    My husband and I have always struggled with “nonplussed” when reading, because the meaning is counterintuitive, and you never hear it spoken aloud. When I come across it, I remind myself that nonplussed means plussed.

    I hear #3 (“begs the question”) used incorrectly all the time, but I can never remember what the correct usage is. I’m not sure if the example helped me much, so I will continue to struggle with this!

    That piece on the book club friendship, especially the audio portion of it, was poignant and lovely. Thanks for sharing it.
