Aaaaaaargh! How can anyone hire someone who doesn't have a basic grasp of the language to work in a publishing firm!

Of course verify and evaluate mean the same thing--just like fact and opinion, truth and belief, and jam and marmalade. In fact, all words mean the same thing.

What are you, some kind of reactionary word snob? How dare you discriminate based solely on meaning?

"It just depends on what dictionary you are using." Nah - that would just confuse her even more (but it would be fun to say!).

Words are all an illusion - when I use a word it means what I want it to mean.

Somehow, that should read:
Words are an illusion, lunchtime doubly so.

well, when performance reviews come up, just tell her performance will be verified, not evaluated.
