Not sure how to spell a word? Hesitate no longer.

Great or Grate?

Your choice!


Exemple : ‘’I think the new vase looks great in the dining room!’’

“Great” and “grate” are homonyms which causes confusion. “Great” is an adjective which can mean that something is large in size or that something is very good or very important.


Exemple : ‘’Can you grate the cheese for dinner please?’’

“Grate” is a verb which generally refers to cooking and the cutting of food into lots of very small pieces on a grater. It can, however, also refer to the act of annoying someone through the commonly used expression “it grates on me.”
