One of the many reasons that I like Writers INC is that they have a section called “Using the Right World.” This section is great for helping writers figure out which word they want to use. Here’s an example:
“accept, except: The verb accept means ‘to receive’ or ‘to believe’; the preposition except means ‘other than.'”
