VANCOUVER, BC, June 06, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Allusion and illusion.

These two words can sound similar, which probably leads to the frequent confusion in their usage.

To clarify:

- allusion is an indirect reference to something:

In the novel, there are frequent allusions to the author's childhood experiences.

- illusion means something that appears real but is not:

The lines appear to be of different sizes but it is simply an optical illusion.
