While the English language evolves for many legitimate reasons, like new technology and catch-words-of-the-day, the biggest problem with the English language is that it forgives too easily. When our words are misused, it seems it's easier to let them be twisted enough so they encompass their incorrect usage, so they appear to be correct even when they are wrong.
That's why this dictionary was written - to help you eliminate from your language common errors that weaken your writing. Using the correct word at the proper moment adds power to your efforts.
"A Writer's Dictionary of Distinctions" presents the most accurate, powerful, and effective ways to use nearly 300 common words. What we present here represents the best definitions, the best distinctions, and you will never be wrong in using them as we suggest.
Use them as we've noted, and your mastery of the language will only strengthen.
