    Grammar Need apathetic words.

    Discussion in 'Word Mechanics' started by Smoke Z, May 3, 2014.

    I'm using adversary when the word should be "this guy I'm strangling because he annoyed me and I want to keep him from moving."

    I'm probably going to need the word for "the enemy of my enemy so not as bad but still a threat."

    My examples are first-person, but the story is third-person, if that helps at all.
