CHOOSE YOUR WORDS

There are a lot of words in English that look or sound alike but have very different meanings. It’s easy to get them confused and most electronic spellcheckers won’t be much help in this type of situation: they can tell you if a word has been spelled wrongly but they can’t generally flag up the misuse of a correctly spelled word.
Here are some pairs of words that regularly cause people problems:

SELL (verb): to give something to someone else in return for money
Examples:
This page is intended to help vendors find out how to sell (verb) goods on eBay.
The shop sells (verb) drinks and snacks.

SALE (noun): an act of exchanging something for money
Examples:
The building company gets 15 percent commission on each house sale (noun).
The entire week following Christmas is a bargain hunter’s dream as stores deeply discount merchandise for quick sales (noun) at year end.
