Words Writers Are Too Dependent On


Seems every house, hotel, or restaurant is "nestled " into or alongside something -- hills, a shoreline, mountains, golf courses.

I don't have any better suggestions. But someone should come up with some because "nestled" is so overused that it's starting to make "situated" sound good in comparison.

I think they should stop being so timid and admit that sometimes the buildings are being spooned, snuggled, cuddled, hugged and, well, perhaps a whole host of other things I'm only going to say by pretending that I'm too proper to say them.

Wow. You're on to something: "The luxurious Pelican Hill Resort assumes the position along the Newport Coastline."

Now THERE's some marketing copy.
