hyperdermic/hypodermic: Common Errors in English Usage Entry for Thursday, December 4, 2014

Do you get a little hyper when you have to go to the doctor for a shot? The injection is made with a hypodermic needle. The prefix hypo- means “under,” and the needle slides under your skin (your epidermis).

You may get a little excited, but no need to get hyper about the continuing sale on the Common Errors in English Usage book. This offer will expire over the weekend, so take advantage of it now.
