While browsing the internet earlier this week, I came across this post on 10 words you’ve probably been misusing.
I thought it would be useful for a weekly writing tip, since as writers we need to know what words mean. So, instead of plagiarism, I will simply leave you with the list of words (below) and recommend you go over and check out the original post for definitions!
2) Ironic [Check back next week for a Friday writing tip featuring the word ironic complete with an example of true irony!]
Sadly, I have used each of these incorrectly at one point or another. This list is a great example of why we need to know what words mean before we use them.
Have you used any of these words incorrectly before?
Do you have any often misused words to add to this list?
