Okay guys and gals,
I'm trying not to become one of "those people" but there are two mistakes that just set my teeth on edge. It may be because I'm a writer.
Loose and lose. Many people use the word loose when they mean lose. They are both words in the English language with completely different meanings.
e.g. He's going to lose his dog if he doesn't keep him on a leash. Let loose the dogs of war! OR The knots were loose so he slipped out of them easily.
Moral and morale. Again two words in the English language with completely different meanings.
e.g. The moral of the story is good triumphs over evil. The morale of the troops made the difference in winning the battle.
There are other examples of words being mistaken but these two especially are annoying.
