Writing Tip: Are We Allowed to Read Aloud?

writing tipHere’s a good writing tip. This is a pair of words that I normally think are pretty self-explanatory… yet I continually see them misused. Allowed or Aloud? What do you think?

Allowed

Allowed means you have permission to do something.

The children are allowed to play with the dog.

Aloud

Aloud means something can be heard.

She spoke aloud without realizing it.

Simple, right? Right! Now you never need to worry about getting them mixed up again. What words do you see misused? What words do you have trouble with?
