Are These Distinctions Worth Making?
Arnold, George
Quill and Scroll, v77 n1 p14-15 Oct-Nov 2002
Notes that words such as "can" and "may" are routinely interchanged in casual conversation and professional writing and broadcasting. Proposes that because journalism students are likely to be supervised by people who care about standards, they should make the distinctions between such words. Explains why 10 pairs of words need to be distinguished between. (PM)
