TIPSY TODAY with Rogena.
PHASED or FAZED
Do you know what the above two words mean?
Do you know when to use the word phased?
Or when you should use the word fazed instead?
Both of these words confuse many...
even professional writers...
Yes, even I still look it up to make certain either word is used correctly when editing. There are many words like this and we all can, and do, miss them.
Merriam-Webster definitions for both words are as follows:
::: a part or step in a process; one part in a series of related events or actions; a short period of time during which a person behaves in a particular way or likes a particular thing; the shape of the part of the moon that is visible at different times during a month
::: to adjust so as to be in a synchronized condition; to conduct or carry out by planned phases; to introduce in stages —usually used with in <phase in new models>
::: to cause (someone) to feel afraid or uncertain
::: to disturb the composure of; disconcert, daunt <nothing fazed her>
During this PHASE of Tipsy Today, have YOU been FAZED by any of these tips?
