disinterested/uninterested: Common Errors in English Usage Entry for Sunday, May 24, 2015

A bored person is uninterested. Do not confuse this word with the much rarer “disinterested,” which means “objective, neutral.”

This is the ten-year anniversary of the Common Errors in English Usage calendar. To celebrate, we are bringing back some of our favorite interesting, funny, but sometimes merely silly entries through the years before going on hiatus in 2016.

Enjoy the calendar? Buy the book!
