Convict vs. Convince

The other day I got a message from someone who wanted me to get In-N-Out burger to come to Saudi Arabia.

They wrote “if you can convict them” – I couldn’t help but laugh out loud….and take a screenshot 😉

Although we spell them almost the same — they mean very different things.

Convince: (a verb) means “to make someone believe, or feel sure about something, especially by using logic, argument or evidence.”

Convict (also a verb): means “to find guilty.”

You can use evidence to convince the jury/judge to convict someone of a crime.

Hope this helps!
