Tag Archives: heterographs

To, too and two! Do you know which one is which?

So these are called heterographs. That means they have a different spelling and meaning but the same pronunciation.

  • To is used with verbs to make the infinitive form. To walk, to run, to sleep. It is also a synonym of towards. I’m walking to (towards) the store.
  • Too is a synonym of “also” or “as well”. I like strawberry ice cream too (also) (as well)! Too is less formal than the other two.
  • Two is the number 2. I want two ice cream cones. I want 2 pieces/slices of pizza.
