When to use "afterwards" and "subsequently"?
This very short video shares the information I found in books about English language when choosing between two or more words.
- Right Word, Wrong Word by L. G. Alexander, Longman, 1997 (5th edition)
- Word for Word by S. Clark & G. Pointon, Oxford Press, 2003
- Practical English Usage by Mickael Swan, Oxford University Press, 2005 (3rd edition)
- Little Gold Grammar Book Brandon Royal, Maven Publishing, 2010
- The Blue Book of Grammar and Punctuation by Jane Straus, Lester Kaufman, Tom Stern, Wiley, 2014 (11th edition)
- Practical Punctuation by Ian Gordon, Heinemann, 1978
Choosing the right word when writing and speaking is a delicate exercise yet of crucial importance when it comes to the quality of your communication.
As a non-native speaker, I tremendously struggle with improving my English or keeping on improving my English I should say. Several books are available out there for us to read. A few years ago, I opened some of them and found them all pretty boring. Still, I wanted to improve my English and then decided to write these short videos to sum up my readings. The playlist WORD CHOICE gathers all the videos I have written and created so far. There are more to come!
I hope these videos about the choice of words in English will help you too!
