Last year, I point out the time distance to show that I have given this conundrum much thought, someone read a paragraph of my writing and honed in on one particular word 'ROUND'. He said, 'Did I not mean around?' Yes I did mean around, but until he mentioned it I had not realised that I tended to say and write -round the block - all round nice guy - they went round the back - etc. Now, when I am reading, 'round' jumps out at me and I have noticed nobody seems to write around. Any thoughts?
