[Homework]2011-03-15 How to Use a Word

The word of day for March 15th is continual ,spelled c-o-n-t-i-n-u-a-l.
Continual is a adjective that means continuing indefinitely  in  time without  interruption.It can also mean recurring instead uauslly rapid succession.Here is the word used in the sentence.
The continual /of the car outside made very difficult for /  focus on our work .Since the mid 1900s many /  have  drawn a distinction between the words continus and continual. They insist  that continual shuld only mean accruing at regular  inthervious  as  in the teacher was annoyed  by the continual interruptions . Whereas  continuis should used to mean continuing without interuption as in the batteries provied power for up to five hours of contintiuis use.This distinction over the looks the fact that the word continual is the old one and was used with both meaning for centuries  befor continuais appeared on the sence.The pence grabe sence of  continuais become established only in the 19century and never scceeded in completely driiving out the  /sence of continual.Today, continual is more likely of to mean recurring but it also continuals to be used as the  it has been used since the 14century was the meaning continuaing without interruption.
With your word of the day I am Peter Socolowsik.
