Differences worth knowing

Many people talk in English but they don't know the basic differences between the words they often use while communicating with others.

Each and every- Each is used where they are two objects while every is used to refer regular events.

Loose and Lose- Loose is used as an adjective while lose is used as a verb.

Who and Whom- ‘who’ is used in place of the object of the sentence and ‘whom’ is used in place of the subject of the sentence.

We have to keep in mind these differences whenever we refer these words. For a more descriptive turorial on these differences you may visit Englishleap's Common mistakes in English.
