Common mistake Do able (Doable)

Common Mistake: Do able (Doable)

One common mistake that people often make is using the incorrect term "do able" instead of the correct adjective "doable". The mistake stems from the incorrect assumption that the word "able" can be separated from the verb "do" with a space.

However, the correct term is actually "doable", which is a single word and is used to describe something that can be done or achieved.

Here's an example of the mistake:

  • Incorrect: The task is do able, we can easily complete it.
  • Correct: The task is doable, we can easily complete it.

The incorrect usage not only violates the rule of combining the verb "do" and the adjective "able" into a single word but also sounds awkward and ungrammatical to native English speakers.

Using "Doable" in a Sentence

To further illustrate the proper usage of "doable", here are a few examples:

  • The project seemed overwhelming at first, but breaking it down into smaller tasks made it more doable.
  • Despite the tight deadline, the team managed to find a doable solution to the problem.
  • With some practice and dedication, becoming fluent in a new language is definitely doable.

By using the correct term "doable", you can ensure that your writing is clear, concise, and grammatically accurate.
