Custom Sources

Sometimes it gets hard to know if a metaphor used in our mother language keeps working in English. The References tab allows you to search for a phrase, or part of it, in popular English publications. When some reference is found, you can go to the source, read the full article, and make sure whether it fits or not your need.

Another common situation is to make sure about the correct prepositions. Spelling and grammar checkers will tell you whether they are grammatically incorrect, but this is not enough. In the following examples, both prepositions are correct: a) I am in the hospital b) I am at the hospital. However, they have very different meanings. Exploring popular references is all you need to clear up any doubts.

I enjoy writing b/c swapping one word can change the feel of an idea. "Buried under email" —> "Buried beneath email". The B B alliteration upgrades the rhythm. Writing is music. Plus, "beneath" adds to the suppressive power of buried. "Under" just can’t muster the same feel.
