Grammar 101: Regime vs. Regimen

In the latest instalment of his tongue-in-cheek exploration of grammatical errors, Adrian Fernand takes a harsh but fair look at why certain people confuse the word ‘regime’ and ‘regimen’ in his excellent Grammar 101 series.

It’s enough to make you want to instigate a dictatorship, enforce a law banning them from using ‘regime’ incorrectly and then buy a heck of a lot of shoes. Admittedly, totalitarianism does have its perks. In today’s Grammar 101, we clear up the difference between weight-loss and loss of rights in a handy and easy-to-remember diagram.
