Wrong Word

Using the wrong word is common. We create errors when we don’t make use of a dictionary and/or thesaurus. The best way to correct this error is to think about the sock analogy.

Every sock has a match. No one person just buys one sock. In comparison, the word you choose must match the overall meaning you want to convey within your sentence.
