100 Words Almost Everyone Mixes Up Or Mangles

Product Description

A book with real cache . . . or is it cachet?? 100 Words Almost Everyone Mixes Up or Mangles presents words that people can't keep straight, no matter how hard they try. It features helpful notes that provide guidance on tricky usage issues: the confusion between lend and loan, between plurality and majority, whether free rein is spelled "rein" or "reign." Each entry has a full definition and etymology, and most are accompanied by quotations from classic and contemporary authors that show how the words are used in context. With updates to some of the definitions and etymologies based on revisions made to the American Heritage Dictionary, a refreshed and diversified quotation program, and a brand-new cover design to match the updated series look, there's no doubt this is the book people have been looking for; a book that readers will pour(pore?) over, a book that is both masterful(masterly?) and laudable (laudatory?).
