Question: I read somewhere that you have to use the right words with "convince" and "persuade." What are they?
Answer: You convince OF or THAT.... "I am convinced OF his innocence." "I am convinced THAT he is innocent."
You persuade TO: "Persuade him TO join the group."
Note: People interchange "convince" and "persuade." If you can keep OF, THAT and TO in mind , you won't. RayS.
