Common Errors in English

leave a comment »

Every writer, from time to time, needs some help with certain words and phrases.  Of course there are commonplace problems like accept and except, affect and effect, when to use literally, and the like.  But what about the proper use of allusion? Fables versus allegories, parables, and myths?  What’s the proper word for a person in their 90s?

For these kinds of issues, I’ve used Bill Bryson’s Dictionary for Writers and Editors.  There is also a good website chronicling common errors in English.  Whichever way you want to go about it, most writers need some resource like this when they’re stuck.

If you use something else, please let us know.
