Commonly Confused Words - Terms Started With Alphabet D
 

D


data--Data takes a plural verb. You will sometimes see
data used as a singular, usually in the sense of "information." It is
best to use the word "information" in those cases.


different from, different than--These expressions are both widely
used, but different from is preferred.


    This specimen is different from (not than)
    that.

    Unfortunately, different from often leads to
    convoluted sentences. In such cases, use different than as a substitute
    for "different from that which."


discreet, discrete--These words, pronounced alike, have entirely
different meanings. To be discreet is to be prudent, cautious, careful,
trustworthy, circumspect. Discrete means "separate," "distant," "apart,"
"detached."


due to, because of, owing to--Due to is acceptable in subject
complements following some form of a linking verb such as the verbs "be,"
"appear," "feel," and "seem."


    His fall was due to carelessness.


    The use of due to in adverbial constructions that explain some action
    is grammatically sound but avoided by most writers.

    He postponed further
    experiments due to the poor weather.


    Because of is a good substitute for due to in these cases.
    Owing to means because of; because of is
    preferred.
