Stationary & Stationery
The other day, I had a very interesting observation. When you google image search stationary or stationery both results are essentially all cards. I was writing something about stationery (the card version) and couldn’t remember quite how to spell it. It’s no secret that I’m not a very good speller, I rely on spell check a lot more than I should. I googled both versions of the word & both had the same results. I knew one of them was wrong so I consulted dictionary.com and figured I would share a mini grammer lesson with you!
Stationary is defined (according to dictionary.com) as “standing still; not moving.”
The puppy was stationary when he was told to sit down.
Stationery on the hand, is defined as “writing paper; writing materials, as pens, pencils, paper and envelopes.”
