Dmitry Orlov is a linguist and a connoisseur of the many pitfalls that beset everyone who uses English, causing us to misspell, mispronounce and misuse words, embarrassing ourselves. There are enough of them to fill a book—this book. When it comes to these pitfalls, regular dictionaries and spellcheckers are of no help. His reason for compiling this Dictionary of English Heterographs, Heteronyms and Contronyms was simply this: such a dictionary didn't exist. But now that it does, whenever you aren't sure if you are using the right spelling of a word that has multiple spellings, or pronouncing it correctly within its context if it has multiple pronunciations, or using it in the right sense if it has multiple, contradictory meanings, you can just look it up!
