t’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:
“Compliment” – an expression of praise, commendation, or admiration
- “She paid me an enormous compliment on my dress.”
“Complement” is something that completes or makes perfect
- “A good wine is a complement to a good meal.”
A complIment is something I like to hear.
A COMPLEment COMPLEtes something.
