Now that Halloween approaches let’s talk about a common mistake related to this festivity: the confusion between ‘died-dead-death’.
DIE is the verb, as in: Nobody wants to die.
DIED is the past tense of the verb, which is regular, as in: Tom died in 1990.
DEAD is the adjective that describes the state of a person or animal, as in: The hamster doesn’t move. I’m afraid it is dead.
DEATH is the noun, as in: He is not afraid of death.
