English

I'm learing about connotations of words. Although many words have connotations that most of us agree to because they are culturally shared, some worlds cna be given a different connotation in some contexts.
However, since I am a ballingual student, I'm having a hard time doing this homework.

I have to write sentences for each of these words so they should imply opposite connotaions rather than the usual connotations.


a. natural +
b. old -
c. committed +
d. free +
e. chemical -
f. lazy -


Thanks!
