Summary
A new-style dictionary that sorts out those annoying words, alike in sound and related in meaning, that so frequently get misused and confused. Covering a wide range of words, this dictionary lists approximately 800 pairs or larger groups of confusibles, also giving examples of their correct, and sometimes incorrect, usage and, in many cases, an explanation of their origin. An introduction explains how a confusible arises, and an Appendix lists many of the prefixes and suffixes that, in more than a few words, serve only to compound the confusion. In short, this dictionary seeks to define, distinguish and differentiate. It is felt, too, that it will distract, divert and even delight
