Daily Prompt: Dictionary Shmictioanary
Time to confess: tell us about a time when you used a word whose meaning you didn’t actually know( or were very wrong about it, in retrospect).
I have noticed even the most educated people have used these words inaccurately, e.g , (to, too, two) (lose, loose,) and (there, their and they’re).
Even though the above words do not seem difficult, yet they are used incorrectly. One example is :it looses its value.
In the above sentence looses is incorrect, it should have been loses. I think if we think about the pronunciation of these words we’d be able to use them correctly.
Loses has a z sound whereas loose has an s sound.
I try to use simple words when I write my posts.
