WORD OF THE WEEK

Hung vs. Hanged:


The similarity in these two words is that they're both the past tense of the word "hang."


However, these two words mean completely different things, and most of the time, they are not interchangeable.


Hung is the actual past tense of "hang".

For example: My shirt hung on the clothesline till the wind blew it away.


Hanged is only used for criminal offenses

For example: In medieval times, all criminals were hanged in the town square.


That's all for this week. Remember to use the correct word based on what you're trying to say.


Until next week...


Stay Curious ;)


Love,

Sarah
