You must have guessed the topic of today’s video.

It’s the use of sensory imagery in their poetry and words that carry the readers in a state of trance.

It’s a powerful way to engage the readers in your writing.

 

Imagine saying something like-” He enjoyed the taste of coffee”

However, presenting it in another way such as -, ” He was mesmerized with the mouth-watering sweet nutty taste of hot coffee” grabs your attention immediately.

 

Why?

It’s because of the power of the sensory words like

Mesmerizing which symbolizes a feeling

Mouthwatering evokes your taste buds

Nutty reminds you of the color of the coffee beans

 

 

In this way, you can enhance the impact of any writing with the use of sensory words.

It allows the readers to derive their inferences based on their perception.

It undeniably engages the reader into your writing by creating a more vivid image of the story or poetry setting.

 

Isn’t it a powerful way to present any writing to your audience?

 

There are six categories of sensory words you can use in any writeup.

 

Visual imagery that leverages the power of visual descriptions

For example, of a state of darkness symbolizing misery.

 

 

Auditory imagery using the description of sounds

Example of Sound of chirping of birds to remind the readers of the spring season.

 

Olfactory to engage the sense of smell to describe any setting

The smell of flowers to evoke a specific response from the readers

 

Tactile imagery to make the readers feel the sensation of touch

Cold feet symbolizing a particular emotion of nervousness

 

Gustatory imagery conveying a particular taste like sweetness for the readers to interpret themselves

 

And finally

Kinesthetic imagery uses mental images of motion to elicit a particular response from the reader.

A rush of blood symbolizes a daring act.

 

In this way, you subconsciously engage the reader into your writing by pushing him to draw his judgments with the sensory imagery.

 

Now, I am sure that you are ready to explore this amazing world of sensory words.

 

Wasn’t it a mind-blowing lesson?
