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:
- ballot – a sheet of paper used to cast a secret vote
- ballet – a theatrical art form using dancing, music, and scenery to convey a story, theme, or atmosphere
- ballot – remember the “o” is the same as in vOte
- ballet – I just think of the sound I would make if I was on tippy toes “EEEEEEE”
