Which Word When is a fantastic book! Since I’m always trying to get artists to talk and write more about their work, I thought I’d better keep providing you the tools to do a better job of it.
In any event . . .
The book may be out of print now. My $4.95 paperback was published in 1989 and I noticed on Amazon (the link above) that they’re going for $2.10 now.
The subtitle of the book is "The Indispensable Dictionary of 1,500 Commonly Confused Words." Learn the difference between:
- Lie/Lay (rest and recline/put and place)
- Farther/Further (the first is for physical distance)
- Evoke/Invoke (the first is to bring to mind)
And many more.
Maybe there is a new book that has replaced this one, but I haven’t heard about it. Mine is still getting a lot of use.
