Grammar in Action – The Principal's Principal Principle

Principle and principal are homophones that often cause confusion for writers and transcriptionists. I find myself sometimes having to stop to think about which of these to use, even though I know the rules.

Principle is a noun that refers to a law, attitude, code or belief.

Principal can also be a noun, as in when referring to the principal of a school. However, it's often an adjective meaning main , foremost or most important.

And we decided together, in principle, which steps to take next.

The principal focus of the team was to decide which steps to take next.
