Then vs Than | Ask Linda! | English Grammar
This mistake is one of the most common ones ? even for native English speakers. Let?s take a look at this sentence: My car is better then yours. Does this look right to you? Nope, sorry. It should be 'than'. 'Than' is a conjunction used to compare things, whereas 'then' is an adverb used to situate actions in time, such as here: I woke up, and then I took a shower. The next time you're using 'then/than' in a sentence, ask yourself whether it is used to sequence actions or to compare things and you'll definitely get it right. That's it for today! See you next time!
