Description
Even good writers sometimes find the right word elusive. Or is it illusive? The correct usage for more than 2,000 words that people commonly misuse is provided in this concise and accessible handbook that assures, insures, and ensures that anyone who wants to communicate accurately and effectively chooses the right word every time. Arranged alphabetically in pairs (or threes when appropriate), entries are carefully explained with a sentence that illustrates correct usage and cross-referenced to ensure that readers find, for example, boycott, even when they look up embargo first. Two dozen cartoons by Argentinian illustrator Santiago Cornejo (Corne) humorously clarify confusing distinctions between words and make this a fun reference for all word lovers to enjoy.
