Word Choice Errors : A Descriptive Linguistics Approach Paperback / softback
American English has many word pairs and trios that are alike enough to be confusing.
Word Choice Errors provides a novel way to empower writers of all levels to cut through the confusion to understand which word to use and why that's the word to use.
Written in a user-friendly style, grounded in descriptive linguistics methods, and eschewing memorization, this book trains writers to detect, interpret, and act on language clues - with exercises, "wild idea" analytical tricks, and additional resources throughout.
It is an excellent resource for instructors and students of grammar or writing/rhetoric, as well as for individuals looking to develop their language and writing skills.
