TO HELP YOU WRITE WELL 

The purpose of expository writing is primarily to convey clearly, completely, and effectively the ideas of the author to his readers. Hence the importance of standardized spelling cannot be minimized. A word misspelled or a word misused creates confusion for the reader and possible distortion of the author's meaning.


A thorough understanding and mastery of the following words will prevent much wasted time and misinterpretation.
