Commonly Confused Words: Flaunt vs. Flout


Both of these words are not-so-nice verbs that you probably wouldn't want to be accused of doing.

But how do you remember which is which? Just remember my advice:

If you want to flaunt your stellar SAT/ACT score, don't flout test day rules and risk having your test score rescinded for misconduct!

This happened to a girl that I know. And believe me, it's not worth the pain. Not to mention the embarrassment of having to explain what happened to everyone you know.

So remember, if you want to flaunt your score, follow the rules, don't flout them. Have a good weekend!
