Publisher Comments:

Learn to spell good well Is there an "e" in "judgment"? When do you "imply" rather than "infer"? The only resource that answers both these questions is "The McGraw-Hill Dictionary of Misspelled and Easily Confused Words." It's the only book that includes commonly misspelled words and a comprehensive usage guide in one handy volume. Featured are 7,000 of the most commonly misspelled words with their incorrect and correct spellings and a guide to demystifying homophones ("cite" vs. "site"), grammatically troublesome words ("can" vs. "may"), and subtly different words ("imply" vs. "infer").

Synopsis:

Increase your word power with this heavy-duty two-in-one guide

If you're tired of being affected by the effects of commonly confused and easily misspelled words, then give your spell-checker a break and hit the brakes on those mistakes, because this handy reference will help you separate the "gorillas" from the "guerillas" and figure out how many S's you need to "embarrass" even the sharpest "connoisseur" of "misspellings."

Written by English-language experts and instructors David Downing and Deborah K. Williams, "The" "McGraw-Hill Dictionary of Misspelled and Easily Confused Words" is actually two big references in one volume. You'll get both a speller's dictionary and a dictionary of easily confused words, giving you: 20,000 entries covering the 7,000 most commonly misspelled words in English Tips for remembering how to spell the trickiest words Proper pronunciations, short definitions, and correct examples of usage A guide to demystifying homophones ("cite" vs. "site") Advice for outsmarting grammatically troublesome words Strategies for mastering subtly different words ("imply" vs. "infer") . . . and more

So "whether" you're talking about the "weather" or "writing" to your favorite "playwright," you'll be "exhilarated "by this "enlightening," "relevant," and "indispensable" guide to using the right word and writing it correctly every time.
