Do Not Get Trapped In Those Words!  

Word Traps

" Let's face it - English is a crazy language.


There is no egg in eggplant, nor ham in hamburger; neither apple nor pine in pineapple.

English muffins weren't invented in England or French fries in France.

Sweetmeats are candies while sweetbreads, which aren't sweet, are meat.

Quicksand can work slowly, boxing rings are square and a guinea pig is neither from Guinea nor is it a pig."

So rightly says the author!

So today, I decided to abet all those writers who cannot find enough writing help around the vast expanse of the World Wide Web, or to be precise, do not know where to look for it!

English is alien to all amateurs and professionals. Some do not know how to begin and the others have no idea where to end. Young or old alike, English traps you in its venomous fangs, not caring about who you are. And now you are perplexed about finding a way out of it’s gaping poisonous mouth??

So today, I bring to you a good site, capable of your attention to help you out of the traps of English! Word Traps, is a site which provides you a valuable insight into this confusing
language, English. It has a good many tips and resources to help you get out successfully of the various embedding traps of English!

It contains of many sentences of similar sounding words which often confuse oneself. But not any more!! For this site comes to your rescue just then. The author of the site very rightly explains the phenomenon called English, in the beginning. Sentences like, "The soldier decided to desert his dessert in the desert." often confuse the reader.

Here, the author tells you about his really intrinsic thoughts and at the end, you will also find a very interesting dictionary which helps you differentiate between these similar sounding words!

So go on, pull up your socks and be off to help yourself!
