Is there any other word I can use instead of respectively?
This word provides me a way to describe a list of items conveniently in a single sentence and hence save space. I've used this many times and there are mainly two reasons I am asking this:
- I'm just looking for alternatives, since I don't want to use the same word everywhere.
- Another small reason is that I find the word respectively a bit long which makes writing short sentences using it difficult.
Since an example of its use was requested:
"Samantha, John and Jack bought apples, mangoes and oranges respectively from the market." (I know it's not a very creative one.)
I also looked for synonyms at thesaurus.com but the only close ones I found were correspondingly and individually. I'm unsure whether these are valid substitutions for the use of respectively as in my example.
