Ok... I love you all, but this is really bugging me. Loose, Lose, Losing.Submitted by bigmikedude on Wed, 10/01/2008 - 23:33
Loose, Lose, Losing.
This needs to be fixed here. Desperately. I see this mistake more often than the 'their, they're, and there' mistake, or the 'your, and you're' mistake.
Loose = A screw is 'loose'. A screw or a tie can be 'loosened.'
Lose = You 'lose' your wallet, or money to taxes. ( You do not 'loose' it)
Losing = I am 'losing' my mind because of the spelling dilemma here. NOT Loosing! No 'loosing.' 'Loosing is not a word. Actually 'Losing' may not even be a true word, but if it is, that's how you would spell it. The correct word for 'losing' would likely be 'lost'. It is not a 'losing' cause, it is a 'lost cause.' "Fighting a losing battle" should probably be ' fighting a lost battle.'
Ok, love ya, hugs kisses, sorry I chastised you, Lol, I am just helping you.
