I find I use the words amazing and stunning a wee bit too much. So, taking the torch from Stephen King who a few years ago vigorously opined on this very topic I give you a 101 Words To Use Instead of AMAZING.
Use them singly: “That top looks magnetic on you!” Or turn a lovely adjective into an adverb and you’ll have an unlimited bewitching dictionary.
A prosaic – “Cecilia, those pants are amazing”, turns into “My god, those pants are delectably sublime!”
You can print this list in a PDF format and tape it above your computer. The next time you’re tempted to say bla-mazing to describe a sunset or your kitten’s new bow tie look up and be inspired.
Now go forth and have a divinely glorious day!
Thank you for the list. Amazingly, I’ve been struggling to find word substitues for “amazing” , “beautiful” and such adjectives. This is timely.
I appreciate the list but your examples sound a bit Victorian.

Well, there is always Dope, Gucci, Cheddar, Fire, Lit, OMG, and GOAT. Oh, and can’t forget Sic/Sick.
Ha Ha! Those are a foreign language to me!
My kids say those all the time!
