Sounds Like : Grammar and Spelling Tips




Sometimes a word sounds as though it contains another familiar word:


• There is no cocoa in a coconut.


• Bated breath has nothing to do with bait.


• Corridor is not related to door.


• Sacrilege has the
i first and the e second, unlike religion.


• Abseiling is quite different from sailing.


Sometimes it is just part of another word that causes a mistake:


• Privilege has no
d, unlike, e.g., knowledge.


• Attach and detach end in
-ach, not -atch, unlike dispatch.


• A protuberance is something that protrudes; but it has no
r after the t.


• Dissect has a double
s, though bisect has only one.


• Psychedelic has an
e after psych, unlike psychology.
