Word Choice: Continuously and Continually

It can be easy to mix up continuously and continually when writing. Still, you should be careful to make the right word choice appropriate for your sentence. Careful word selection can greatly enhance your writing. It can also help your reader understand exactly what you are trying to express. In this blog I will explain when continuously and continually are appropriate.

Continuously means ‘unceasingly’ or ‘uninterrupted’. For example, I might say that “my ears were ringing continuously throughout the concert because the music was so loud”.

Continually, in contrast, means ‘regularly’ or ‘frequent intervals’. For example, if I make a habit of going to loud concerts, I might say that I “continually attend loud concerts”.

If you are not positive whether you have chosen the right words in your writing, then it could be very useful to submit your work to proofreading services.
