The one that bothers me the most is when someone uses "advise" wrong. "I need advise"...uh noooo, you need "advice". Advise is a verb. I can advise you, I can give you advice. It's not hard people.

Affect & Effect


Quoting TexanMomOf6:

you're....contraction of you are

your... possession

than... comparative

then....sequential

they're...contraction... they are

their.....possession

there......location

hear.....listen

here.....location

wear.....have something on or to "wear" something down

where.....location

we're...contraction...we are

notice: (here, there, where), are locations, same last 4 letters.  

also: (when, then), both end the same

to remember (hear) just think EAR

did I miss any other problem words???

Yes, of course. You're going to get in trouble for your question. LOL

How about loose and lose? I see these misused nearly 100% of the time online!

1 mom liked this

affect...to influence   (Affect my Attitude)

effect.....the result of a cause  (remember the "cause and effect" in science class?)

lose... "win or lose"

loose.. not tight.... too loose


hmmmm. I know there's more. I was lucky to have a teacher that gave us tricks to help remember the definitions.  (thanks Mom!!!)
