    Commonly confused words

    Lose - Loose

    Lose (verb) - to misplace; e.g: did you lose your glasses again?

    Loose (adjective) - not fitted; e.g: I've lost twenty pounds, and now these jeans are really loose.

    English has a lot of commonly confused words. Not one... or ten... or twenty... thirty? No, but a lot!

    They either look alike, sound alike or, worst of all, look and sound alike but have completely different meanings. Yet they are eeeaaasy, aren't they?
