Lent or Leant?
Exemple : ‘’I have given up chocolate for Lent.’’
“Lent” and “leant” are homonyms and this can cause confusion. “Lent” is the time of the year in the Christian religion which takes place in the 40 days leading up to Easter.
Exemple : ‘’I leant on the table and it tipped over. ’’
“Leant” is the past tense of the verb “to lend” meaning to give something to someone for a restricted amount of time with the belief that it will then be returned.
