Words and Common Confusions

Sooo useful! Love this!

Kristen Twardowski

Today is a day for revisiting the madness of the English language. We have all had moments when our minds blank and we can’t figure out what word we should use. “Affect or effect?” We wonder to ourselves. “Affect is usually a verb, right?” Luckily the fine folks at GrammarCheck have a bright and bubbly infograph that helps writers make the proper word choices.

Back when I was grading students’ essays, this would have been a great resource to hand to them. I’m still half-tempted to send it around to people I know, but I’ll restrain myself.
