9780071357364: 1001 Commonly Misspelled Words: What Your Spell Checker Won't Tell You

English can be a language full of spellings that look right but are dead wrong. Toss in those infuriating sound-alikes (they're/their/there, its/it's, except/accept), which computer spell checkers usually don't catch, and it's no wonder that 99 per cent of us are often embarrassed and undermined by unwitting typos. If you have ever searched for a world in a dictionary and have not been able to find it or if you are at a loss about a word, good news: you've just picked up the book that promises to be the single most invaluable resource on your desk. "1001 Commonly Misspelled Words" is organized phonetically, enabling readers to look up words without having to know how to spell them (look up, for example, illusive, and find the correct spelling: elusive) also packed with excellent memory shortcuts ("there's a rat in separate"), "1001 Commonly Misspelled Words" is a wonderfully painless solution to spelling maladies. Because when it comes down to it, the art of correct spelling is a crucial ingredient for getting ahead in today's knowledgable - er, knowledgeable - world.
