Confusing Words Of The Week

Words of the WeekIt’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 proofthatblog@gmail.com and they may appear here soon!

This week’s words are:

  • tack – (n.) direction; (v.) to change direction
  • tact – considerate way of behaving so as to avoid offending others

Memory tips:

  • tack – think of the “k” as a road with a choice of direction
