1.woman = 1 female
women= more than 1 female

Ex. "Steffi is a happy woman," is correct. "Steffi is a happy women," is incorrect

2. your = possessive form of "your"
you're= you are

Ex."You're one funny guy," is correct. "Your one funny guy," is incorrect.

3. loose = not tight-fitting
lose = to fail to win

Ex. "She will lose in the final," is correct. "She will loose in the final," is incorrect.

I had to post this. I have no more hair to pull out of my head.

Thank you so much for posting the above. Also, please to your list "Then and "Than". I can't believe that people do not know when to use "your and you're that blows my mind. Grant it, I am not an expert of the English language but what you have posted is basic English.

Not to be rude, but you should try speaking the other languages that people on this board speak for your (and my) benefit.

just as a note here, i am american, despite the flag on your left - so i do know where you are coming from.

however, if you're speaking to the english speaking folks out there, then be my guest and go ahead - you would think that for people that claim that english is their first language, it wouldn't be that bad.

btw - add to the list, their vs. they're vs. there ;) thanx ;)

here's the real stumper:

different than or different from ;)

it sounds ridiculous, but it's amazing how correct either of them can sound in a sentence ;)

Some people are forgetting that many posters here aren't from America or that english isn't their first language. Sometimes english is even their 3rd or 4th language. So give people a break :rolleyes:

Well, technically... :D

It would be: "different from the people whom..."

And I will address this to those whom the English language is a first language. Affect/effect, then/than, you're/your, we're/where, lose/loose, et al, all drive me NUTS!

To those of you abroad, all sins forgiven. Why should we expect anything like proper English from you, when proper (and not so-proper) English-speaking people cannot write it themselves?

The sorriest thing about this is you are getting grammar and spelling assistance from a Brooklynite!

Fuhgedaboudit!
