Content descriptions

Formatted Contents Note:
Introduction -- Words.
Summary, etc.:
English can be a language full of spellings that look right but are dead wrong. Toss in those infuriating sound-alikes (they're/their/there, its/it's) which computer spell checkers usually don't catch, and it's no wonder that 99% of us are often embarrassed and undermined by our unwitting typos. If you've ever looked up a word in the dictionary and haven't been able to find it, or if you're just plain at a loss about a word, good news: you've just picked up the book that promises to be the single most valuable resource on your desk.
Subject: Spellers.
