Confusing Words is a collection of 3210 words that are troublesome to readers and writers. Words are grouped according to the way they are most often confused or misused.
Some of these words are homonyms (words that sound alike but are spelled differently) and some are just commonly confused.
Please note: this site has not been worked on in many years and it has numerous bugs. It is now what some call an "orphan site." I may take it offline at some point but enough people write me telling me its useful that I leave it up. I doubt it will ever be updated so use it as is, or, use other more modern resources. Thanks.
