Flier vs. Flyer
Have you ever been confused with the difference between FLIER and FLYER? Let’s look at the definitions first—and then how to remember the difference!
FLIER means: something that flies through the air; or a person who flies something, such as an airplane
FLYER means: an informational paper to be put into circulation
How do we distinguish between the two? How can we remember the difference between the two? What can prompt our memory to get it right every time? Word tricks have always helped me. Check out the word tricks that follow:
A FLIER flies through the sky, so he had better have EYES.
Always use “i” to spell FLIER!
The question “WHY?” may be answered by an informational FLYER.
Always use “y” to spell FLYER!
Maybe not the most catchy, but I had to come up with something to keep them straight! Hope it helps you!
