Is it CARAT or KARAT? TROOP or TROUPE? LUXURIOUS or LUXURIANT?
ROUT or ROUTE? You will encounter words with similar sounds but
different meanings, nonexistent words, and improper word forms.
WORD USE will develop your skill to use the correct word and NOT
use an incorrect or nonexistent word (IRREGARDLESS, ugh!).
You will be challenged to select the correct answer in a series of
multiple-choice, sentence-completion questions. Your score
histories are retained for subsequent comparison of your progress.
To enrich the learning experience, many questions are derived from
history and literature ("...lend me your ears!").
