    I didn’t expect this post to appear so soon!

    Reading about the difference between the words ‘climatic’ and ‘climactic’ reminded me about the one time I used the word ‘anticlimactic’ somewhere, so I went to check — I had used ‘anticlimax’ instead so no mistake there :P

    On a side note… I might end up telling all my English teachers about the ABCs series, so you might want to cut down a little on the naughty words (and no, I don’t play Doom).

    Hey, when you post about the letter E, write about the ellipsis too! I have a feeling I’ve been abusing it all these years… there I go again.

    I thought you’d be the first to call me out on some mistake. :) Maybe I’ll change some of the example sentences. I was just bored. Thanks for mentioning the ellipsis too. I hadn’t even thought about it.

    Interesting. I admit conscious/conscience always trips me up, even in speech. Climatic/climactic is another one.

    I always thought capitol was a place (and capital was money held against something). I never knew when they said politicians met at the Capitol, it was a building; I thought it meant somewhere, anywhere in Washington, DC.
