What is the Difference Between Then and Than?

by admin on July 8, 2008

Two words that I, myself misused all the time without truely understanding their difference. Than is used only when comparing objects. I am taller than you. You make more money than me. Think of greater than and less than in math.

Then refers to time in a sequence of events or in reference to the past. I was much thinner back then. First I went to the supermarket, then I saw a movie.

There is nothing more to it.
