|Comment||Thank you so much for the answer! Actually, it was the clarification on "different than" that I appreciate so much. It was clearly explained and will now become one of my pet peeves. The original question came from a footnote, I think, in a book I was reading in high school, perhaps "Paradise Lost", that mentioned a particular name for the addition of -st to certain words. It may be lost forever.|

I`ve taught writing or some aspect of the English language for nearly 35 years. I can answer nearly any question on grammar, usage or meanings of words above dictionary usage. An avid crossword fan and writer, I can also answer questions about business presentations and resumes.
I have worked with words all my life as a teacher of the language and as an amateur and professional writer. Communication is a vital force in my life and everyone else's.
