Appendix C. Word usage

This list of words and terms is not intended to take the place of a general dictionary but instead gives advice that is pertinent to technical writing where usage might be more specific or differ from that in the dictionary. Terms have also been included that are found to cause difficulties for technical writers and where consistency of expression needs clarification.

For general spellings, definitions, etymologies, and rules about parts of speech, see Merriam-Webster’s Collegiate Dictionary.
