Using Words Correctly 1

flying in a ship

Some words have subtle differences in meaning. Pay attention to the following:

  • already, all ready: Already is an adverb telling when. All ready is a phrase meaning "completely ready."

    I have already gathered everything I need for my journey.

    I am all ready to launch my ship of imagination.

  • altogether, all together: Altogether is an adverb meaning "completely." All together describes people or things gathered in one place at one time.

    The ship is altogether prepared.

    My food and gear are all together in the hold of the ship.
