  1. Errors of homonyms like this can happen to the best of us.

    Sometimes, it is not really a case of not knowing the difference between similarly sounding words, but rather not paying attention, or a lapse in concentration. Or, some medical condition.

    Just as punctiliousness is necessary in good grammar usage, so it is in avoiding errors of homonyms. like the above..

    Thank you!
