4. Unfortunate Word Choices
These notes are from the 2018 version of the course. A significantly expanded new version will be made available once the 2019 course starts. 🤓
In this lecture, we continue to discuss troublesome words. We begin by looking at words that can be deleted and phrases that can be shortened. We then move onto English words with multiple meanings (standard and specialised), relative clauses (is it which or that?), pairs of commonly confused words (advise/advice, then/than), and finally give a brief overview of British versus American spelling.
