A Concise Dictionary of Confusables
All Those Impossible Words You Never Get RightBook - 1990
An invaluable popular reference guide to over 2000 of the most commonly confused and misused words. Arranged alphabetically, each entry is paired with the word it is most commonly confused with, followed by a brief definition and/or explanation of the differences between the words and the shading in meaning and usage. Some words are paired because they sound or look alike; others are words that are interchangeable in some contexts but not in others; still others are words that are closely related or just commonly misunderstood or misused because of public carelessness or ignorance. This is a desk-top essential for anyone interested in language or correct word usage.
