Confusing Words


          I never appreciated what a difficult language English is until I worked as a consultant for the Royal Literary Fund.

          The language is full of little words whose spelling and meaning is infuriatingly elusive.

          I put together these pages in an effort to help...


          So if you find any of these words difficult to tell apart, have a look here.


         'Its' and 'it's'

         'You're' and 'your'

        'Their', 'they're' and 'there'.

        'Where', we're' and 'were'

          Too, to and two

         Of and Off
