I just thought this was common knowledge.
yup, when i was a beta reader, i had to fix blonde to blond all of the freaking time for people. and it is funny because it sas it is something that needs to be taught about english, but these are all french words we thieved.
i didn't even know there were different spellings of brunette and fiancee
Things that should be taught in English lessons, but aren't.
WAT I thought the blond/e thing was just a difference in people's spelling preference or something My life has been a lie.
Well all of these words are French but come on English if you're going to rob other languages at least take care of the things you take!

A Little Cheat Sheet To Avoid Using The Word 'Very'. Awesome quote from Dead Poets Society
"So avoid using the word 'very', because it's lazy. A man is not very tired; he is exhausted. Don't use very sad; use morose. Language was invented for one reason, boys--to woo women--and in that endeavor, laziness will not do." --Robin Williams as Mr. Keating in DEAD POETS SOCIETY This pin includes some other words to consider using in place of "very".

Know your Latin: i.e. vs. e.g. | by Ann Edwards | 09-Oct-14 | #writing #grammar
I.e. is the abbreviation of the Latin phrase ‘id est’, meaning ‘that is’; e.g. is the abbreviation of the Latin phrase ‘exempli gratia’, meaning ‘for example’.
Correct use of i e & e g
i.e. = "in essence; in other words" e.g. = "for example" Thanks for the tip Grammarly
