If somebody helped an author in many topics, how to express this with sincere gratitude?


It is a genuine pleasure to express my sincere gratitude and appreciations to people supporting me during the studies:

  • Professor Xin Ho for inspiring positive attitude, all-round support, and extensive personal and professional guidance on research, orthopaedics and life in general;

support in many topics

all-round support

support in numerous issues

  • “A” positive attitude. But don’t write it, it sounds terrible.

  • Why not just "support"? Unspecified support can mean general support.

  • You're better to use some laudatory adjectives rather than look for a single word.

1 Answer 1


"Overall support" would be a good synonym.

Overall, according to Merriam-Webster:

including everything

Another option would be "comprehensive support".

Comprehensive, according to Merriam-Webster:

covering completely or broadly

  • Hello, Janikole. OP is asking for a synonym for 'all-round support', not 'all-round'. Jul 3, 2021 at 18:31
  • On a re-read, the body does confuse the issue. But if OP is merely asking for a synonym for 'all-round', this should be CV-d for lack of research (Thesaurus.YourDictionary.com) Jul 3, 2021 at 19:03
  • All-round is not needed. If the support is not specialised, it is merely support.
