Homonyms


One of the easiest spelling errors to make is confusing one word with another that sounds just like it. Be wary of such homonym groups as to/too/two, whose/who's, and their/they're/there. Be especially careful about its/it's. Though you have undoubtedly learned the difference between them in elementary school, it is easy absent-mindedly to write one instead of the other.
