What are 'connotations'?

'I'm not cheap, I'm thrifty.'

Connotations are a feeling or idea that is suggested by a particular word. They give us the emotional connection with words.

Words can be split into 'negative','positive' and 'neutral' connotations.

Let's take a look at some words that appear to be similar, but have connotational differences.

cheap / thrifty
cheap - (negative) a person who hates to spend money.
thrifty - (positive) a person who is very careful with money.

young / youthful / childish
young - (neutral) a person who is of a young age.
youthful - (positive) a person who may not be young, but has all the good qualities of youth.
childish - (negative) a person who behaves like a child in a negative way.

thin / slim / skinny
thin - (neutral) a body size that is the opposite of 'fat'.
slim - (positive) used to describe an attractive body shape which is 'thin'.
skinny - (negative) to be too thin.

inactive / laid-back / lazy
inactive - (neutral) to do nothing.
laid-back - (positive) to have a relaxed attitude.
lazy - (negative) a person who does not want to work or use effort

timid / prudent / cowardly
timid - (neutral) a person who is nervous and shy.
prudent - (positive) a person who avoids taking risks and is careful.
cowardly - (negative) a person who is too scared to take risks.

proud / confident / conceited
proud - (neutral) to have self-respect.
confident - (positive) to have self-belief in your own abilities.
conceited - (negative) to be too proud in your abilities. To view yourself too highly.

Connotation has to do with whether different synonyms for the same idea are good or bad. Two words can have the same meaning but different connotation.

Slender has a positive connotation
Scrawny has a negative connotation


Economical - positive
Miserly - negative

Steadfast - positive
Stubborn - negative

Studious - positive
Nerdy - negative

Adjective:


Adjective is a word used with a noun to add something (kind,quality,quantity etc). eg:large,honest,five,lazy,etc.,

Verb:


A verb is a word that tells or asserts something about a person or thing. eg:sing,kick,laugh,break, run etc.,

Adverb:


An adverb is a word which modifies the meaning of a verb,an adjective or another verb.
eg:This is a very sweet mango. In this sentence very modifies th verb sweet. very shows how much the mango is sweet. very is an adjective.
