*The misuse of 'forbear' for 'forebear' is now so prevalent as to have
become idiomatic. That doesn't make it etymologically correct, of course, but dictionaries have a duty to reflect the language as it is used (which is not always
equivalent to how it should be used) and the ignorance of the majority has finally prevailed. (I suspect it won't be long before we see 'fortuitous' as a
synonym for 'fortunate' – blame football commentators for that one – and 'chronic' for 'very bad'.) If you missed this one, don't deduct a point. However,
award yourself an extra one if you marked it.
that's the fun part over with, but if you're serious about doing this sort
of thing for a living then you'll need some help to get started. That's where
my guide comes in - your next stop on the sidebar.
