Using Words Correctly 1

Vet with a kitty

These words are easy to mix up:

  • for, four: For is about purpose. Four is the number 4.

    I took Mittens to the vet for a checkup, and the vet checked all four of his paws.

  • hear, here: Hear means "use ears to sense sound." Here means "this place."

    I could hear Mittens purr, so I said, "He likes it here."

  • knew, new: Knew means "had knowledge." New is the opposite of "old."

    I knew the vet would give Mittens a new collar.
