Using Words Correctly 2

Some words sound the same but have different meanings (and spellings):

  • for, four: For shows intent or reason. Four means "4."

    Just for fun, I wrote about four dreams I had.

  • hear, here: Hear refers to listening. Here refers to a nearby location.

    In my dream, I flew away from here and could hear a spaceship zoom past.

  • right, write: Right means "correct" or "directly" or "opposite of left." Write means to use letters to form words and sentences.

    I grabbed on to the right side of the spaceship and made sure to write down its name: Dreamship 1.
