Edit This Grammar Lesson: Wine vs. Whine
Welcome to another Edit This® grammar lesson. In today's blog post, let's discuss the difference between Wine vs. Whine. Do you know when to use each one?
Most of you might be saying, "Why, yes, I do!" But for others, it's not that easy.
Wine and Whine are examples of homophones – words that sound the same but have different meanings and spellings – and they trip more people up than you think.
Let's clear up any lingering confusion.
Wine is an alcoholic beverage.
* My friend drinks a glass of wine every night.
* I love wine.
* We'll have a bottle of your most expensive wine.
Whine refers to complaining, crying, high-pitched crying, or an annoying sound.
* Oh, stop your whining and complaining.
* He whines about the dumbest stuff.
* Whining about the loss isn't going to help.
