This site seems to have to do with words and their correct usage.

This is why I thought you might want to check out my new blog called “Scientific Words of the Week” that begins Saturday, Janurary 2nd, 2010. (You can visit and/or bookmark it now, but the first real posting isn’t until Saturday.)

Here’s the link:

I hope you’ll check it out.

P.S: You might be interested in a new series of books called “EasyTerms” (no space after “Easy”)… you can find them at BarnesAndNoble.com and at least one other major online bookseller. More info is at:
