Answer: wonder vs. wander

Today we’re looking at a pair of words that are easily confused – after all, there’s only one letter different between them.  [user profile] tigerlilly asked us “When do you use ‘wonder’ vs ‘wander,’ like in ‘let the mind wander?’ What is a good way to remember, esp. for non-native English speakers?” Let’s jump right in, with some help from the characters of Doctor Strange.

I wonder as I wander... or is it the other way around?
