Words beginning with lo...

Loose and lose are often misspelled words. Practise spelling KS3 words beginning at lo to improve your writing skills.

"They put me on television. And the whole thing broke loose. It was wild, I tall ya for sure." - Elvis Presley.

Teachers often discourage their students from using the word "thing" because it is unspecific. Speaking and writing are more effective when words are chosen with precision. Yet sometimes the non-specific can be poetic. When Presley says, "the whole thing broke loose", his audience must use their imaginations to have an idea what he might mean. What exactly "broke loose"? Does he mean his own music, the music studio, the music industry, tradition, America, the whole world? "Thing" is, in fact, a very useful word, so you will not be surprised to know that it has existed in English for a long time, and was being used well over a thousand years ago.
