    Summary:

    English can certainly be a confusing language, whether you’re a native speaker or learning it as a second language. The Right Word is the essential reference to help anyone master its subtleties and avoid the most common mistakes. Divided into three sections, The Right Word first examines homophones, those tricky words that sound the same but are spelled differently. Entries are organized alphabetically, with meanings and examples (including colloquial ones) given to facilitate correct use. Author Elizabeth Morrison then looks at words that often confuse — childish vs. childlike, incredible vs. incredulous — before providing a list of commonly misspelled words.
