I recently wrote a scene that took place in a grocery store and I learned the difference between lineup and line up. Do you know the difference?
See, this is the kind of English that makes my head hurt. I’m so thankful that English is my first language and I don’t have to figure out the craziness.
Lineup: Noun: So here I need to think person, place, or thing. Ok. This is like the line up for the opening game or a police line up.
Line up: Verb: Ok. Now I’ll think action. So now I can add: lining up or lines up or lined up. So he lined up in the store…verb. The lineup in the store was long…noun.
Well, that’s it for today. What words drive you crazy? Let me know.
