What is One Word Substitution?

One Word Substitution simply means using a specific word replacing a wordy phrase or sentence and making it shorter, concise and clearer to understand. This way, the word becomes identical with the sentence thus providing the same meaning as the wordy sentence.

The best way to master this concept is to learn their meanings by putting them in a particular sentence or visualising them through an interesting story.

Why Do We Need One Word Substitutions?

One word substitutions are important as they make communication of the English language much more concise, lucid, and easy. People can remember words and communicate bigger meanings through a simple word. For example, saying “She is someone who puts forth an idea which she herself doesn’t believe” is much harder as compared to just saying “She is a Hypocrite”. One word substitutions make our sentences more precise and reduce complexity. These substitutions also help us to classify words based on the suffixes which makes it easy to categorize them and put similar words together.

One word substitution questions frequently occur in many national-level exams such as SBI PO, UPSC, CAPF, CDS, IBPS, RRB, SSC etc.
