This book comes in response to the needs of users of English for the correct usage of vocabulary and expressions and the accurate distinction among their meanings, especially those that are similar in spelling and writing but have different pronunciations and different meanings and those that are similar in pronunciation and sound the same but have different meanings or words that sound the same but are spelled and used differently. The book is concerned with the linguistic and syntactic usage of these words and the differences between them. It is an important reference for learners of English, researchers, specialists, and teachers of English. It explains the proper use of a pair or more of similar words and shows the correct usage of each one of them and provides a semantic analytical study of them. It gives a full explanation of the meaning of each word in both English and Arabic and uses it in a sentence to show the correct context, the grammatical part of speech of every word, and how it functions in meaning as well as grammatically within the sentence. Moreover, the book indicates the IPA phonetic transcription of each main entry, elucidates the anomalous plurals of nouns, and highlights variations between the American and British spelling when they occur.

Misused Words Have you ever said something and no sooner than it escapes your lips, you wonder—did I say that right? Did I use the right word? Chances are it was one of the 200 words covered in this book. I’m not saying it covers all the words, but it touches base with most of the more common culprits. Ever wonder if you should use ‘good’ or ‘well’? How about ‘lie’ or ‘lay’–that’s one that almost no one gets right. How about then and than, try to and try and, which and that, which and who. There are many that seem to stump people. Learn these words, and many more when you read this book. It’s designed to help you remember the proper word to use in each circumstance. And not just words, but sayings, odd punctuation, and even a few Latin expressions, such as e.g., ergo, etc., and i.e. (Did I just say ‘ergo’. If I do that again, smack me.) I know you think you are familiar with these, but despite their ubiquitousness (Smack me for that also.), there might be a few odd rules that pertain to using Latin expressions that you’re not familiar with. It’s worthwhile to learn them (especially if you intend to write). So, get your act together. Forget the coffee today and pick up a copy of Misused Words. You’ll be glad you did.
