As I was typing up a sentence in MS Word:
"... who had a friend that immigrated from..."
the grammatical squiggly line underlined immigrated and I really didn't know what was the problem.
So I clicked on "about this sentence" and:
Commonly Confused Words
"Emigrate" is used with the preposition "from" to mean departure from a country or region. "Immigrate" is used with the preposition "to" or "into" to mean entrance into a country or region.
* Instead of: The family did not emigrate to Germany.
* Consider: The family did not immigrate to Germany.
* Instead of: The children immigrated from New Zealand.
* Consider: The children emigrated from New Zealand.
I didn't know that. I'm just in awe now.
