Grammar Lesson Monday: Aisle and Isle

Welcome to Grammar Lesson Monday!
This continuous series will address many common grammar mistakes made in the media and that I've seen more than once.  I strive to make the world a better place with good grammar.

Today, we will learn about aisle and isle.
Oh, the homonyms.

Aisle refers to a row that you can walk through.
The bride sauntered down the aisle between the pews.

Isle refers to an island (it's like a shorter version of island).
Irishmen like to call Ireland "the emerald isle."

That's it for today.  Celebrate good grammar!
