  • Use the word severe to indicate that something bad or undesirable is great or intense

  2. The company suffered severe losses during the cold war.

Mind Trick:
The trick is very simple; Revere means to respect and Severe means strict, just connect the first letter "R" for Revere and "R" for Respect, "S" for Severe and "S" for Strict.Confusion Ends.
Beware of the word Reverie that means daydream. The i in the word help you know how to get past the confusion between Revere and Reverie as i means imagination or daydream or ability to create pictures in your mind .
