#EngVocab: Other Ways to Say Shocked

Good evening, fellas! What are you gonna do tonight? Have you got any plan? If you don’t, let’s join me on this session. Tonight, I’d like to share some other ways to say “SHOCKED.” Stay tuned, fellas! #EngVocab

  1. SPEECHLESS. It can be used when you can’t speak because of the surprise. #EngVocab

Example: She was speechless to hear her name announced as the winner. #EngVocab

  1. ASTONISHED. It can be used when you are very surprised about something that you did not expect. #EngVocab

Example: I was astonished to find my name in her diary book. #EngVocab

  1. STUNNED. It can be used when you are very shocked that you are unable to act normally. #EngVocab

Example: I was stunned when I caught you staring at me. #EngVocab

  1. FLABBERGASTED. It can be used when you’re extremely surprised (infomal) #EngVocab

Example: It flabbergasted me to see how many people attended this concert. #EngVocab

Anyway, since FLABBERGASTED is considered as informal word, I suggested you not to use it in any formal writing ;) #EngVocab

  1. STAGGERED. It can be used when you’re helpless with amazement. #EngVocab

Example: I was staggered to know how much money I’ve spent this holiday. #EngVocab

It’s a wrap for tonight session. I hope it has been useful for you. Happy weekend, fellas! :D
