Editor’s Corner: E is for Elusive

It’s Monday, so I’m going to let grammarbook.com do most of the work for the letter E. The definitions and most of the examples are from the web site. Not too many words today, but these couplets get a lot of people confused. I have to say, that definition for “illusive” is a little elusive to me. I hope you enjoyed the weekend.

e.g. for example

Example: My living expenses have increased, e.g., rent, food, and utilities.

i.e. that is, in other words

Example: My living expenses have drained my finances, i.e., I have less money in the bank at the end of every month.
