I originally posted this on my Tumblr blog, but I thought it was worth re-posting on here as it is about something that really gets on my nerves. I hope you don’t mind me ranting about this:

Spelling the word “lose” with an extra “o” creates an entirely different word with a different meaning.

You loosen your tie.

You set the juice loose.

There is a TV show called Loose Women.

But you do NOT loose your keys, you LOSE them.

Someone who you may think is an idiot is a LOSER.

And you most certainly don’t loose the plot.

Please bear this in mind the next time you post something on the internet.

Thank you.

      Oh yes I tried that quiz a few days ago. Think I got all of them right bar one. That little article on there about words you must stop misspelling is good too. Few things annoy me but bad spelling and grammar anywhere really gets me going!
