SIMPLE MISUSE

LIKE/AS

What is the difference between "like" and "as"? What is the difference in usage of the two words? Create sentences that show the differences.


TODAY'S WORD

The word for today is "mercurial".
Define "mercurial" and use it in a sentence.


THANK YOU!

Michael's English Usage has been voted Best Educational Blog 2007 by Canadian Blog Awards 2007.

Thanks to all who voted for my blog; thanks to the judges who gave this blog 1st place; but, most of all, thanks to you who want to improve English language usage.

I have no idea what winning means other than the vindication that the proper use of English is a never-ending challenge. I think of English usage with the same motivation that I have always given to the actors I have directed: "We can always do better!"
