    help for the word "rejuvenate"

    Hello teachers,

    Please help me with the following examples.
    1. " I revere you from the core of my heart" is this the right statement? If not please correct this for me.

    2. " One of the best exercise to practice pronounciation is to put in a bucket over your head & say whatever you read aloud. This exervise will help you to listen to the reviberation of your voice". Did I use reviberation correctly here?

    3. "Doing little exercise everyday helps us to rejuvenate " Did I use rejuvenate correctly?

    4. "After facial, I feel rejuvenated." Is this a right statement?

    Thank You.
    Jhon.

    Post Re: help for the word "rejuvenate"

    * One of the best + (plural) exercises
    * It's revibration not reviberation
    * When used without object rejuvenate means something like becoming young again. It sounds good to me. The same for the last sentence.


    I'm neither a native speaker nor a teacher.

    1. " I revere you from the core of my heart" is this the right statement? If not please correct this for me.

    You have over complicated a simple message of affection. 'Revere' is used as a sign of respect and affection for someone at a distance, certainly not someone you know personally. It is not commonly used in modern society.

    There are a number of ways of putting this, here are some.

    a) I love you from the bottom of my heart. (passionate)
    b) I love you deep down. (more camaraderie, but could be passionate)
    c) I love and respect you, deeply. (affectionate and famillial)
    d) I admire you from afar. (distant)

    2. " One of the best exercise to practice pronounciation is to put in a bucket over your head & say whatever you read aloud. This exervise will help you to listen to the reviberation of your voice". Did I use reviberation correctly here?

    Reverberation


    3. "Doing little exercise everyday helps us to rejuvenate " Did I use rejuvenate correctly?

    Yes you did, but what you have said means the opposite.

    Doing little exercise means you hardly do any.
    Doing a little exercise means you are making an effort.

    Strange how one letter can change the whole meaning


    4. "After facial, I feel rejuvenated." Is this a right statement?

    Again, 'after a facial'. A facial is a noun. Facial is an adjective, and is associated with facial confrontation or face to face.

    Hope that has helped.
