- loose (adj.) [pronounced loos] - Unfastened; not tight (see complete list of definitions)
- lose (v.) [pronounced looz] - To miss from one's possession (see complete list of definitions)

- "If your loops are loose, you can lose a shoe."
- Because the two words are pronounced differently, it can help to identify rhyming words. Try "The goose is loose" or "The moose is loose."
