What's the difference?
As the book (and the section in this website) has a unit on the most common mistakes with confusing words, this section looks at examples where mistakes have not been made - yet - but where learners (and even natives) are often not sure which is the best word to use when writing (or speaking). So here we have some common examples of confusing words. Like everything else in this website, this is likely to be added to.
The examples listed include examples that have been moved from Ask Doctor Dot Fullstop, and also some confusing words featured in the book (with their page numbers).
So we shall begin. Click on the examples below for explanations.
