HOW TO REMEMBER TO COMPLIMENT OR COMPLEMENT

Ok, so I admit. I always have to look this one up. I finally figured out a way to remember it.

When you complEment something, you are complEting it. As in, your bracelet complements your blouse.

When you compliment someone, you’re just saying something nice about them.

Now, if I can just figure out a way to remember principle vs. principal….

Got any good tricks to share on remembering homophones?

When I was in elementary school, they used to say "your principal is your pal." That's really dorky, but it always stuck with me. So, when I think of "principal" ending in "-pal" I think of a person in charge, like a school principal. Or, the head of a company or the most important idea, and so on.

Oh...very cool. Stephanie. THANK YOU! That's going to save at least 3 hours of cumulative lifetime dictionary time.
