Vocabulary Use


Why would I change the word red with pink when I mean red?

See example:

The windows were decorated with yellow, red, green and white flower torans.

Because you can?


Please read what Grammarly is telling you carefully. It is not telling you to change! It is offering alternate synonyms for many words because you might want a different word.


Remember, Grammarly is software. A goldfish can read and understand your writing better than software can. It sees a word on its list of synonym and offers alternates. If you change the word to pink, it will suggest red. The software is merely a tool. You are the author and must make all the intelligent decisions.
