Sexy Birthday Homonyms: to, too, & two

Pardon me, for this blog post contains sexually explicit examples or content. If you are under the age of 18 or just uncomfortable with sexually explicit material, you may want to check out one of these sites about grammar and writing instead.

We’re finishing off the second week of the Sexy Grammarian’s Birthday with a classic set of easily confused homonyms. My sexy example sentences guarantee you will never use the wrong word again!

The preposition to indicates motion or direction toward a point, as in:

His hand moved down to muscular thighs.

The adverb too means furthermore or in addition, as in:

She indulged the piggy masochist with too many lashes.

The noun two is the written symbol for the cardinal number 2, as in:

Two lips grazed my rosebud.

What is a homonym? Generally speaking, homonyms are any words that sound the same but have different meanings. Read more about homonyms, homophones, and homographs on Wikipedia, and check out this exhaustive homonym list.
