Do you need a ‘hangar’ or ‘hanger’ to hang your blouse? Is there a difference between ‘habitant’ and ‘inhabitant’? Is a person who is ‘famous’ more widely known than a person who is ‘infamous’?

The English language is full of such confusing words. Some words look alike, some have similar meanings and some have the same meanings but are used with different sentence structures.

The Wrong Word Dictionary is the book to read if you want to avoid using the wrong word when you speak or write. Just flip through the pages and you will definitely improve your vocabulary.
