    Does this make sense?

    Discussion in 'Word Mechanics' started by xSaphireFlamesx, Jun 9, 2015.

    Does, 'She was boasting with curiosity' make sense? Or would, 'She was bursting with curiosity' sound better?

    Unless she is bragging about how curious she is, you'll want to use "bursting."

    Yeah, I kind of thought boasting didn't sound quite right, thank you!

    How does one boast with the use of curiosity? 'Bursting' would be a better choice. Maybe something like: Curiosity burst from her eyes.

    Proper context would make this easier.

    You don't boast with something, you boast of something. But i guess it depends on the context

    Yeah, things could get messy if it was associated with The Tale of Onora: The Girl with the Solar Eyes.
