I am writing a graduation speech.


Answer by  dhuoda (1431)

Formal words are renumeration, salary, income (for money paid to you), expenses, outgoings, expenditure (for money paid out by you), savings, wealth, financial assets for money that you have laid aside. Cash, dosh, readies, bucks, dough, loot, moolah and brass are slang expressions for money. You can also use just the name of your local currency such as dollars, pounds.

The thesaurus gives a couple hundred synonyms, related words and concept phrases. Your selections depend on the tone of your speech and your goals for the message. You can access a thesaurus online, pick one up at the bookshop or use one at the public library. They are usually shelved at the reference desk.
