Here I would like to give you ideas so that you can make more of your texts. I leave no stone unturned. After the feel-good words that remind us of homely times, today it's up to the upscale language. You decide for yourself whether this is something for you.

Watch out, here comes Princess language. However, this does not mean any titles or courtly salutations. This is about adjectives. Adjectives are best because when they are used, context can often be used to infer their meaning.

These words affect your readers (more or less): graceful, elegant, fluffy, showy, cultivated, noble, well-mannered, exquisite, noble, aristocratic, etepetete, gallant, sublime, noble, witty, graceful or proud ...

Using these terms is like spreading your little finger while drinking from a coffee cup. It's about the effect you can achieve with it. You are expressing yourself selectively when using these types of terms. See also:
