#EngVocab: Other ways to way “shocked”

Good evening, Fellas! What are you gonna do tonight? Have you gotten 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. Meaning:It can be used when you can’t speak because of the surprise.
    • Example:
      • “She was speechless to hear her name announced as the winner.”
  1. Astonished. Meaning: It can be used when you are very surprised about something that you did not expect.
    • Example:
      • “I was astonished to find my name in her diary book.”
  1. Stunned. Meaning: It can be used when you are very shocked that you are unable to act normally.
    • Example:
      • “I was stunned when I caught you staring at me.”
  1. Flabbergasted. Meaning: It can be used when you’re extremely surprised (infomal). Since it is considered as informal word, I suggested you not to use it in any formal writing.
    • Example:
      • It flabbergasted me to see how many people attended this concert.”
  1. Staggered. Meaning: It can be used when you’re helpless with amazement.
    • Example:
      • “I was staggered to know how much money I’ve spent this holiday.”

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