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:
- pray – to beseech
- She went to pray for the rain to stop.
- prey – a captured victim
- The rattlesnake was stalking its prey.
- pray – Think of the “A” as the hands clasped in prayer
- prey – Think of the “E” as enemy, what the stalker is after.
