Stuart's Daily Word Spot: Stationary or stationery?

Stationary or stationery?

This is a very old dilemma with a particularly simple solution.

Since 'stationery' is the stuff you use for writing etc, you only need remember that 'stationery' with an 'e' includes envelopes.

On the other hand, 'stationary' means to remain still so just remember that if you halt, you'll be 'stationary.'

There, that was easy, wasn't it?
