IT’S NOT ‘PEEKED’ MY INTEREST

OR ‘PEAKED’

BUT PIQUED

‘PIQUED MY INTEREST’

THIS HAS BEEN A CAPSLOCK PSA

THIS IS ACTUALLY REALLY USEFUL THANK YOU

ADDITIONALLY:

YOU ARE NOT ‘PHASED’. YOU ARE ‘FAZED.’

IF IT HAS BEEN A VERY LONG DAY, YOU ARE ‘WEARY’. IF SOMEONE IS ACTING IN A WAY THAT MAKES YOU SUSPICIOUS, YOU ARE ‘WARY’.

ALL IN ‘DUE’ TIME, NOT ‘DO’ TIME

‘PER SE’ NOT ‘PER SAY’

THANK YOU

BREATHE – THE VERB FORM IN PRESENT TENSE

BREATH – THE NOUN FORM

THEY ARE NOT INTERCHANGEABLE


WANDER – TO WALK ABOUT AIMLESSLY

WONDER – TO THINK OF IN A DREAMLIKE AND/OR WISTFUL MANNER


THEY ARE NOT INTERCHANGEABLE (but one’s mind can wander)

DEFIANT – RESISTANT
DEFINITE – CERTAIN

WANTON – DELIBERATE AND UNPROVOKED ACTION (ALSO AN ARCHAIC TERM FOR A PROMISCUOUS WOMAN)

WONTON – IT’S A DUMPLING THAT’S ALL IT IS IT’S A FUCKING DUMPLING

BAWL- TO SOB/CRY

BALL- A FUCKING BALL

YOU CANNOT “BALL” YOUR EYES OUT

AND FOR FUCK’S SAKE, IT’S NOT “SIKE”; IT’S “PSYCH”. AS IN “I PSYCHED YOU OUT”; BECAUSE YOU MOMENTARILY MADE SOMEONE BELIEVE SOMETHING THAT WASN’T TRUE.

THANK YOU.

*slams reblog*

IT’S ‘MIGHT AS WELL’. ‘MIND AS WELL’ DOES NOT MAKE GRAMMATICAL SENSE.

SLEIGHT – DEXTERITY, ARTIFICE, CRAFT (FROM ‘SLY’)
SLIGHT – VERY LITTLE, FRAIL, DELICATE

IT’S ‘SLEIGHT OF HAND’.

DISCRETE – SEPARATE, DISTINCT, PARTED

DISCREET – SUBTLE, STEALTHY, DIPLOMATIC

BORN= existing as a result of birth

BORNE= carried or transported by

LIGHTENING = to make something less dark in color or to lessen its weight

LIGHTNING = bright flash of light during electrical storms

{This is quite helpful. Thank you Rebloggers.}

((adm: I just want to add-

Loose- untight

Lose- opposite of winning))

((ALSO: A fun trick – 

Affect = Action 
Effect = End Result ))

There = In that place

Their = belonging to them

can’t = a contraction for cannot

cant = a tilt or lean at an angle, usually to accommodate accessibility

Here’s three more I see a lot

Definitely – a synonym for absolutely, completely, totally, etc.

Defiantly – to behave with defiance

Worse – a relative description of poor quality, “things are getting worse”

Worst – the absolute version of worse, “it was the worst”

Worse is used when a thing is badder than it used to be. Worst is used when it has become as bad as it could possibly get.

Lets – permits or allows, “the teacher lets the kids go for recess”

Let’s – a contraction of let us, “let’s go to the park”

It’s not “could of” it’s “could have” or “could’ve”. Everytime I read “she could of” something dies in me. It doesn’t make any sense grammatically. I will stop reading your text/ story instantly.

You BEAR a burden or a circumstance. As in carry or endure it.

You BARE your soul to someone. As in make your soul naked (figuratively speaking).

If something is more than you can BARE, you’re saying it’s too big for you to make it naked.

If you tell someone to BEAR with you, you’re asking them to put up with you.

If you tell them to BARE with you, you’re telling them to get naked with you.

Also…

A HORDE is a group of living beings. You can have a HORDE of invaders or mosquitos.

A HOARD is a bunch of… stuff. Treasure, gold, or whatever.

You can HOARD wealth, but you cannot HORDE it.
