One gem came while isolating wimpy words. “Over” was a major offender. Check out these examples:
She sold over 100 books at her signing.
– OR –
She sold more than 100 books at her signing.
The second sentence is much more descriptive. (Some might call it persuasive.)
“Over” works best for geography.
A co-conspirator of “over” is “plus.” As in “She sold 100-plus” books. I hope no writer would claim, “She sold 100-minus books.”
Leave “plus” to Google.
