How can I use the word connotation is a more active phrasing?
Often, if I want to say an object that suggests magic, I may say "the object has a connotation of being magical".
But this phrasing is long. If I phrase as "this object has a magical connotation", this gives a very different meaning as the word "magical" in this case is telling people that the connotation is magical instead of the object.
So, how can I phrase in such a way that I don't have to use a preposition so that my sentence is shorter and easier to read?
