Edit This Grammar Lesson: Morning vs. Mourning
Welcome to another Edit This® grammar lesson. In today's blog post, we will discuss morning vs. mourning. Do you know the difference between them?
Morning and Mourning are examples of homophones – words that sound the same but have different meanings and spellings – and they trip more people up than you think.
So, let's dive right in, shall we?
I probably don't have to tell you that morning refers to the first part of the day before noon.
* Mornings are the best!
* I am more productive in the morning.
Conversely, mourning is an expression or act of deep sorrow, grief, or a period of bereavement following a significant loss.
* We are all in mourning after the loss of our father.
* Steve mourned the end of his son's football season.
