Confused. What a great word to think of on Monday morning.
How about confused words? Like the following:
Accept and Except
Accept means to receive. Example: apology accepted
Except means other than. Example: when I pack, I take everything except the kitchen sink
Affect and Effect
Affect (verb) means to influence, to produce a change. Example: imagination affects every part of our lives.
Effect (noun) means a result of an action. Example: your driving habits will have an effect on your gas mileage
A Lot and Alot
A lot means many. Example: a lot of people came to the party.
Alot is not a word. There is however a similar sounding word Allot that means to distribute, to give or assign. Example: 15 minutes were allotted to each of the speakers.
Borrow and Lend
Borrow means to take or accept something for a short time and then return it to the owner. Example: may I borrow a pencil?
Lend means to give something for a short time with the intention of getting it back. Example: would you please lend me a pencil?
Complement and Compliment
Complement means to complete or to make complete. Example: blue accents complemented the color scheme of the room.
Compliment means to say something in admiration. Example: I take it (the question asked) as a compliment.
And here I will wrap it up for this Monday. Have a great week, everyone!
