From Our Editors

More than any other European language, English offers its writers and speakers a tremendous range of available word choices. But not every word is right for every occasion, and sometimes there’s one word out there that will complete your sentence more eloquently than any of its synonyms. If you care about your writing and about the words you use, you’ll appreciate Choose the Right Word. Part dictionary, part thesaurus, part style guide, it explains the subtle differences between words, and helps you pick the one that you really want to use.
