Gentle Readers . . . and Maxwell,
During our previous TIP TUESDAY post, a couple of questions came up, so they must be answered.
Lovely Inger of Desert Canyon Living asked about the difference between complex and complicated.
My Roget's Super Thesaurus tells me that complicated and complex are synonyms for each other.
Both are adjectives and mean something intricate, so I think it's safe to say that they can be used interchangeably, based on the one you prefer at a given moment or the one that might sound a bit better.
Darling Martha of Plowing Through Life wanted to know when to use awhile or a while. This one irritates me––not because you asked, Martha, but because I see awhile all the time when it should be a while.
