Isย it to faze or to phase?

๐Ÿ˜ณ To faze = the verb you’re looking for when someone is rattled.

Often we use it to report that we weren’t flustered.

๐Ÿ‘ I wasn’t fazed.

โœ… And that’s correct.

โŒ Step away from the use of ‘phased’ for this intended meaning.

โŒ ‘I wasn’t phased’ is incorrect.

๐Ÿ˜ณ Faze = (verb) to disconcert/discombobulate

๐Ÿ“ˆ Phase = (verb) to stagger/carry out in gradual stages

โœ… The whole situation fazed me.

โœ… The measures were phased (in).

๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿซ Homophones. Sound the same but spelt/spelled differently.

โ“ What homophones do you find yourself/others tripping over?
