    Moment and movement - please discuss with your experience.

    I hope mostly on a flash reading, people would have taken it interchangeable between the words, moment and movement and that is happened recently in my entry to TOW on adventure when I talked about each and every movement of a child inside a womb but the responses are mostly based on each and every moment and hence I had this thought.

    What are the other pair of words which can be taken it interchangeable but mostly leads to same situation.

    Members can discuss about these two pair of words or any other pair of words and discuss it with their experience.

    Sometimes typing mistakes occur while using such words. Earlier I had a bad habit of typing 'their' as 'there' or vice versa. However over the period of time, I developed a practice of checking and re-checking typed contents and thus could overcome the bad habit.
