Today, I bring you another set of doppelgangers.
Desperate Vs. Disparate
Desperate [des-per-it, -prit] (adj.):
1. Having an urgent need, desire.
2. Reckless, dangerous because of despair.

Disparate [dis-per-it, dih-spar-](adj.):
Distinct, dissimilar, essentially different.
Their personalities were so disparate, that everyone understood their attraction but nobody could comprehend how they managed to live under one roof.

Lookalikes — Desperate Vs. Disparate
Great post, got to remember to edit thoroughly as sometimes I type weirdly so Word likes to assume my words mean one thing when I meant something completely different (such as desperate becoming disparate) 😀
Taking the SAT soon, and these are fun to study 😉 Good to stock up on tricky vocab words!
Words, words, words! Don’t we just love them! I want to thank you for liking my post about hands on papermudandme.wordpress.com. I’ve been saying so much about books lately that I thought I’d better talk about something else for a change. – Thanks again and Aloha – pjs.
Good idea! Diversification is good 🙂 Thank you for commenting.
I think bloggers are disparate. I love new words. I am going to tell my family I want my disparate papers.
Let more of these come, young lady! Nice to see some English lessons on my WordPress Reader!
Thank you! I’ll do my best 🙂
Excellent, I love the way you share these different words, thank you!
My pleasure, Barbara. I’m glad you enjoy them 🙂
This is cool.
