Would you drive a caddie, a caddy, or a Caddy? Would you have a cadenza or a credenza in your house? Would you take a picture with a camera or with a chimera? Would you place a caller, choler, collar, or color on your pet?

You're doing a really great job with this interesting series

I'd add to that first word that cache is now a common word in computing for information stored temporarily to improve computing performance.

e.g. when browing on the web you computer may store some images and ages from sites you regularly go to to save copying them down from the remote site every time, and your ISP will save commonly used sites - eg the Google home page - on their servers rather than goingto Google to download it every time one of the ISPs users goes to Google.

Thank you, Peter. smile I'm glad to know you are enjoying the 'confusing words' series.

I don't always include all of the meanings of each word. There are times that would limit me to only one set of words per article. But you are right, cache is a common word in the computing world. I probably should go back and add that one.
