These two words are often confused with one another. Recently, they have been misused often in my reading. So, it became the Tuesday Tip for today.

Compliment: an admiring or flattering remark, praise

Example: Do you blush when you are given a compliment?

Complement: goes well with others, completes

Example: The chocolate sauce complements the cheesecake.

A quick tip to determine if you should use an “i” or an “e”:  I like to give compliments.
