Aloud vs Allowed - English Grammar - Teaching Tips
In this video we focus on the difference between aloud and allowed. These two words are often confused because of their similar spelling and pronunciation. The word aloud is an adverb and means not silently or spoken out loud. A suitable example sentence would be: The students read aloud essays that they had written last week. Allowed, on the other hand, is the past tense of the verb allow, which means to permit, to let happen and to acknowledge the truth or acceptability of something. A good example would be: My parents allowed me to attend my best friend’s party. This should clear up any confusion you might have about the word pair.
