Grammar Wednesday: Word Mixups – Defiantly v Definitely

These are two words that I do see mixed up on occasion. It might just be typos, but I figured it’d be better to explore than to not. These two have very different meanings.

EXAMPLES

Rusty defiantly stood at the window, waiting for the threatening kitten she saw in the glass to arrive again.

Rusty definitely was high on cat nip.
