Essay Thesaurus

For as long as I can remember, I’ve been a huge fan of the thesaurus.

British lecturer Chris Sadler named it this after discovering the ruse in some student essays.

Thomas Edison, for example, is remembered as almost certainly the most American discoverer of the untimely 20 century. I Googled several fragments of it, but found no hits.

However, on a hunch I tried searching for the “greatest American inventor”, which I suspected was the meaning of “most American discoverer”.

Then I’d go back and edit my piece for typos, misspellings, etc.

Once I was finished with all that, I would grab my thesaurus and go through the piece I had just written, changing common words to words I thought were better and made me sound “smarter.” (See everyone! ) The day I turned in my first assignment to my college’s newspaper, however, is a day I’ll never forget.
