100 Words Almost Everyone Confuses & Misuses
Bargain Book Copy
The perfect book for anyone seeking clear and sensible guidance on avoiding the recognized pitfalls of the English language. Each word on the list is accompanied by a concise and authoritative usage note based on the renowned usage program of the American Heritage Dictionaries. These notes discuss why a particular usage has been criticized and explain the rules and conventions that determine what's right, what's wrong, and what falls in between. Troublesome pairs such as affect/effect, blatant/flagrant, and disinterested/uninterested are disentangled, as are vexing sound-alikes such as discrete/discreet and principal/principle. Other notes tackle such classic irritants as hopefully, impact, and aggravate, as well as problematic words like peruse and presently.
