Hi Snarky. I saw this in a brochure and I think there's a mistake in the caption. Can you please explain complement vs. compliment? I can never remember which is which. Thank you!
Lots of people confuse these homophones, which are words that sound the same but are spelled differently and have different meanings.
- complement (v.) - to make complete; to fill out; to show off. That color complements your complexion nicely. The team's new wide receiver really complements the quarterback's throwing game.
- compliment (v.) - to make an admiring remark. She complimented his wavy hair.
- Visualize the first five letters of complement and its meaning. To complement makes something complete.
- Remember, to compliment puts someone in the limelight.
- With effective space planning, your Dallas home will not only create a tasteful environment but one that complements your lifestyle.
