    Help with expressions

    Discussion in 'Word Mechanics' started by Luna-Ashley, Jan 30, 2014.

    I'm currently writing a story but as a second speaker of the English language, I'm not sure about a lot of things like how to describe the evil Grin villains give, what is the expression used when a guy is flirting, what is a moan, how to tell that the character is annoyed, how to say when we are extremely angry, what is a smirk and a whole lot more.

    Smirk: Smile in an irritatingly smug, conceited, or silly way.
    Moan: A long, low sound made by a person expressing physical or mental suffering or sexual pleasure.
    Words that mean extremely angry: livid, furious, enraged
    Evil Grin: "Sadistic" means "enjoying others pain" so you could call it a "sadistic grin". A maniacal grin works too - a manic is someone who is very violent or angry, also normally crazy. Or a demonic grin (demonic meaning evil).

    anything else you need help with?

    Thank you Very Much.
    I'll ask if I have more question.

    You could just say "flirty" or "coy" or "charming".
