Native English speakers, could you please help me with these issues?

1. Which is correct:

a) "TO those of you who don't know, there is a Donought Day."

b) "FOR those of you who don't know, there is a Donought Day."

2. And is this sentence correct:

"I like donoughts, but not those frosted with sprinkles."

  • Best Answer

    Donuts, or doughnuts are both acceptable American English spelling. You have an error in spelling. "To" means "directed at", and "for" indicating "for the purpose or information". "To" is more harsh and less courteous. "For" is more commonly used.

    #2 is OK, but this is better:  I like doughnuts except the ones with sprinkles and frosting.   I like doughnuts other than those with sprinkles and frosting.

      You use your format when pointing out particular doughnuts in front of you.

  • First of all, it's "donuts" or "doughnuts", not "dounoughts". Secondly, both are correct, and the final sentence is also correct.
