Here’s one I come across all the time…mixing up quite and quiet. They both sound the same, but have completely different meanings.
The difference is simple…
Quiet means silent, soundless, not noisy etc.
For example: Things are very quiet here at the moment
Quite is an adverb used to describe something somewhat remarkable or noteworthy
For example: Mike was quite tall OR I have quite a heavy workload
That’s it…quite easy to understand the difference after all, isn’t it? Now, quiet down and get back to work.
