Better Learn than Worry
“hjuːdʒ” is the correct pronunciation.
And what does it mean?
Of exceedingly great size, extent, or quantity.
Why can’t we use large or big (or very large for that matter), why do we want to torture everyone with so many words which necessarily mean the same!
Words have power that we control, speaking is easy because we can add expressions using tones, body language etc. but writing is a different ball game altogether. We need to coin each word carefully to convey the intended meaning. The effect “Huge” creates can NOT be reciprocated by “Large” or “Big”; Poorly chosen or misplaced words can convey different meaning and we are on the mercy of the reader on how does he decide to interpret it!
Think about it. Nike never say they sell sportswear or accessories, they convey they are into sports!!
Better learn the power of words now than worry later!
