Dictionary of Confusible Words
Is your new velvet dressing gown 'luxurious' or 'luxuriant'? Can you be 'domineering' or merely 'dominating? Over 1000 confusing words are contained in this useful book. Genuinely troublesome words which people really do get into a muddle over, e.g. constraint/restraint, consist/comprise/constitute/compose, guarantee/warranty, pose/propose/propound.

For every word in the book an illustrative sentence is given showing the correct use of the word. This reader-friendly feature is unique to the book.
