Teaching Notes.

1 and 4. These near-homophones can be tricky. The students should see that the suffix -er in loser means “one that does,” while the -er in looser means “more.”

3. It is important that the students see that the diacritic <gh> is not part of the spelling of \begin{align*}[\bar{\mathrm{u}}]\end{align*}. It is part of the context in which this <ou> spelling occurs.
