Do you know that whenever you try to avoid a cliché, it forces you to pause and think of what exactly you want to say? Sometimes you even have to go back to your dictionary in order to pick the appropriate words. This will eventually help you to upgrade your vocabulary.

How many times do you use the word ‘walk’ in a sentence? Have you ever thought of replacing it with another word that will explain what you want to say more appropriately? Using a more suitable word can make your work more exciting.

Anytime you are tempted to say somebody walked, try using any of these words instead, they sometimes depict exactly what you want to say and set a different tone for your article or post.

advance, amble, bounce, clump, footslog, go, hike, hobble, march, mince, move, pace, patrol, plod, proceed, promenade, ramble, roam, saunter, stagger, stride, stroll, tour, traipse, tramp, troop trot, trek, tread, trod waddle, walter

Here are a few examples

1. Suarez walked off the pitch after sustaining an injury.

2. The soldiers made the youth corps members walk round the field seven times.
