Ten words you need to stop misspelling. #1 Lose or Loose. Here are the 10 words most commonly misspelled English words. Portsmouth English Language school has provided a one-stop cure for all your spelling ills. Over the next 10 days we are going to look at 10 words you need to stop misspelling.

There is often confusion over the words loose and lose.

This is due to the lack of consistency in pronouncing words that end oose and ose. Here are some examples of the correct usage of Lose and Loose.

  • This knot is too loose.
  • Please do not lose my book.
  • I had better not lose that file.

One way to remember the difference between the two words is to think that "lose has lost an 'o'" Loose means not tight or free from constraint. To lose means to fail to: (1) keep (2) win or (3) make money.
