Chalk Talk: Commonly Confused Words
Students often mix up words that are commonly confused. They may use the words "herd" (i.e.: of cows) with "heard" (the past tense of the sense involving your ears). "Lead" and "led" is another set of homophones that may be mixed up; the latter is a type of metal, and the former is the past tense of the verb that means to guide the way. Another example of commonly confused words is "lightening" and "lightning." It is the second spelling that occurs during a thunderstorm; "lightening" means lessening the load of something. One more: Students may forget the meanings of "figuratively" and "literally," which are important terms to understand in literature. Figurative speech is not explicit and refers to metaphors, while literal speech is explicit and realistic. "Figuratively speaking, I am so hungry, I could eat an elephant!" "Sam literally laughed out loud when thinking about his favorite comedian's jokes."
