One Word Substitution Unique & The Most Helpful. OWS Part 7

In the realm of language proficiency assessments, mastering one word substitution (OWS) is pivotal, especially when preparing for exams such as the SSC, including the prestigious SSC CGL. From the foundational stages, like Class 3, students begin encountering these exercises, where a single word stands in for more complex concepts. As learners progress, they compile a growing list of one word substitutions to enhance their command over English. Examples of these one word substitutes abound, with terms like ‘cynosure’ highlighting the focal point and ‘ephemeral’ encapsulating fleeting moments. These exercises are not only integral for exams but also for broader linguistic proficiency in everyday English one word substitution scenarios. Embracing these substitutes provides an easy yet effective way to navigate the intricacies of language, ensuring a solid foundation for success in language assessments.

642 SCAPEGOAT a person who is made to bear the blame As things had gone from bad to worse, people had taken out their anger on the easiest scapegoats: my family.

644 SPOKESPERSON a person who speaks on behalf of others I had easily brushed off what Carlotta said, but the Italian Gymnastics spokesperson’s statement did bother me a bit.

654 VETERAN a person with a long experience of any occupation Then she added, in a quite different voice: “Come to think of it, I suppose you haven’t been that slow making friends with at least some of the veterans.” He woke up with his head under a blanket in a ward for nonviolent mental patients in a veterans’ hospital near Lake Placid, New York.
655 VINDICTIVE a person who is determined to take full vengeance for wrongs done to him/her It’s a sullen, vindictive cold outside, colder than it’s been in months, and my breath vaporizes as we hurry along the canal.

656 VOLUNTEER a person who works for free When Mr. Ferro called to let me know of the new materials, he asked for no trade, volunteering to do whatever I asked of him. She must have seen something terrible, to volunteer for her memory to be erased and her entire life remade.

659 AGORAPHOBIA an extreme fear of being in open space An agoraphobia rose in her, speeding higher and higher, bigger and bigger; she would not be able to contain it; there would no end to fear. But her complex post-traumatic stress has translated into agoraphobia, and her life circumstances have not always allowed for people to stay close.
660 ALGOPHOBIA an extreme fear or dislike of pain Algophobia is much more common in elderly people. She did not study medicine because of her fear for “pains and blood” (algophobia and hemophobia).

662 ANGLOPHOBIA an extreme fear of britain Jefferson’s Anglophobia was more virulent in part because it was more theoretical, a moral conclusion that followed naturally from the moralistic categories he carried around in his head. But it was precisely that sense of security which steered him away from name-calling Anglophobia or from joining the militant end of Irish Republicanism.
663 BACTERIOPHOBIA an extreme fear or dislike of bacteria The toxins of diphtheria bacilli and streptococci are produced when the organisms have been infected by bacteriophage; it is the virus that provides the code for toxin.

664 BIBLIOPHOBIA an extreme fear or dislike of books “What about all these other kids?” said Sierra, gesturing to the tables filled with the country’s top young bibliophiles.

669 ENTOMOPHOBIA an extreme fear or dislike of insects Maybe it’s my entomophobia talking, but in a movie about dinosaurs, it’s funny that it takes a swarm of oversize insects to induce even the mildest case of the shivers. Some are people afflicted with entomophobia ” a dread of all insects.
670 FELINOPHOBIA an extreme fear or dislike of cats These include a large category of fears called phobias”claustrophobia, agoraphobia, photophobia, altaphobia, phonophobia, etc.  
671 GYNOPHOBIA an extreme fear or dislike of women But one unrecognized and insidious force ““ one that some women will likely minimize or deny ““ is internalized gynophobia.

672 HODOPHOBIA an extreme fear or dislike of road travel “What if we have a school-wide discussion on diversity? We could show our videos and discuss issues like racism, sexism, and homophobia related to current events, like the Black Lives Matter movement or celebrating Pride.” My grandmother had no use for all the gay bashing and homophobia in the world, especially among other Indians.
673 HYDROPHOBIA an extreme fear or dislike of water And I was so scared and mixed up about the danger of hydrophobia that it was clear into the next day before I even thought about thanking him for giving us Old Yeller.

681 PENIAPHOBIA an extreme fear or dislike of poverty The whole thing was crazy and mean-spirited, of course, its underlying bigotry and xenophobia hardly concealed.

682 PHASMOPHOBIA an extreme fear or dislike of ghosts My grandmother had no use for all the gay bashing and homophobia in the world, especially among other Indians. “What if we have a school-wide discussion on diversity?

Receivers in the ceiling allowed them to use radiophones.
685 RUPOPHOBIA an extreme fear or dislike of dirt You’re free to load up Mors and Alester with perks, combat expertise and skills, but must counterbalance each with a corresponding foible, such as allergies, gout or pyrophobia. Forest Service suffered from “pyrophobia””it tried to suppress all wildfires.
686 SOMNIPHOBIA an extreme fear or dislike of sleep It wasn’t the abusive rhetoric, the blatant xenophobia. Grube told me that he thought the kings of Kaan, never allied with Teotihuacan, may have wanted to stamp out pernicious foreign influences”xenophobia is a powerful motive in every culture.
687 TACHOPHOBIA an extreme fear or dislike of speed The eccentric young postmodern characters are played with touching emotional delicacy, and the mother adds a layer of humorous technophobia in her clueless struggles with online dating. Despite the apparent technophobia of “Man Against Machine,” it’s not the pumped-up sound of modern Nashville that is the target of Brooks’ war, but the sly, smart-alecky tone that now defines the genre.
688 THEOPHOBIA an extreme fear or dislike of gods or religion Maybe it was this medicine that was causing the photophobia, the eye dryness and now the burning. Now, on top of that, she was diagnosed with photophobia, an intense sensitivity to light.

691 ZOOPHOBIA an extreme fear or dislike of animals    
692 ANGLOPHILE somebody who is very fond of britain or british things My mother was a Masterpiece Theatre junkie back in the day, total anglophile. Did the composer, American but anglophile, prefer the US or the British pronunciation?
693 BIBLIOPHILE somebody who is extremely fond of books “What about all these other kids?” said Sierra, gesturing to the tables filled with the country’s top young bibliophiles.

695 KLEPTOMANIA a very strong desire for stealing things Bunny had had a mild tendency towards kleptomania, and was apt to pocket any small, valueless articles that caught his eye”nail clippers, buttons, spools of tape. The kleptomania reached its final shameful heights when we visited a small family-run honey farm on our last day.
696 LOGOMANIA a very strong desire for talking Logos are once again writ large on the runways ” in a nod to the “logomania” of the ’80s and ’90s, brands are reintroducing their classic monogrammed leather goods in fresh ways. A tiny Givenchy logo was printed on some lone pearls, because even they couldn’t escape luxury logomania.
697 THEOMANIA a very strong belief that you are god In my mind, Kristin Chenoweth will be waiting for us on a staircase at this Port Authority place, probably singing the theme to “New York, New York.” “I’m having a party. Do you want to come to my party? The theme is pink.”
698 MEGALOMANIA a very strong desire of being important Is the answer megalomania, the self-regard of a man who likes being photographed bare-chested on horseback? Is it too soon for a story about a political leader who wreaks domestic havoc because of his paranoia and megalomania?
699 MONOMANIA a very strong desire for one particular thing He could be generous and caring to a fault, but he had a darker side as well, characterized by monomania, impatience, and unwavering self-absorption, qualities that seemed to intensify through his college years. It informs the brilliance of Thomson’s characterisation, from the morbid monomania of a tormented Cosimo, to the brutish, coiled savagery of the Dominican enforcer Stufa, to the ghostly sadness of a neglected child.
700 PYROMANIA a very strong desire for setting fires Not with the fire department, which would know right away it was arson and dismiss it as another case of pyromania in a neighborhood crawling with firebugs. “You were gazing into that fire like you wanted to eat it or something. I have a cousin who for real struggles with pyromania, so I’ve seen that look before.”
