I've just published two more hubs in my "How to..." series. The latest being a Master List of of commonly misused words. In an effort to make it the most comprehensive list (besides the dictionary) I solicit your help!
If you submit a word vs. word that is commonly misused via comments or email and I add it to the list, then I will back link to your name and give you all the glory!
Brupie was the first when he suggested famous vs infamous!
Ernest, isn't that bizarre? I do that too sometimes, more often than I like! I've caught myself doing that with your and you're as well - I type it and when I see it, even as I type, my brain freaks and wonders what the heck my fingers were thinking.
@wilderness I have affect vs. effect on the list... i sometimes struggle with sell vs. sale mostly because in my head a southern accent kicks in and pronounce "sell" as "sale"... this especially happens when I am around family!!
In MD and UT, it's the opposite - I hear people saying something is "on sell". Then here in the south, yes, people say they're going to "sale" something. Unfortunately the kids get confused and don't know how to correctly spell the word they mean.
