were/where: Common Errors in English Usage Entry for Monday, September 30, 2013

Sloppy typists frequently leave the H out of “where.” Spelling checkers do not catch this sort of error, of course, so look for it as you proofread.

Things will never again be as they where were. The revised and expanded third edition of Common Errors in English Usage is now available for pre-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 wonder were where the previous edition went, don’t worry—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.
