If you write, you know how important correct spelling is. Many people are excellent spellers, but the best of us sometimes misspell words. Spell checkers help, but even they can’t find every misspelled word. That’s why, over this year, I’m going to be writing posts that contain lists of commonly misspelled words. Every few weeks, I’ll publish a list for a different letter, including a little history about it, and then the list of commonly misspelled words.
We may not realize it, but some of the phrases we use every day in our writing repetitive. Some freelance writers get so caught up in trying to reach the word count for their article or blog post that they’ll insert extra words just to get there. Others may use wordy or redundant phrases because they think they sound more authoritative. This post will provide examples of some of these wordy phrases, along with explanations of why they’re repetitive wordy.[Read more…] about Common Redundant and Wordy Phrases
