Overdo vs Overdue - English Grammar - Teaching Tips
These two terms are often confused due to their similar pronunciation. Let's take a closer look. The word "overdo" is used when speaking about doing something to an excessive degree. For example: Don't overdo the salt in this recipe or it will taste bad. ?Overdue? spelled with 'ue' at the end, however, refers to something that is past a due date or past a scheduled time. For example: I need to pay all my overdue bills to avoid a late fee. So think about whether you are referring to something that is done in excess or a delay beyond an appointed time. That's it for today. See you next time!
