It’s time for “Confusing Words of the Week” where I take a set of two or three words that get confused and give you definitions and try to give you a memory trick to help you remember when to use which word. If you have words that confuse you, use the Ask PTB tab on the website or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and they may appear here soon!
This week’s words are:
principal: chief; leading; a capital sum of money that draws interest; chief official of a school
principle: a general truth; a rule; integrity
PrinciPAL is your PAL and has ALl the money
