These words are different and have different meanings.

"lose" - to miss from one's possession or from a customary or supposed place

"loose" - not rigidly fastened or securely attached

Also it is "no one" (TWO separate words ) NOT "noone".

Thanks,

Other definitions of the above words may apply. Definitions given are those in common, widespread use.

I gave up on caring about this a long time ago, but....

it cracks me up when someone uses "your" instead of "you're" and claims it was a typo when they get called on it.

that's not a typo, it's a dumb-o
Link Posted: 12/18/2005 12:03:29 PM EDT
IMO your right, most peoples spelling is pretty bad, prolly becuase their in a hurry and dont take there time to spell prove. But this the intarweb so I could care less about correct spelling and grammar. No reason to loose you're head over this.

Affect vs. effect.

"Affect" means to cause change in something, as in, "by yelling at the golf player I affected his concentration."

"Effect" is used thusly: "the effect of yelling at the golfer was that his playing got worse."

Since we're on the subject, it's not "I could care less", but " I couldn't care less" - meaning I
care so little now, I couldn't care less. Got it? (I know you really don't give a shit, but now I
feel better having said (typed) it.)

Yeah, cause "noone" pronounced 'new-nee'... is slang for "nooner"... which is slang for lunchtime sex.

The one i see misused the most around here is "their" and "there".
Link Posted: 12/19/2005 5:07:26 AM EDT
Thanks allot.

(Sorry, had to do that)

My pet peeve is people who say that something is "the most unique", or "more unique".

Unique means one of a kind! You can't be the most one of a kind or more one of a kind.

That's another double. I've seen "viscous cycle" in newspaper articles instead of the proper "vicious circle."

Their, they're now. Spelling is not a big deal. Just throw in a semi-colon now and then to appear literate.

What gets me is when someone says something is "somewhat unique" or "very unique." Unique is an absolute modifier. It means "one of a kind." Nothing can be "somewhat one of a kind" or "very one of a kind." Something is either unique or it isn't.
