Description
Even if you pride yourself on your grammar and vocabulary, there's a chance that you may have confused "averse" with "adverse," or forgotten that "enormity" suggests evil deeds rather than largeness. This compact guide presents alphabetical, cross-referenced definitions for 100 troublesome words, each accompanied by a concise, authoritative usage note explaining the rules and conventions that determine what's right, what's wrong, and what falls in between. Gathered in this straightforward reference are the words and phrases we often misunderstand (impeach, irony, literally), mispronounce (mischievous), use interchangeably (blatant/flagrant), or overuse ("impact upon").
