Veraciously voracious!

A writing tip for some easily confused prose.

veracious:

Adjective; truthful

voracious:

Adjective; Wanting or devouring great quantities of food; Having a great appetite for anything

The way I’ve decided to remember:

  1. Alphabetise the words in my head
  2. Remind myself that “I’m truthfully hungry!”

Ah English, you and your gloriously bastardised European funicular. Wait, vernacular. That other one refers to those brilliant slanted railways. They’re found mostly in Europe, so what I said wasn’t entirely absurd.
