Colonel vs Kernel
Colonel vs Kernel. The Colonel never ate popcorn because the kernels would stick between his teeth. Don’t get stuck with writing errors, use ErrNET!
Colonel is an officer in the U.S. Army, Air Force, or Marine Corps ranking between lieutenant colonel and brigadier general: corresponding to a captain in the U.S. Navy; a commissioned officer of similar rank in the armed forces of some other nations.
Kernel is the softer, usually edible part contained in the shell of a nut or the stone of a fruit; the central or most important part of something; the most basic level or core of an operating system of a computer, responsible for resource allocation, file management, and security.
Colonel and kernel are often misused in writing because of their identical pronunciations and the unusual spelling of “colonel”. Your writing will rank higher than a colonel if you use ErrNET copyediting technology!
