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

Seize or Cease ?

Your choice!


Exemple : ‘’The police will seize any illegal drugs found on the premises.’’

The words "seize" and "cease" are pronounced very similarly and this can lead to confusion regarding which word to use. "Seize" is a verb and is used to denote the act of taking something. This most commonly relates to the police taking illegal goods with force.


Exemple : ‘’The website will cease to exist in two weeks time.’’

The word "cease" is a verb meaning "to stop something." It is a more formal way of expressing this idea than simply using the verb "stop."
