You are a victim of the #1 writer's mistake, the WRONG-WORD ERROR. This is not surprising, considering the number of confused and misused words in English. But what can you do about it?

Fortunately, the number of words that cause most wrong-word errors is manageable. There are 158 of them -- and THE RIGHT WORD! has them all! You probably are aware of the kinds of words that cause problems: (1) homonyms, such as "compliment"/"complement," and (2) words misused so often it is hard to remember their correct usage, such as "fewer"/"less."

  • DON'T leave your writing to go to a dictionary -- whether online or offline. This is time-consuming and causes you to lose track of what you were thinking.
  • DON'T take a chance and write the word you think is right. (You have a 50% chance of getting it wrong.)
  • DO keep THE RIGHT WORD! close at hand when you write. Just: (1) quickly flip to the word you are questioning; (2) Voila -- there it is. the right answer! Easy! Quick! Accurate!
THE RIGHT WORD! is the indispensable writer's tool. Protect yourself against wrong-word errors.
You'll wonder how you ever wrote without it!`
