Why do so many people confuse 'lose' with 'loose' ? 09:12 - Apr 18 with 3485 viewsMaySixth

see it time and time again

lose - be deprived of or cease to have or retain (something).
"I've lost my appetite"

loose - not firmly or tightly fixed in place; detached or able to be detached.
"a loose tooth"

One of the very few things that irks me is the incorrect spelling when referring to loathesome Leeds born peadophile

His name is spelled Savile....not Saville

Love how your example of "lose" in a sentence is "lost" 😂

Lose, choose, fuse... loose, juice, truce, misuse... English language creates confusion with inconsistent spelling, so not shocking that people get it wrong.

I blame Girls Aloud for that one, as an entire generation now believes it’s the correct spelling of “allowed” due to their band name.
