We all love to laugh, yet we all laugh so differently. The word 'laugh' has a lot of synonyms: chuckle, chortle, guffaw, giggle, titter, snigger, snicker, cackle, howl, roar, and tee-hee -- being only a few. Yet they all have their own connotations, and imply a different kind of laughter. To me at least, none other than "laugh" describe the good old laugh we use every day. But isn't that a bit dry? A bit un-descriptive? Sure, you can chuck an adverb onto the end of it, but isn't the road to hell paved with adverbs? "She laughed joyfully". Eh. I have characters that laugh a lot. Because that's what most people do, they laugh a lot. I mean, it's not over the top, every sentence or even scene or anything. Just, a lot. But I feel like I am using the word "laughed" too much, but I am yet to find an alternative that implies the same thing as that casual laugh. Not to mention that everyone's laugh is different. Saying "he/she laughed" doesn't convey how they laugh at all.
