The Pitfalls of English
 

A Guide and Reference

Authored by Dmitry Orlov

Dmitry Orlov is a linguist and a connoisseur
of the many pitfalls that beset everyone
who uses English, causing us to misspell,
mispronounce and misuse words, embarrassing
ourselves. There are enough of them to fill a
book-this book. When it comes to these
pitfalls, regular dictionaries and spellcheckers
are of no help. His reason for compiling this

Dictionary of English
Heterographs,
Heteronyms
and
Contronyms

was simply this: such a dictionary didn't exist. But now that it does, whenever you aren't sure if you are using the right spelling of a word that has multiple spellings, or pronouncing it correctly within its context if it has multiple pronunciations, or using it in the right sense if it has multiple, contradictory meanings, you can just look it up!
