Posted on Thursday, September 20, 2007

Professor Paul Brians of Washington State University has prepared a formidable list of misuses in English that will be of practical help to any learners of the language.


• Amazing coverage of common errors in English usage, some so common that they are taken for granted and repeatedly committed

• Explanation of individual errors given in concise, illustrative language, making it possible for readers to grasp the point firmly and immediately

• A list of non-errors containing usages which are believed to be wrong but are in fact correct

• Two supplementary lists of word confusions and commonly misspelled words

• A book version, entitled Common Errors in English Usage and containing most of the online contents plus some other useful features
