Common Errors in English Usage: Fiance (n), Fiancee (n)

Here is a worksheet on sorting out the use of the nouns fiance and fiancee. It’s quite simple: they are, respectively, a male and female noun.

As with all of the documents under this title, Paul Brians’ book Common Errors in English Usage, which he has generously made available on the Washington State University website. This is a full-page worksheet with a simple one-sentence reading and ten modified cloze exercise. You may do what you wish with this essentially open-source, Microsoft Word document.

If you find typos in this document, I would appreciate a notification. And, as always, if you find this material useful in your practice, I would be grateful to hear what you think of it. I seek your peer review.
