A to Z Wrap Up

When I set out to do my A to Z Challenge posts, I didn’t think it would be quite so hard. Initially, I thought I’d have an amusing example of the correct usage of each word pair or group, and really, how hard could that be?

Since I wanted to make sure my definitions were accurate, I spent a lot of time reading entries on dictionary.com, and I was constantly surprised by the numerous meanings of some of these seemingly simple words.

As a native speaker of (American) English, I’ve never bothered to look up a word like do, after all, how many meanings could there be? More than 30. Seriously. Since providing so many examples wasn’t really feasible for this project, I decided to keep the definitions as simple as possible.

I also ended up with a number of pairs and groups that just wouldn’t work well together in a sentence or short paragraph, or words that I just wanted to wax on about, so I saved those aside for a new feature here. Stay tuned for more of my musings with Word Wednesdays.

Huge thanks to everyone who popped in to check out my pieces, I’ve had a ton of fun!
