Finding the Right English Words starts where spellcheckers and dictionaries stop. It focuses on 3000 of the most common problem words for Norwegians who use English as a working or professional language. It is the ideal book to have on your desk, whether you work in the public sector, research, business and industry, study or teach. It is written in English; however, all headwords are translated into Norwegian. Finding the Right English Words is a mine of information that will update and amuse you while clarifying some of the finer points of English in non-technical terms.
