Definition: (adjective) outstandingly bad; shocking Replaces: bad Why use an adjective like “bad” when you could easily switch it out for a scholarly word like “egregious”!This word is sure to impress your English teacher, so you should remember to use it in your next essay!
Thanks, Eduardo Hello ehernandez07, The linking expression is 'on the other hand'.
We only use 'in the other hand' with a literal physical meaning - to describe what a person is holding in their other hand after saying what they have in their first hand!
Asserts can be used in a myriad of situations, but make sure you don’t say it so frequently that it becomes just as repetitive as “says”!
An instance where asserts would fit perfectly is “The author asserts that the issue is lacking simple solutions”.
We all have a tendency to say things like “a lot of examples” or “many experiences” in our essays, but that doesn’t make your essay stand out to your teacher.
If you want to make your teacher perk up, be sure to include this word in your essay!
If there's a specific situation you want to ask about, perhaps we can help more, so please don't hesitate to ask us if so.
All the best, Kirk The Learn English Team Dear Learn English team, I have read the linking expression "in the other hand" instead of "on the other hand" and I would like to know if it is proper to use "in the other hand" in some situations and "on the other hand" in others.
