but’…
However / although / on the other hand / yet / alternatively / except / nevertheless.…
So, I would suggest that if you want a fun way to amplify your vocabulary, ban yourself from using a word for a while and see if you can find other ways to say what you want to say. It is best perhaps an exercise used to try to replace those words that you use often.
You can also use it to look at opposites, plus all those new alternative words will themselves have their own synonyms and antonyms.
Give it go! It might be fun!
Extra tip: Never start a sentence with ‘but’! It’s bad grammar.
