    differences of usage of words.

    Hi,
    I wonder if there is any kind of dictionary or book to give the differences of meaning of words and
    the usage of them? for example the differences between get and receive and etc.

    You can use Onelook.com. It's a good one.

    Please, correct all my mistakes. I should know English perfectly and if you show me my mistakes I will achieve my dream a little bit faster. A lot of thanks.

    The best method is to look up each word in several dictionaries and compare the listed meanings and usages.

    That's why we give the link to Onelook.com - it gives the definitions from around a dozen different dictionaries all in one place.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    FrazeIt in English - Write Good Sentences,
