Cite vs Site | Ask Linda! | English Grammar

In this video Linda breaks down the difference between “cite” and “site”.

Due to their similar pronunciation, these two words are often confused. Let’s take a closer look.

The word “cite” is a verb and means to mention or to make reference to, for example:

In an academic paper, students should always cite the opinions of several experts.

“Site”, on the other hand, is a noun and describes a place or location. An example sentence would be:

So remember, “cite” is a verb and makes reference to something or someone and “site” is a location.

That’s it for today. See you next time!
