Guest:As a refresher to many, what is the difference in usage between sale and sell? I have become accustomed to using substitute words such as move, or distribute, because they are much easier to remember when it comes to grammer.

"Sale" is a NOUN meaning "the act of selling
"Sell" is a VERB meaning to sell, or exchange something for money or other goods.
Anonymous:"Sell" can also be a noun:
1. a deliberate deception: hoax
2. the act or an instance of selling
and a couple of more obscure ones. Check out Webster
Anonymous:Isn't the "act of" selling a verb? Which would make sale incorrect in that example? Isn't "sale" a noun as in "item on sale" whereas "sell" is "I will sell you that item?"
An action word is a verb which would the act of doing anything the verb, right? :-)
