    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!

    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!!!)
