Daily : Confusing Words

Does "bored" mean the same as "boring"? What's the difference between "funny" and "fun"? Here are some commonly confused English word pairs.

FIT AND SUIT
FIT refers to size and shape: if your clothes fit you, they are neither too big, nor too small.

Examples:

That jacket fits you perfectly.
I think my car's too big to fit in this space.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

SUIT refers to style, colour, etc.

Examples:

You should wear more blue - it suits you.
Short skirts don't really suit Laura - she hasn't got the legs for them.
Blue and white are colours that suit me very well.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Suit can also be used to say that something is convenient and cause the least difficulty for someone

Example:

Wednesday would suit me very well for a meeting.
