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

Persecute or Prosecute?

Your choice!


Exemple : ‘’Some people persecute others for being gay.’’

"Persecute" and "prosecute" are written very similarly and thus are prone to be mixed up. "Persecute" means to treat someone unfairly.


Exemple : ‘’The victim has declared that she will not prosecute.’’

"Prosecute" is used in a legal context and means "to press charges."
