GRE words that always confuse me…

Quick post today. At the internship (as an editorial intern), I came across two commonly misused words that (tada!) are also Barron’s vocab! I now give you the Chicago Manual of Style:

Abjure; adjure. To abjure is to deny or renounce under oath {the defendant abjured the charge of murder} or to declare one’s permanent abandonment of a place {abjure the realm}. To adjure is to require someone to do something as if under oath {I adjure you to keep this secret} or to urge earnestly {the executive committee adjured all the members to approve the plan}.

I love it when my worlds collide.

Studying is going slowly–having a hard time fitting it into my new schedule. I did, however, sign up to take a free Kaplan test at my university, Sept 18th. I’m preparing heavily until then!
