The English language is a tricky little game, I think we can all agree on that. Getting lost in the sea of homonyms and homophones and all that other jargon, it’s easy to confuse the meanings of a lot of basic words that may overlap , but aren’t necessarily the same thing. We use a lot of words and terms interchangeably, but it’d be a nice touch to up the grammar game and use the language correctly.

Here are some words we think mean the same thing but actually don’t.
