Use of whereas
Dear colleagues,
I have read different information about the use of Whereas at the beginning of a sentence in several grammars and websites. Could you please give me your opinion on whether it can be placed at the beginning or not?
e.g. Whereas some people say that controlling your spending may get difficult, others believe that instituting a budget is doable.
Thank you so much in advance

I agree with Lynne and Maryse, and will add one thing.
"To the left" can indicate location, if movement will be required. If you are in a museum, the guide could indicate a corridor and say "To the left is the Egyptian Room". The guide wouldn īt say "on the left", because the room isn īt right there; it is down the corridor.

Old book on confusing words
Hi everyone,
I was wondering if anyone remembers a really old book, which I believe was from Penguin, which illustrated confusing words.
I remember this sentence: I have an excellent cooker (to show the difference between cook and cooker) and there was a picture of a cooker wearing an apron.
It was an amazing book and I can īt find it anywhwere.
If anyone can help, I will be eternally grateful.
Thanks in advance.
