View Full Version : Words never and through

Are there always alternatives for the word "never" or only some of the time? Some samples of substitutes would help.

Also what are good substitutes for the word "through".
Where "through" is used as driving through town.

I looked at some thesaurus on the internet for these two words. A lot of their replacements didn't make sense to me.

Cruising the town. Painting the town red. Driving around town.

for never there are other words.
I wouldn't _______. instead of I would never _______. I will not. I can't. Isn't can work as well depending on the placement of the word never. Usually when I hear someone say they'd never do something I always get the feeling they will eventually. I like hearing I can't do something a bit more. I can't even comprehend breaking up with you. Over I'll never break up with you. There's just something about the word can't over never to me that's more powerful. I"m not sure how else to show that. I hope that helps.
