Today, I’m giving you another set of confused word.
Elicit [ih-lis-it] (verb):
to draw or bring out forth; evoke
Our words and actions should elicit positive changes in our society.
Illicit [ih-lis-it] (adj.):
not legally permitted or authorized. (think illegal)
I refused in participate in any illicit activity.

I’m so glad to hear you are not doing anything illicit… and look, you did elicit a response from me.
Always get those two mixed up!
Another good opposing pair!
