Stationary or Stationery?

Here’s another word pair that is often confusing for people. These words are called homophones–which mean they sound alike (same sound), but have different meanings.
*  stationary (with an a) is a verb which means still, not moving, in one place.
*  stationery (with an e) is a noun that names the paper used for formal written communication–either personal or business.
For a high-tech way to remember which word to use when, remember that you use email to send digital communication and stationery for hand-written or printed formal communication.
That's it!
See you!
