It’s been some time since I’ve posted a Tuesday Tip.

I’m constantly making notes about words that are commonly misused as I go through my work of editing and proofreading. Here is today’s common mistake, and hopefully this will help prevent you from making this same error in the future.

The word versus is often used to mean ‘opposed to’ or ‘against’ or ‘in contrast to’. It is commonly abbreviated as vs. or v.

On the other hand, verses is used as the plural form of the word ‘verse’ meaning ‘a poem’.
