No closed doors: Accessible vs. assessable

If you Road-sign-464659_1920want to get your foot into the publishing world’s door, you’ll want to know the difference between accessible and assessable. These two words often are confused because of their similar pronunciations and spellings.

Accessible means easily entered, approached or obtained. For example: Our building is accessible by wheelchair. By the way, you don’t need to place “easily” before “accessible”; to be accessible implies ease.

Assessable is a quality of something for which the value, significance or extent of can be estimated or determined. For example: “Among the assessable elements of writing are diction and a consistent point of view.”

Need an editor? Having your book, business document or academic paper proofread or edited before submitting it can prove invaluable. In an economic climate where you face heavy competition, your writing needs a second eye to give you the edge. Whether you come from a big city like Orlando, Florida, or a small town like Oakley, Idaho, I can provide that second eye.
