    In articles about advantages of international education, writers use many superlative adjectives. For example, I found these sentences “The biggest reason you should consider a study abroad program is the opportunity to see the world” and “One of the biggest benefits of studying abroad is the opportunity to meet new lifelong friends from different backgrounds.” in “10 Benefits to studying abroad”. “Biggest” as a superlative adjective expresses the extreme or highest degree of a quality.

    The Song of Songs was first a carefully crafted collection of secular love poems celebrating the physical, sexual, and erotic love between man and woman. Later, Jewish and Christian custom transformed it into a beautiful manuscript of religious belief. This alteration was deemed necessary once the Song became part of the Bible because God is not cited in the book at all. In the often-quoted passage Song 8:6, one expression, in particular, can be translated as a reference to God or not: The last…

    Don't say ‘infinitely’ when you mean ‘very’; otherwise, you'll have no word left when you want to talk about something really infinite" (Letters of Note). A warning made nearly fifty years is now more relevant than ever, as we find ourselves in this exact position - we no longer have words left to use when we need to describe something truly great.
