The essential reference for anyone wanting to perfect their written English! The quality of your written English is your passport to both academic and career success. Whether youre a native speaker or learning English as a second language, its very easy to get confused and make mistakes. This book is your essential guide to mastering the subtleties and becoming an expert communicator. Divided into three sections, The Right Word first examines homophones, those tricky words that sound the same but are spelled differently. Entries are organised alphabetically, with meanings and examples (including colloquial ones) being given to facilitate correct use. The book then looks at words that often confuse childish vs. childlike, incredible vs. incredulous, for example before providing a list of the most commonly misspelled words. Keep this book by your desk as a ready reference providing instant access to superb English! Elizabeth Morrison has a BA DipEd (Dist) from the University of Newcastle and has taught Professional and Media Writing in the School of Communications at Charles Sturt University.
