Grammer or Grammar?

200 Common Errors Course

Grammar vs. grammer: what’s the difference? “Grammer” doesn’t exist! It’s a very common mistake to misspell “grammar” as G-R-A-M-M-E-R.

There’s NO “e” in the word grammar; the correct spelling is G-R-A-M-M-A-R. But when we speak, we pronounce it like “er” – grammer, not gram-MAR – so that’s why people often misspell it with -er. It’s an understandable error.

I’ll teach you the most common grammer grammar mistakes, vocabulary mistakes, spelling mistakes, pronunciation mistakes, and more – showing you the right way to say things so that you can speak and write more confidently in English.

There are actually lots of words in English that end with -ar or -or in an unstressed syllable, and we pronounce them more like -ER. Let’s practice more of these words.

Today we’re focusing on pronunciation, but if you want to know the definitions of any of the words in the list below, check yourdictionary.com or thefreedictionary.com

English words ending in -AR

  • calendar
  • caterpillar
  • collar
  • dollar
  • liar
  • popular
  • similar
  • solar
  • sugar
  • vinegar

Good job!

Note that there are some words that end in -ar where we do pronounce it “ARE” – like guitar, radar, avatar. But the other ones we just practiced all sound like -er even though they’re spelled with -ar at the end.

English words ending in -OR

Now let’s practice some that are spelled with -or… but again, pronounced like “er.”

  • actor
  • administrator
  • calculator
  • doctor
  • editor
  • governor
  • professor
  • refrigerator
  • sailor
  • survivor
  • ventilator
  • visitor

There’s no need to debate between grammar or grammer – the correct way is ALWAYS “grammar.”
