The Word Book from Writers.com sorts out and clears up some of the confusions and misuses we all face with the English language. This small, (relatively) cheap book packs a passel of help (and some giggles) into its pages. Written by a "non-expert" The Word Book from Writers.com offers a fresh perspective, practical savvy, and occasional sass as it sorts out some misunderstandings and common confusions of the English language. The Word Book answers simple questions (is it discreet? or discrete? sensual or sensuous? ) succinctly, often with examples drawn from amusing, profound, or just plain strange quotations the famous, not-so-famous, and infamous past and present. Other answers go a step further -- and occasionally right over the edge -- with entertaining forays into the quirks and fascinations of English. * Find out the truth about duct tape * Ponder the problems of pablum * Get to the ground floor of Ground Zero * Discover more than you thought possible about amuck * When was the phrase wreak havoc was first used? * Learn why Star Trek weapons were dubbed phasers * Are you titillated or titivated? * And, of course, more!
