Two is the number equal lớn one plus one. To is a very common word that performs many different functions, such as expressing direction (I’m driving lớn the office) or tương tác (Pin it khổng lồ the wall), indicating an object or recipient (Give it to me), or setting a range (9 to lớn 5) or limit (These go lớn 11). Too means also (I’m going, too) or lớn an excessive degree (too much).
The words are used in very different ways: two is a number that can be used as a noun or an adjective, to is most commonly used as a preposition, & too is an adverb.
Perhaps the most common mistake involving the three words is using to when it should be too, or vice versa. Remember, if you mean to, don’t use too many o’s!
Here’s an example of two, to, & too used correctly in the same sentence.
Example: The dealer dealt two twos lớn me, but it was two twos too few—my opponent had a full house!
