Commonly Misused Words #12 and #13

Here we are again – a new week and time for a few more misused words!

Commonly Misused Words #12 – wretch and retch.
‘The little wretch stole my watch.’ BUT ‘I retched at the sight of all the blood.’

Commonly Misused Words #13 – shudder and shutter. This is a different type of mistake to make from many in the series but one of those that when we are writing, our brain helps us write the wrong word!
‘I shuddered to think what my mother would say.’ BUT ‘I closed the bedroom shutters before going to bed.’

More tomorrow!
