Is There a Difference?
Those keen on their pet pedantries love to claim there is a difference in meaning between pairs of words. Sometimes they're right (can you tell forgo from forego?), but sometimes... Is there a difference between:
due to/owing to/because of
judgement/judgment (everyday use/legal use)
on either side/on each side
single and double quotes
