100 Words Almost Everyone Mixes Up or Mangles
Paperback ISBN: 1328710327
This newly rejacketed edition of 100 Words Almost Everyone Mixes Up or Mangles presents words that people can't keep straight. Featuring notorious soundalikes such as faze/phase and close calls like suppress/repress, the notes in this book describe language mix-ups and provide solutions to allay readers' anxieties. No doubt this is a book with real cache (cachet?), a book that readers will pour (pore?) over, a book that's both masterful (masterly?) and laudable (laudatory?).
