Confusing Words

Sunday, January 18th, 2009 by | Filed Under: Cool Sites

Confusing Words

There are a lot of confusing words out there! For example, affect, effect, affluent, effluent, their, they’re and there.

I often have trouble using affect and effect correctly. So much trouble that I often double or triple check to make sure I have the right one. But now, I have a really easy resource I can use to check them out!

On the Confusing Words Web site, you can check out tons of different words. Just type in the word you’re unsure about and click Find.

As an example, I looked up affect. Not only does it give the definition for affect, but it gives the definition for effect as well. It also shows examples of how each are used, making it easier for you to see the difference. Also, in the Notes section, it gives you a way of remembering the difference between them. How cool is that?!

I think this is an amazing resource and I hope you enjoy it too!
