JUDI'S CORNER

This week features a new site that aims to clarify commonly confused words:

Confusing Words
http://www.confusingwords.com
A collection of 3210 words that are troublesome to readers and writers. Words are grouped according to the way they are most often confused or misused. Some of these words are homonyms (words that sound alike but are spelled differently) and some are just commonly confused.


Each week, I'll answer your questions, post announcements and provide interesting input!  Email me at jrajala@eduhound.com
That's all for this week! "Remember...the Web is a terrible thing to waste!"
