"Minute" and "minute" shouldn't be spelled the same.

I'm not content with this content.

I object to that object.

I need to read what I read again.

Excuse me but there's not excuse for this.

Wind this post up and throw it in the wind.

And another:

We've got a lead on the stolen lead.

English is the most rediculous language due to things like this. However it is the only one I know.

Look up Esperanto. Words can be endlessly compounded into one word.

I don't mind the words Kevin posted, there are lots more. I don't like words that are almost like their own opposites. Examples, sanction, on the one hand you approve something, yet it can also mean disapproval. What does bi-monthly mean? Twice a month or every two months?

How about bi-annual and biennial. Twice a year and every 2 years.

I was hoping someone would respond to the "corner spot." cool

It was interesting when we started helping with the kids' homeschooling during Covid. Words we take for granted (especially in the spelling of them), were a bit of a challenge for the youngest (8 at the time). And I learned something I had gotten wrong for as long as I know. Differences with possessive pronouns. nono

Also some major things I learned after my stroke. When everything is "normal," words just flow (spoken, read and written). Actually have to *think" before doing any of it.

I wonder if more people should *think* a little longer before they *speak* .... dang

Keep the "think about it" coming. I've got some neat pictures to add ...

Peggy, I have Grammarly on all of my devices and it really helps. AND it is FREE. How about EASTER Black Friday sale.
