In this video Linda breaks down the difference between “bazaar” and “bizarre”.
Due to their similar pronunciation, these two words are easily confused in English.
Let’s take a closer look:
The word “bazaar” refers to a market, usually found in the Middle East.
The Grand Bazaar in Istanbul is one of the largest and oldest covered markets in the world.
“Bizarre”, on the other hand, is and adjective and a synonym for “strange”.
Let’s use it in a sentence:
Everyone stared at the student who wore the bizarre outfit to school.
I’m sure you’ll never confuse the two words again.
That’s it for today. See you next time!
