_WHAT THE PROS SAY ABOUT WORD TRIPPERS_

_“I highly recommend _Word Trippers_—a delightful and useful
reference with great information from a world-class book editor,
Barbara McNichol.”_
- ANITA PAUL, SPEAKER, FORMER COURT REPORTER
-------------------------

_ “As a professional writer, I enjoy the twists of the English
language, such as when to use peek or peak, and course or coarse. Like
big rocks on a path, I trip over how to use ‘lay vs. lie’ and
‘compose vs. comprise.’ That’s when I peek at Barbara’s _Word
Trippers_ ebook and get back on course.” _
- Patrice Rhoades-Baum, copywriter, marketer,

_WORD TRIPPERS—_

* easy to find using your computer’s “find”feature
* focused on everyday—not obscure—words
* easy to follow examples of usage that clarifies, not confuses

EXAMPLE #1: FAMOUS, NOTORIOUS – “Famous” means known widely
and favorably, while “notorious” means known widely and
unfavorably. “The young actress became _famous_ for her
Oscar-nominated role, and then became _notorious_ for her drug use and
underage drinking.”

EXAMPLE #2: FEWER, LESS – “Fewer” is used when units or
individuals can be counted; less is used with quantities of mass,
bulk, or volume. “There are _fewer_ letters to be written today than
yesterday.” “The mail takes up _less_ space than I thought it
would.” Generally if the word has an “s” at the end, use
“fewer” – fewer dollars but less money; fewer muffins but less
food.
