hi guys.... i was re-reading the twilight saga a couple of days ago.... and i noticed that stephenie tends to repeat a few specific words a lotConfused A few examples that i can remember now are:
 
chagrin
maschoistic
chastise
hyperventilate
 
in some parts she's used the same word about three or four times on one page... Confused have you ever noticed that?

The one that I've noticed the most is 'chagrin'.... I have noticed this word is used a lot! Embarrassed However, I think only once or twice did I find it repetitive.. other times, it wasnt really that noticeable to me. She's not the only author who repeats words, everyone does that... sometimes there's just not a better word to use! Or other times, that's the only one you can think of... though I do wish that another word was used sometimes, though. Anyways... good observations! :)

yeah, she does say grimaced, and chagrin alot...but i think that's normal for authors to use the same word repeatedly. it might seem weird to us, but for them ,its fine.

I thought I was the only one who noticed the repetition of the word "chagrin" and it'd be okay if she used it properly but she doesn't. Not in MS, at least.
 
For the lulz, I pulled out my copy of MS and ran these words in the search:
(keep in mind, these are only a count of 12 chapters)
- flinch/flinched: 18
- sigh/sighed: 81
- wince/winced: 8
- cringe/cringed: 9
- warm/warmed/warmer/warmth/warming: 41
- exquisite: 8
- human(s)/inhuman: 179
- smile/smiled: 126
- monster: 50
- dazzle/dazzled: 10
- silent/silently/silence/silenced : 61
- frown/frowned/frowning: 19
- gasp/gasped/gasping: 18
- grimace/grimaced: 15
- jerk/jerked/jerking: 7
 
This is so hilarious and amusing at the same time.
