Do you know the difference?

  1. When writing something do you know the difference between to and too? Or then and than? I'm just wondering because I was helping a friend edit her paper and she was all "I think you're the only person who remembers this stuff." I wonder how many people do remember? I'm guessing a lot here. No dumb bunnies here. :flowers:

    I have to say that, yes, I know the difference beweeen"to" and "too" and "then" and "than".
     
  3. Yay - i know...i loved English language/literature at school:yes:

    'I was going to the Mall then Marie came with me and wanted the Chloe bag too':angel:
     
  4. :love: English and fashion! How lovely. :yahoo:
     
  5. I don't know anyone who doesn't know the difference.
     

  6. LOL - I just had to slip that Chloe bag in the example...:graucho:
     
  7. me too. not to mention the difference between "you're" and "your", and "there", "their" and "they're."

    I thought about adding that to my post too. I think some people get confused, especially between "you're" and "your".

    An episode from Friends comes to mind. Ross and Rachel were arguing about a letter she had written to him. He pointed out to her that she had mistaken "your" for "you're".
     
  9. I know the difference! When I tutor kids I see the same problem.
     
  10. This is not a criticism: I'm just noticing the trend of spelling/grammar critique-themed threads have been very frequent as of late. I wonder why? Maybe because school is starting for some...?
     
  11. Yea, I know the difference.

    My biggest peeve is "your" and "you're"
     
  12. the trick I always used as a kid and even now. Was if I could use the word also in the sentence, in place of 'to/too' if i was unsure, that told me that too was the word that I used. If it didn't fit it was to.
     
  13. Yes I do know the difference. My theory is that grammar, spelling, and all that goes with it will continue to decline with so many people text-messaging, using all the abbreviations that are needed.
     
  14. Yes. I'm a grammar and spelling nazi...I just can't let those little mistakes slide.
     
  15. Mine too!
