quite and quiet

 

 

I see these words confused all the time -- quite being used for quiet.  Never so far have I seen  quiet for quite.  It easily could be a typo; however, I don’t think so.

RMAC ,

 

Sorry about that ..Did you try to ask the Site Support ?



Usually when that happens it is the author of the comment who has deleted it.  You know the site did not make up a comment to email to you.

@RMAC ,

 

Good for her ..meaning she is gifted..which play a bigger role

in Learning another Language ..some have difficulties and some have it easier ..I had my 1st formal Instruction in English 

in High School ..Our Teacher was good so we learned it better..



I believe she was smart.  I also believe she was conscientious.  A gift for language, I don’t know.

So did my mom.  Her spoken English was outstanding and her penmanship, grammar and spelling were impeccable.  It was important back then, not so much now.



It still is important.  Try leaving some stupid in an email expressing your interest to a lady.  Great odds are she will not be impressed.

My Mom learned English as a second language.  Knew it quite a lot better than most native speakers.

Its true 7344ZAC .. But its also known that not all are good in

their own Language , either in the Spelling or Conjugation ..but 

there are also other reasons like Typing Errors , juggling the 

words and its uses ( not paying attention to details)..always in 

a hurry ( no time for Correction) ..

English does have its downsides and it's apparent that there are quite a few bloggers who consider English their second language.  That said, there is a difference between there, they're and their... two, too and to, here and here, where and we're.  My particular pet peeve is than and then.  There is a difference  between ....... "I prefer taking out the garbage, then making love to my wife" and "I prefer taking out the garbage than making love to my wife".  Other words that some seem to confuse quite a few bloggers.....

 

Compliment/complement

 

Loose/lose

 

Desert/dessert

 

Who's/whose

 

Affect/effect

 

Bear/bare

 

Pour/poor/pore

 

It's/its

 

Bazaar/bizarre

 

 



You need a "hear" for one "here"  A good collection.  Thanks.

Hi RMAC ,

 

Good to see you . 

 

I know how it is to mixed through quiet and quite ..typing Error

or Im in a hurry specially now ..Im still educating my Smart

Phone after several months..

 

QUIET - is silence .. peace...

 

              While

 

QUITE - 1st .. is an Expression of uncertainty

 

                2nd ..to emphasize the degree or amount of something ..

 

Ill try  to give an example : We have to keep quiet ..maybe the

neighbor are quite tired from Work..

 

I tried my best , correct me if Im wrong ..

 

 



Quite Correct

I have decided to remain quite and not to make any comments about this blog topic. I am scared that I might make a grammatical error and it would be quiet disappointing for the MM community :)



 

Common FUNTIMES you are better than that ..

 

You jumbled the 2 words purposely ..Huh ?!

 

Correct is :  decided to remain " Quiet " and it would be

" Quite " disappointing for the MM Community ..

lol...I blame it on our phones. Interestingly enough, the British use of 'quite' is quite different than the American use of the word.


Could be.  Thanks
