How to Choose the Right Word

The words “personal” and “personnel” are related in meaning, but they’re not identical. They also belong to different word classes and they’re pronounced differently. The adjective “personal(with the stress on the first syllable) means private or individual. The noun “personnel” (stress on the last syllable) refers to the people employed by an organization, business, or service. Both words derive from the Latin word personalis, meaning of or related to a person.

How to Use “Personal”

The word “personal” is an adjective that has two different meanings: It may be used to describe a person’s unique preferences or qualities, as in “My ‘personal’ favorite musician is Bruce Springsteen” or “My ‘personal’ ability to play baseball is not very impressive.” It may also be used to refer to private experiences or items, as in “The police even went through his ‘personal’ correspondence” or “You have no business tampering with my

definition of personal by The Free Dictionary

Providence compelled all these men, striving to attain personal aims, to further the accomplishment of a stupendous result no one of them at all expected- neither Napoleon, nor Alexander, nor still less any of those who did the actual fighting.
I am telling the history of very simple people, who had never had any illuminating doubts as to personal integrity and honor.
The separate incidents that compose the narrative are, to a very great extent, authentic, occurring, many of them, either under her own observation, or that of her personal friends.
On the other hand, both political science and common sense teach us that in matters of state, and especially in the matter of war, private citizens must forego their personal individual
“He is nothing to me otherwise; I would not cry him up on any personal ground–I would keep clear of that.”
in the Phaedrus, Phaedo, Republic; to which

Insurance Definition

What Is Insurance?

Insurance is a contract, represented by a policy, in which an individual or entity receives financial protection or reimbursement against losses from an insurance company. The company pools clients’ risks to make payments more affordable for the insured.

Insurance policies are used to hedge against the risk of financial losses, both big and small, that may result from damage to the insured or her property, or from liability for damage or injury caused to a third party.

How Insurance Works

There is a multitude of different types of insurance policies available, and virtually any individual or business can find an insurance company willing to insure them—for a price. The most common types of personal insurance policies are auto, health, homeowners, and life. Most individuals in the United States have at least one of these types of insurance, and car insurance is required by law.
