Chute vs Shoot. If you shoot him now, he will fall back in to the garbage chute. Shoot down your writing errors with ErrNET copyediting technology!
Chute is an inclined channel, as a trough, tube, or shaft, for conveying water, grain, garbage, coal, etc., to a lower level.
Shoot as a verb is to hit, wound, damage, kill, or destroy with a bullet, missile, etc. from the discharge of a weapon.
Shoot as a noun is a young branch or sucker springing from the main stock of a tree or other plant.
Shoot as an exclamation is used as a euphemism for ‘shit’
Chute and shoot are pronounced the same but have different meanings and spellings. These two words get easily confused and misused in English writing. Shoot, don’t let your writing go down the garbage chute, just use ErrNET proofreading technology and all will be just fine!
