Everywhere a sign and a line: Cue vs. queue

Seeing this People-431943_1920error in a few writers’ manuscripts indicates the need for an entry about these two similar-sounding words.

Cue can be either a noun or a verb for a signal to do something: The teacher’s nod was Annie’s cue to begin her presentation.

Queue can be either a noun or a verb for lining up: The students got into a queue for lunch.

The line of writers mixing up these two words now should be a lot shorter!

Need an editor? Having your book, business document or academic paper proofread or edited before submitting it can prove invaluable. In an economic climate where you face heavy competition, your writing needs a second eye to give you the edge. Whether you come from a big city like Scranton, Pennsylvania, or a small town like Funk, Ohio, I can provide that second eye.
