Why The Word Confusion?

When people try to translate spoken ideas into writing, it is often hard to remember correct grammar.

Also, people hear incorrect grammar used so often that correct grammar might sound odd or even wrong.

Homonyms can present an especially difficult problem because they sound alike, but the different spellings mean different things.

To (preposition)— function word to indicate direction toward - предлог направления движения;

Too (adverb)— also, to an excessive extent - также, тоже; слишком, излишне;

Two (noun)— the number between one and three - цифра "два"

Changing one letter in a word could alter the whole meaning of a sentence.

Pray (verb)— to make a request in a humble manner; to address a god

Prey (verb)— to have an injurious or destructive effect (noun)— victim
