Here’s the latest in a continuing series of confuzzling (no, confuzzling is not a proper word, but I love it!) words that make many writers nuts. The only defense against using such words (homophones) incorrectly is to be aware of the possibilities: do (due / dew) you (ewe) mean (mien) scene or seen? Close or clothes? You’re or your? Who’s or whose? Body or bawdy? Spell check is useless with properly spelled — but incorrectly used — words.
This is the reason to ask a trusted friend or professional to read what you’ve written, especially if you’re not sure. Better to know before you print or send your document.
