Summary
"100 Words Almost Everyone Mixes Up or Mangles presents words that people can't keep straight, no matter how hard they try. It features notorious soundalikes, such as aural/oral, bawl out/ball out, errant/arrant, faze/phase, gibe/jibe, and waive/wave, as well as close calls and near misses like baleful/baneful, effectual/efficacious, mitigate/militate, and suppress/repress. As in the other 100 Words books, each entry has a definition and pronunciation, and most entries have etymologies. But the meat of the book is presented in the notes that describe the mix-ups and messes and provide the tidy solutions that will allay readers' anxieties. This newly jacketed book also features updates to definitions, etymologies, and quotations based off changes made to the American Heritage Dictionary since its initial publication in 2010. No doubt this is the book people have been looking for; a book with real cache (cachet?), a book that readers will pour (pore?) over, a book that is both masterful (masterly?) and laudable (laudatory?)"--
