afterwards ("afterward" is correct)
come and see me ("come to see me" is correct)
in route ("en route" is correct)
irregardless ("regardless" is correct)
more importantly ("more important" is correct 99% of the time)
secondly, thirdly (use "second," "third," etc.)
towards ("toward" is correct)
I am confused that which word is correct. I have taught the word secondly, thirdly are also used to write in academic style. In my opinion, both style should be correct according to position of structure.
Jewlery: incorrect; Jewelry: correct
Why use "orientate" when it means exactly the same thing as "orient?"
I needed this!!
Actually, "towards" and "afterwards" are perfectly correct. The -s form merely being more popular in British English, and the 'esless' form being more popular in American English.
