Fair vs Fare!
Fair has quite a few different meanings. It is a noun referring to large public events. It is an adjective/adverb meaning light colored. It also refers to treating people equally without discrimination, and can be used as an adverb meaning ‘to a high degree.’
“It’s not fair to blame me for everything”
“She has a fair chance of winning”
Fare is the money you pay for a journey in a vehicle
“Train fares are increasing every year”
“I don’t have enough money for the taxi fare”
These two terms are often confused by English learners. Do you know the difference?
