    Would you accept this clause in the terms and conditions?
    Would you except this clause in the terms and conditions?

    Two very similar words in reasonably correct sentences, but they have opposite, or at least different, meanings. There are many similar sounding words that can cause confusion if they are transposed - affect and effect are two of the commonest.

    Homonyms, homographs and homophones can be included, but contribute your favourites / most irritating / most frequently incorrect, and if you want to offer a sentence to show the difference, please do.
