Tuesday Use It In A Sentence – Nuance

13 Comments

I love the word “nuance.” It depicts subtlety and refinement, not necessarily to make something elite, but rather to cause one to pay attention to detail. Which makes it rather funny to me that in my thesaurus, one of the synonyms for “nuance” is “shade.”

“Fifty Nuances of Grey.”

Do you think E.L. James would understand the irony?

  1. “Didn’t nuance make a terrible pun on Linda’s blog about that word?” she asked.
    “Who, me?” said Dale, “I would never do such a thing.”

  2. I tend to use “nuance” when I’m teaching English. Students often ask me what the difference is between two synonym, and I tell them about the nuances of the words. Useful word.

  4. Yep…I have a feeling she’d have to look that one up in a dictionary. If someone would just give her one. ☺

  5. Haha, no I don’t. I don’t think nuance is her thing. I also don’t think active voice and sentence structure are her thing. But look how incredibly successful she is. The world is often cruel.
