I stumbled upon the word “buisness” while reading through an article in a newspaper and it looked so different to me because the spelling didn’t seem right.
Buisness and Business are two words that are confused because of their similarity in spelling and pronunciation, of which one is correct and the other a misspelling of the ideal word.
In this article, I will be explaining the difference between these two words, the reason behind the confusion, and a way of identifying the correct word.
This word is a misspelling of the ideal word “Business”. It is formed when the letters “i” and “s” are misplaced, thus making the word incorrect.
This error is as a result of the mispronunciation of the ideal word.
What comes to your mind when you hear this word? A commercial activity?, an Investment? A company? Economic activity? etc. All these words above all describe a business in one way or the other.
Business has several meanings, here are some of the meanings:
This same issue appears in the context of “Recieve and Receive” where the placement of the “i” and “e” determines the correctness of the word.
One of the easy ways to identify the correct word in “Buisness or Business” is from the root word “Busy” and adding “ness” to it to produce the ideal word.
