Dammed vs Damned. If the dammed up river overflows, the city is damned and will need to be evacuated. Evacuate your writing errors with ErrNET!
Dammed is blocked from flowing (liquids).
Damned is doomed; (in Christian belief) condemned by God to suffer eternal punishment in hell; used for emphasis, especially to express anger or frustration.
Dammed and damned are words that are pronounced the same but have different meanings and spellings. Because of their identical pronunciations, dammed and damned are often confused and misused in English writing. You will be damned to hell if you don’t use ErrNET proofreading technology to check your writing! Just joking, but you should use it if you don’t want to commit this error in your writing!
