How do you use...(fill in the word)?

It's difficult to know how (and when) to use some words in writing and speaking...

For example, do you know when to use such similar phrases as: moreover, in addition and furthermore?

How can you know?  Unless you have an English teacher right by your side, it may seem impossible.  Well the good news is: it isn't!

Here's all you need to do:

1. Search for the word or phrase you're having problems with (use quotes around the words you want to search for - e.g., "in addition")

2. Locate the times the word appears in professional online sites (e.g., .gov or professional news sites).

3. Write down 6-8 examples and look for patterns in the use of the special word(s).

4. Talk with others about the use of the special words and make them a part of your 'everyday' language.
