To/two/too

It’s time to revisit another common grammar mistake that we also covered in our homophones post, as no article on grammar gripes would be complete without it. It’s easy to see why people get this one wrong, but there’s no reason why you should.

The rules:

“To” is used in the infinitive form of a verb – “to talk”.
“To” is also used to mean “towards”.
“Too” means “also” or “as well”.
“Two” refers to the number 2.

How not to do it:

I’m to hot
It’s time two go
I’m going too town
He bought to cakes

How to do it properly:

I’m too hot
It’s time to go
I’m going to town
He bought two cakes
