Spelling and word choice can be difficult for writers of all skill levels. In this section, we will discuss common problems such as the use of apostrophes and capitalization. We will also examine homonyms—words that have the same pronunciation but are spelled differently—as well as commonly confused words such as affect and effect.

We will also cover pluralization, abbreviation, and when to spell numbers as words instead of using their numeral form (one versus 1).
