Have you got a Troublesome Pair?

03 Oct

DictionariesIs there a troublesome pair of words in your life that you constantly mix up, or have you encountered a terrible twosome?

Suggest a brand new pair for me to write about that I haven’t already covered (do see the index for the ones I’ve done so far) and I’ll include your name (and a link, if you’d like*) on the post when it’s published.

I’m looking forward to hearing about your favourites … pop a comment on here and do share, too!

Index to the Troublesome Pairs so far.

—————————————–

* inclusion of links is at my discretion: if I find the link you give me is to a fake goods sales site or pharmaceuticals etc., I reserve the right to remove it from your comment and not post it in the article)

    Sleight or slight? Both may be worth adding to your list.

      Aha – that’s a good one and I will indeed add it! What link would you like me to add when I mention you as inspiring this one?

    People often get formally/formerly mixed up, even though they probably (surely?) never confuse formal with former. Case in point: http://www.rightmove.co.uk/property-for-sale/property-44635898.html
