English is an interesting language with words which are either simple, slightly complex or very complex.

In case you wish to add some swag to your vocabulary, here are some few nice words you can use to replace everyday words that we all know.

1. Corpulent

The word corpulent means fat so instead of saying, “he’s fat” to describe someone, you can use this word instead, “a short, somewhat corpulent man” and in the ears of everybody, it wouldn’t sound insulting.

2. Skulduggery

The word means “a dishonest behavior or activity” and so instead of saying, “They are into the investigation of commercial dishonest activities” which sounds a bit dragging, you can say, “They are into the investigation of commercial skulduggery”.


3. Impavid

The word means someone who is bold, fearless or undaunted, so think of all the possible ways you can use the word.
