one word substitution

One word substitution means the substitution of a roundabout statement with one suitable and appropriate word. Too many words (verbosity) and circumlocution impede the smooth flow of thoughts and often create confusion. So, in exhibiting your sentiment by speech, the narrower the compass of the word is, the more energetic is the impression.
