ChanteSez … Lose the extras

9 Jan

So often, less is more.

So I’ll keep today’s grammar tip brief.

Lose the extra “o” that is wrongly forced into “recurring.”

  • Wrong: Reoccuring
  • Right: Recurring

Do the same for the “en” that incorrectly starts “titled.”

  • Wrong: Entitled
  • Right: Titled

    Don’t forget “forego” and “forgo.” Forego is to go before, but forgo — without the “e” — is to go without. Lose the “e” to go without!

    Don’t forget “forego” and “forgo.” Forego is to go before; forgo — minus the “e” — means to go without. Go without the “e” to go without in forgo!

    I’m entitled to my opinion.

      Why, yes you are, Chris. But if you’re writing a book, please don’t say it’s entitled “Everybody Has One.” Thank you, as always, for reading!
