This Week: On the podcast, More Commonly Confused Words + footnotes/endnotes

About the time that computers began to make the creation and printing of footnotes extremely simple and cheap, style manuals began to urge a shift away from them to endnotes printed at the ends of chapters or at the end of a book or paper rather than at the foot of the page. I happen to think this was a big mistake; but in any case, if you are using endnotes, don’t call them “footnotes.”


This week on the podcast we discuss more commonly confused words.
