Are you one of those people who gets tripped up by the different spellings of “message”? Or maybe you’re not sure which spelling is correct in which context?
The three different spellings – “messege,” “message,” and “massage” – can be confusing, even for native English speakers.
But don’t worry, we’re here to help. Let’s explain the difference between these three words and give you some tips on when to use each one.
Messege– not a word
Mesage– not a word
Message– a form of communication
Massage– a muscle rub!
Let’s start off by stating that messege is NOT a word. It is simply a misspelling of the word “message” or “massage.”
You may also be confusing the word with “messenger.” This means someone who carries a message or (a more modern-day meaning) the messenger app by Meta!
Mesage is also not a word. It is a typo. Please do not use it!
Now that we’ve got that out of the way let’s move on to discussing the word “message.”
The word “message” can be used as a noun or a verb.
As a noun, it refers to a piece of information that is conveyed from one person to another. For example, you might say, “I left a message for John on his voicemail.”
As a verb, “message” means to send a message or communicate with someone. For example, you might say, “Can you message me the details of the meeting?”
Examples of Sentences with “Message”
Other examples of sentences with the word “message” include:
- I’m sorry, I didn’t get your message.
- Could you please message me the requirements?
- I left a message for John on his voicemail.
- What’s the main message of the book?
- Please be respectful and do not spam the chatroom with messages.
- Send me a message when you’re ready to talk.
The word “massage” means to rub and press someone’s muscles in order to relax them. It can act as a noun; for example, you might say, “I’m going to go get a massage.”
Massage as a verb means the act of massaging someone. You can receive a massage from a professionally trained massage therapist.
So there you have it – the difference between “message,” “message,” “mesage” and “massage.
Just remember that “messege” and “mesage” are not words, and you’ll be good to go!
