A spelling checker will catch the common misspelling “expecially,” but there are also many people who mispronounce “especially” with the first syllable sounding like “ex-” even when they know that the correct spelling begins with “es-.”
This week's entries feature selections from the revised and expanded third edition of Common Errors in English Usage—now available to order on the William, James & Company Web site.
The cover price is $19, but enter the coupon code FIFTEEN to buy it for
the introductory price of $15 through the end of this year.
Read about the new edition on the Common Errors blog.
If you are not ready for a change, you can still order the second edition at the discounted price of $12 (while supplies last).
As always, both editions come with free shipping within the US.
