Confusion

Thought, though, through...

These words are commonly confused in the English language – partly because their pronunciation is so similar and yet the rules don’t make much sense. Also, the meanings can be confused. So today I’m going to do my best to simplify it can practice the meaning and pronunciation with you.

Thought

/θɔːt/

The past tense of “think” or the noun

That’s an interesting thought.

Though

You can go. Though you should be careful.

Through

/θruː/

Moving in one side and out the other side (preposition)

Let’s walk through the park.
