Long, deep, wide and high


 

I want to highlight a common spelling problem today.

Take a look at how the adjectives below change when they become nouns. Pay special attention to the last 2 letters of the noun forms.

long => lengTH

deep => depTH

wide => widTH

high => heigHT

You’ll notice that the noun of high ends with an HT, not TH like the others.
