Из недоконспектированного

Разбиралась на рабочем столе и нашла несколько страниц, отфотокопированных из The Economist Style Guide, с пометками. Запишу тут. 

populace
is a term for the common people, not a synonym for the population.

positive
means definitely laid down, beyond possibility of doubt, absolute, fully convinced or greater than zero. It does not mean good. It was a positive meeting probably means It was a good, or fruitful meeting.

practicable, practical
Practicable means feasible; practical means useful
