There is an interesting a synonym for the verb, 'to avoid' which is 'to eschew'.
I have made up two similar sentences with the word.
(A) At a conference, one speaker uses words very carefully to eschew any insults on the attendants.
(B) At a conference, one speaker uses words very carefully in order to eschew any insults on the attendants.
May I ask two questions about the way I use the word?
(1) Instead of using 'to avoid', can I use 'to eschew'? Because I have just learned this new word, I would like to learn how to use it correctly.
(2) Would it be correct to use 'in order to' before 'eschew'?
Please help me. Thank you very much.
