Editor’s Corner: V is for Valyrian

Good morning, guys and dolls! It seems like an accomplishment to be near the end of the list of Spelling, Vocabulary, and Confusing Words.

Here is one of the last groups of homonyms:

vain excessively concerned about one’s appearance
vane a blade moved by wind as in weather vane
vein blood vessel
vary to change or alter
very extremely
verses lines of poetry
versus as compared to another choice; against
vial small container for holding liquids
vile repulsive, depraved
vice bad habit; immoral practice
vise device used to hold an object firmly

From F in Exams, by Richard Benson
