Do You Confuse Words?

nyplToday, on the New York Public Library website, they have a wonderful post on the common misuse of words—even by bookworms! I know it drives me crazy when reading Facebook posts that contain simple grammatical errors—don’t even get me started on incorrect words. But the NYPL has listed the 14 words most commonly misused, along with their proper meanings and when to use them.

Allude vs elude?

Indeterminate vs indeterminable?

These words and many more made the list. Do you use any of them on a regular basis?
