    Re: Exuberant prices

    Is it ok OK (or okay) to say "exuberant" prices instead of "high"?
    For me, no.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: Exuberant prices

    Only if you want to mock the people who set them or the people willing to pay those prices.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    Re: Exuberant prices

    Premium pricing is something specific- the price is kept high to make the product more desirable.
