25:I am tired of saying, “I appreciate it.” What else can I say instead?

“I appreciate it.” is a phrase used to express thanks or gratitude, so any other way of thanking someone is perfectly acceptable.

  • Thank you.
  • Thank you very much.
  • Thanks.
  • Much obliged.
  • I’m grateful.

25:I am tired of saying, “I enjoy it.” What else can I say instead?

I am going to assume you graduated from “thank you” to “I appreciate it” and are looking for the next step.

Go back a step. Start with “thank you,” but then add a few words to express why you are grateful.

“Thank you for holding the door for me.”

“Thank you for listening to me.”

“Thank you for helping me do X.”

Specifying what you are thanking people for makes the sentiment feel more genuine and shows that you are authentically grateful for the specific thing they did for you.

Thanks for the A2A.

25:I am tired of saying, “I enjoy it.” What else can I say instead?

It really depends on the context. Often, “thank you” works just fine. “Thank you, that’s helpful,” or “Thanks. I welcome your opinion (idea, assistance, etc.)” will also work.

If the appreciation includes an obligation of some sort, such as when someone does you a favor that you are both thankful for and understand should be returned, you can say, “Thanks (or thank you), I’m much obliged to you.” That last one sounds colloquial and, in fact, is, yet it is still used regularly.

If you provide more context, someone else here or I can give you a more tailored answer.

25:I am tired of saying, “I enjoy it.” What else can I say instead?

I don’t know the context, so I’ll assume any context. I get tired of saying “I” statements, so my preference is “thank you” and “you are” statements:

“Thank you.”

“Thank you so much.”

“Thank you for being so kind.”

“You’ve gone above and beyond the call of duty.”

“You rock.”

“You’re awesome.”

“How wonderful of you.”

“You’re amazing.”

25:I am tired of saying, “I enjoy it.” What else can I say instead?

Refer to what it was they did for you in some way:

Thank you—that was fast!

That was just what I needed.

Compliment them on their skill or knowledge:

You certainly know your products.

Express genuine appreciation in a specific way:

That has made my whole day more manageable.

That’s great! You have been accommodating.

I usually try to find something specific to thank them for, but there is certainly nothing wrong with what you’re already saying. Everyone likes to hear a sincere “Thank you” or “I appreciate your help.”

Another tip—don’t rush it or recite it. Imagine yourself hearing the words. You’d want to enjoy them. Put yourself in the other person’s shoes.

What’s a better way to say “I appreciate it”?

Thank you! You just made my morning!

Thank you! I was starving, and I’m so happy you got me this delicious-looking chicken.

Thank you! I have been craving oysters all week.

Thank you! I feel so loved.

Thank you! It’s my favorite coffee shop. What a treat!

Basically, you show them that their gift has met your needs or at least cheered you up.

You also have to customize it for the recipient. My assistant recently surprised me with a cake. She’s an Instagram queen, very aesthetic, and is always on FaceBook too. So I posted this photo on my FB, tagged her, and said: “Thank you, Natalie! How am I supposed to eat it?! It’s too pretty.”

Why do we say, “I appreciate it”?

I can’t speak for other people, but when I say it, it’s because I appreciate the kindness someone has done for me. Whether it cost them anything in terms of time, money, or anything else, it was of benefit to me. Sometimes, a “thank you” just doesn’t seem to be enough.

Why do we say, “I appreciate it”?

Perhaps I’m an oddball, but I reserve the honesty of this saying “I appreciate it,” for when something has been done for someone or myself, asked or volunteered, for when I genuinely feel thankful from the depths of my heart for what they have done…, “I truly appreciated all the help you have given to me today,” should let this or these persons know how wonderfully they have given of themselves and deserve praise honestly.

What is a polite way to say, “I’m tired of talking with you, and I’m going to go away now”?

It is more considerate to say that you have things that need to be done and you can’t talk any longer. Most people have tasks that need to be accomplished, so this will generally not be received as a personal insult.

Can I say, “You can be here in my stay” instead of saying, “in my stead”?


“In my stay” is not a meaningful expression. The noun “stay” can refer to a period when you are staying somewhere. “You can be here during my stay” would be grammatically correct, but it does not mean the same thing as “in my stead.”

“In my stead” is an archaic construction that could be rendered “instead of me.” You can think of it as an idiom or fixed expression. This idiom is common enough and would be understood by any native English speaker. There is really no other usage for “stead” in modern English.

What’s a better way to say “I appreciate it”?

Instead of focusing on your feelings, say something nice about your friend’s act or your friend:

Thanks for bringing coffee, that’s very generous.

Thank you for lunch; It was you who invited me.

If you focus on a gift, then add a comment that says how the intent of the gift was successfully met:

Thanks for the [birthday gift]; I really like it and will use it often, and I will remember you gave it to me when I did.

What’s a better way to say “I appreciate it”?

Thank you is a common phrase to say “thank you,” but it can sound cold or formal.

Some alternatives are “I appreciate it,” “That was really kind of you,” or “Thank you so much.” These phrases sound more friendly and sincere.

Are there any other ways to say, “I would truly appreciate it if you could provide us with something”?

Originally Answered: Is there any other way to say, “I would truly appreciate it if you could provide us with something”?

Q. Are there other ways to say, “I would truly appreciate it if you could provide us with something”?

A. “I would truly appreciate it if you could …” has some grammatical issues, as discussed in the addendum below.

  • Using “appreciate” for “being grateful” is not correct.
  • Drop the truly.
  • You don’t have to be so supplicant. Be polite but not obsequious.
  • Replace the I with We.
  • It’s more polite.

We shall be grateful if you can {…}” is the preferred way.

Caution: Don’t try to be varietal. Pick one and stick to it. It will become second nature, and you will remember it. Save creative writing for non-business purposes.

What is wrong with the following two sentences, if anything? Is *it* necessary?

I would appreciate *it* if you would send me a refund. (1a)

Please send me a refund. (1b)

Some writing authorities don’t approve the use of “appreciate” in the sense of “being grateful for” at all, but they are in the minority. None of my resources speak directly to your question about the omission of “it.” Still, some of them do object to a clause now following as the object of “appreciate” (particularly clauses beginning with “how” or “that” — but I think we should add “if”). Garner, for instance, says that “We appreciate how you’ve worked for the community” should be replaced by “We are grateful for …” When you omit the “it” in your sentences, you’re creating the same problem of “appreciate” being followed by a clause; the sentences work better with “it.” In a Google search, incidentally, “appreciate it if” outnumbers similar constructions without the “it” by a 3 to 2 margin. Having said all this, however, you’re now left with a wordy and gaseous substitute for the more direct and equally polite “Please send me a refund {for ______}.”

When do you use “very appreciated” versus “much appreciated”?

The key here is the word appreciate. We should use much instead of very before this particular wordIn formal contexts in affirmative sentences, much can be used as a degree adverb before the verbs admire, appreciate, enjoy, prefer, and regret to emphasize how we feel about things.

For example, I much enjoyed studying with you, or his art is much admired, or as in our case with this discussion, it is much appreciated.

We can use very much in a similar way before these verbs. Thus, if we wanted to use very joined with much, we can say, “It is very much appreciated.”

I hope this helps.

What are some other ways of saying “it would be greatly appreciated”?

What are some other ways of saying “it would be greatly appreciated”?

This is a passive voice (“it…” instead of “l…) phrase that has a formal, corporate tone. As in, “It would be greatly appreciated if you would sign the guest book before leaving.”

Less awkward alternatives for a formal tone include:

  • We would very much appreciate it if…
  • We would be very grateful if…
  • Please do us the honor of…
  • May we suggest that…

More personal and informal:

  • Please, or Could you please…
  • I would be very grateful if…
  • I would really appreciate it if…
  • Please don’t forget to…

The original phrase can also take on a peevish or sarcastic tone, as in “It would be greatly appreciated if you could keep your hands to yourself,” in which case alternatives might be:

  • If you don’t mind…
  • Please
  • (Keep your hands to yourself! )

What can you say instead of ‘a lot’?


It takes fewer letters.

The English language has a lot of these examples where if you are an editor, you can make any word salad fit on a page.

‘Many’ is another. Reliant on the sentence; it is better than Much and vice versa. For example:

  • He had many friends over at his house last night.
  • He had many examples.
  • The newlyweds shared many kisses as they dined.
  • The dog became despised due to his many antics beneath the table
  • With the many jokes we heard, his parties are just too many.
  • The cost of living is way too high.
  • The new mother gave the infant much love.
  • These examples respectively swap out many for many and much for many.

By those seven examples of improper English, you can find other words for ‘a lot’, too, not solely specific numbers.

For exercise, match the words below with the sentence above:


















As you can well observe by the slightly varying lengths, editors have many options to ensure that magnificent page outlines are always very tidy without much hassle beyond finding sufficient synonyms.

In fact, tremendous examples of numerous occasions exist to ensure this quite hilarious point is sufficiently explicit, especially pronouncing several essential lessons per context and a pretty magnificent enormity of severe mistakenness that very many young editors may do while neglecting to express the succinct clarity to their readers or subscribers.

I am pretty sure you will find at this moment this straightforward exercise in substitution of any appropriate synonym yields up an abundant enormity of quite magnificent examples, which are all quite plain in these several paragraphs by expressing sufficient but slightly hilarious difficulties that magnificently manifest by notice of the prominent tremendous facets as pertain to a pretty magnificent enormity of severe mistakes that many young editors may do while neglecting the selection of the appropriate synonym or pronoun. Primarily within an abundance of sufficiently prominent individuals, these agree errors are perceived as far too numerous for prominent individuals ever to subscribe again. It is a real pity.

  • This clarity of pronouncement is both prominent and sufficient, more revelatory by misuses of that overused phrase ‘a lot’ to substitute for seventeen words of several varying lengths while reading these final four hilarious but essential paragraphs out loud to yourself, in private.

Are there any other ways to 

Say, “I would truly appreciate it if you could provide us with something.”?

Originally Answered: Is there any other way to say, “I would truly appreciate it if you could provide us with something”?

“Thank you, in advance, for providing . . . .”

“Your prompt response to this request will be greatly appreciated.”

“We look forward to receiving the material in the very near future.”

“Please send the material via regular mail to the address provided.”

“Thank you for your attention to this request.”

What are some other ways of saying “it would be greatly appreciated”?

If you ask for something (as “it would be greatly appreciated if you could do this “):

  • if you, please
  • could you please
  • I would be very grateful
  • I would be so thankful
  • it would be a great assistance if you could
  • I appreciate your attention to
  • it would really help me out
  • a few fancy ones:
  • I would like to express my sincere appreciation for
  • I would sincerely appreciate your assistance in
  • your knowledge (or assistance) on this subject would help me tremendously

Less formal:

  • you would make my day
  • it would be excellent (or excellent, outstanding) if you could/would
  • I would love you forever if you would

In case you would like to use “it would be greatly appreciated” as a response, then “thank you,” and its alternatives are appropriate (the choice would depend upon the context):

  • yes, please
  • thank you
  • that would be great
  • that is great
  • it would mean the world to me
  • this would mean a lot to me

What can I say instead of I’m not going to say anything?

Do you mean you aren’t going to say anything about what someone did, or are you saying you aren’t going to say anything because you don’t want to discuss the topic? You shouldn’t know you aren’t going to say anything if it is something you think isn’t right or you disagree with. If you are trying to keep from getting involved in a specific topic or discussion, you can tell the others that you would prefer it if they didn’t discuss that around you. If you are not going to say anything to keep an innocent person from being hurt, you are not doing the right thing. While you are not saying anything, you are participating in allowing an innocent person to be injured even more than they would have if you had decided to say something.

Is it proper English to say, “I am exhausted” or “I am exhausted”?

They are both correct and mean basically the same thing. It’s hard to know where the difference between them lies, other than it really sounds more natural in spoken English as something you’d say casually to a co-worker or friend, particularly in a literal sense about a fleeting feeling of not having had a good sleep the night before.

On its own, “I’m exhausted” sounds slightly more formal and is used more in a metaphorical sense: “I’m very tired of all this arguing” (though it really works perfectly well in that sentence, too).

That’s my long explanation of trying to parse the two. They’re both correct and mean the same thing.

Are there any other ways to say, “I would truly appreciate it if you could provide us with something”?

Originally Answered: Is there any other way to say, “I would truly appreciate it if you could provide us with something”?

Avoid phrasing things as “I would truly appreciate it if you could provide us with [something]” — because that ‘tone’ will be received as sarcastic and insulting, but certainly impolite enough.

Use the traditional business phraseology as trained by generations of secretaries for over 100 years by the likes of Pitman’s Institute:—

  • “We shall be most grateful if you can provide us [or let us have] something.”
  • “We look forward to receiving [something] from you at the earliest.”

No need to ‘overdress’ things in business.

Is “I appreciate it” the same as “thank you”?

They’re not the same, but either would be appropriate in most situations.

I definitely use “thank you” more often and “I appreciate it” when I’ve already said thank you, and I want to add some extra gratitude. So I might write something like, “Thank you so much for x, I really appreciate it.”

Saying you appreciate something means you’re thankful for the thing, so I think it’s up to you which you prefer 🙂

How do you say “appreciate you”?

There are quite a few ways to say “appreciate you.” These may be heavy on the $ $ kissing scale. 😛 Here are (15) alternate phrases I’d use:

  1. I’m grateful for your efforts in my life; no words can properly convey your value.
  2. I thank God for having you in my little slice of the world.
  3. I deeply thank you for your many contributions to my life.
  4. I’m a better person for you being by my side.
  5. I highly value your contributions to my life.
  6. The world is a better place because you exist.
  7. Words cannot properly express how much I value your words and actions.
  8. You are the best thing since sliced bread. 😛
  9. I have a deep sense of gratitude for your wisdom and guidance.
  10. I am beyond blessed to have experienced your contributions to my life.
  11. I cannot say it enough or even repay you for your amazing acts of kindness.
  12. Your gifts are one of the most precious gems in life, and I can’t thank you enough.
  13. Your kindness is highly treasured.
  14. I cannot calculate the true value of your contributions; you are priceless.
  15. My gratitude for your efforts is deeper than the ocean.

When I tell someone, “Thank you so much, I really appreciate your help,” when someone has been helpful, I feel like they think I’m crazy or like they don’t know what to say. Is this being too grateful?

It depends.

Are you saying it to someone who’s in the service industry, like a cashier at a gas station or the person who scooped your ice cream?

I’m not saying gratitude isn’t necessary because it is, and unfortunately, it seems lost on a lot of people.

But, there are times when there’s a ‘right amount’ of gratitude needed.

Essentially, you wouldn’t say, ‘Thank you so much, I really appreciate your help’ to someone scooping your ice cream. You would say, ‘Thanks’.

But, for someone who spent like half an hour on the phone with you and saved you $100? Yeah, that person deserves a more hearty response.

Good luck.

When I tell someone, “Thank you so much, I really appreciate your help,” when someone has been helpful, I feel like they think I’m crazy or like they don’t know what to say. Is this being too grateful?

No, it is not.

I am also one of those folk who say thank you and show gratitude for the help to every single person they meet.

Some respond with an appreciative smile, others nod off, and some just don’t even hear it.

I went to the monastery one day with my friends. The sun was scorching, and we were damn thirsty by the end of it. We went to the water cooler, and a monk was already there filling out his water bottle.

As soon as he saw our red-boiled faces, he immediately stood to the side with his half-filled bottle in the scorching heat and calmly waited for us to satiate our thirst.

Everyone drank the water and went their ways, but I knew that that good monk had waited for an entire five minutes at 35degeee Celsius for seven random strangers to drink water. After everyone started going away, he resumed filling the water bottle. I went up to him and thanked him for waiting. He gave me a warm smile, appreciating my gesture. Even when no extra words were exchanged between us, the smile said it all.

In this world of Facebook and WhatsApp statuses and emoticons, I am one of those who want real emotions, and for that, communication is the key.

So, keep doing what you do. It is not just the is also about feeling good about yourself. Showing gratitude seems like a tiny act, but it is not.
