I'm poking fun at myself here. This may just be a bit of dyslexia messing with me. I’ve never been diagnosed, but there are just some words, that for some reason my brain feels the need to twist.
One in particular is Unite.
Unite – to bring together, to combine, to join, to adhere, (you get the idea).
Whenever I see this word, my brain sees
Untie – to undo, to loosen, to free, to separate, (you get the idea).
And vice versa.
It happens almost every time I see either of these two words and I love how they mean the exact opposite. Just by swapping the “I” and “t” you completely undo or combine everything. Ha ha ha.
Makes for some funny reading. Just try it. Think of the Untied Nations, or Uniting your shoes. *snicker*
So what words, if any, trip you up?
