What’s the difference between metal, medal, meddle and mettle? Let’s mettle – no, no MEDDLE – with your brain a little.
Metal is a material, such as titanium or gold.
Medal is a type of award.
Meddle means to interfere in someone else’s business.
And mettle refers to one’s personal strength and spirit. Note the underlined T’s in forTiTude to help you remember it’s mettle not meddle. (She meDDles in Duck’s life.)
