Here are a couple of commonly confused words: commiserate and commensurate. Do you get these mixed up?

“Petra is in the corner commiserating with Savannah over the loss of her job.”

“The Priest is here to commiserate with the family in their time of sorrow.”

“Men often commiserate with their friends after divorcing their wives.”

“My friend is seeking a position commensurate with her university degree.”

“Termination of employment is not a punishment commensurate with being late to work one time.”
