Meaning and usage of words

Some grammar rules (and embarrassing mistakes!) transcend the uniqueness of different regions and style guides. This new International Grammar section by OnlineBookClub.org ultimately identifies those rules thus providing a simple, flexible rule-set, respecting the differences between regions and style guides. You can feel free to ask general questions about spelling and grammar. You can also provide example sentences for other members to proofread and inform you of any grammar mistakes.

The word clairvoyant is a noun and means having a sense of the future like a psychic or fortune teller. It can be used as a synonym for those two words. It is somewhat more formal than psychic or fortune teller.
