This book is directed at the Norm Crosby and Professor Irwin Corey in everyone. While the first confusing pair this reviewer looked up, inquire/Enquirer , was not to be found, and while most of the entries seem unconfusing to this rather-educated mind, perhaps this book will be of use to newer speakers of English and to those whose activities include little reading and writing. And, on the opposite side, the book might be consulted by the lexically meticulous, those worrying, for example, about using summary and synopsis as synonyms. A couple items of interest are paean/paeon , the first, a song of praise, the second a metrical unit of four syllables, and that furious foursome, perceptive/percipient/perspicacious/perspicuous which this reviewer leaves to the perspective to dessicate.
