Brittney brings us this. I about fall over to see them using the wrong word–“Silence can say more then a thousand words.”
I am no grammar genius and lord knows I spell like a drunken monkey, but I’m still going to tackle “than” and “then” for you.
“Than” is used in comparisons. I am more charming than Sarcastro. Ice cream is better than getting punched.
“Then” is used to delineate time. It can be used to mean “what comes next.” I am going to insult Sarcastro and then I’m going to eat some ice cream. Or it can be used to mean “in the past.” Back then, a girl wouldn’t dare insult a man like Sarcastro or she might get punched.
I hope this has been helpful.
