You've sorted out imply and infer. You know it's not all right to use alright. But what about more troublesome usage points, like the difference between may and
might? Or such frequently misused expressions as centre around and beg the question? Is it true that you should always change though to although, till
to until, like to such as?

For anyone intent on preventing (not avoiding) word errors and avoiding (not preventing) usage myths, this workshop will help. Through discussion and examples, the session provides an up-to- date look at some of the most misunderstood and contentious points of English usage, and suggests helpful guides and other resources.

Bring along your most perplexing usage questions.

Cost: $100 for PWAC members and $200 for non-members.

Price includes lunch, snacks and drinks.
