Reviews

"Room's new work considers pairs and sets of words that are subject to uncertainty in the minds of even native speakers of English. Room takes confusables such as CORRESPONDENT/CO-RESPONDENT, MOLD/MILDEW and QUIET/QUIESCENT and clearly and succinctly explains how they differ. Room also provides an example of each confusable in a plausible sentence." -- Booklist/RBB

"Room, the editor of many reference books on the English laguage, offers a welcome addition to usage guides… Recommended for academic and public libraries, especially those needing an accessible guide to difficult words and usage." -- Library Journal
