Loose vs. Lose. Do you know the difference?
First, let’s have a phonics lesson. Remember phonics from grade school? It’s the art of sounds. When I was in first grade, we learned that OO makes an ooooo sound. Like caboose, booth, goose.
Loose rhymes with these words.
The door was loose.
Her tooth is loose.
That woman is loose.
LOSE is when you fail to maintain or cease to have something.
I lose when I play strip poker.
I lose my car keys all the time.
Don’t lose the invoice.
This concludes your grammar lesson of the week. *grin*
