Overdo vs Overdue - English Grammar - Teaching Tips
This video covers the difference between the usage of overdo and overdue. These two terms are often confused due to their similar pronunciation. The word overdo is used when speaking about doing something to an excessive degree. We can therefore say: Don't overdo the salt in this recipe or it will taste bad. We could also say Don't use too much salt or it will taste bad. Overdue spelled with ‘ue’ at the end, however, refers to something that is past a due date or past a scheduled time. For example: I have a few overdue bills I quickly need to pay. As you can see, the difference between the two words is very easy to spot.
