Welcome to, a website devoted to helping us all sound a bit more intelligent. It’s aimed primarily at students, professionals, and those learning English as a second language. But it’s also for anyone who wants to write and speak more accurately. I’ll also address those pesky differences in meaning of those words that sound so much alike!

If you were a subscriber before, welcome back! If you’re new, we’re glad to have you. Tell your friends, or at least slip the url under their door.

I could write about why such a site might be necessary. But really, do I need to?

If you sign up at the bottom of the site, you can receive a new, short entry every Tuesday.

So sign up, read the posts, and enjoy speaking and writing with more confidence.
