Word Usage: Principal and Principle
Dear Grammarly Community,
I'm not sure if many of you get tripped up by principal and principle, but I always do. Mostly because they're pronounced the same, obviously.
I looked it up on the dictionary:
Principal: first or highest in rank, importance, value, etc.; chief; foremost.
Principle: an accepted or professed rule of action or conduct
So am I right to say that for all sentences that is position-related, I'd use principal, and all others like a person's values etc. I'd use principle?
Thanks in advance!
