pompom vs pompon : Common Errors in English

About pompom vs pompon

To most people that fuzzy ball on the top of a knit hat and the implement wielded by a cheerleader are both “pompoms,” but to traditionalists they are “pompons,” spelled the way the French—who gave us the word—spell it. A pompom, say these purists, is only a sort of large gun. Though you’re unlikely to bother many people by falling into the common confusion, you can show off your education by observing the distinction.

pompon Meaning(s)

  • (n) decoration consisting of a ball of tufted wool or silk; usually worn on a hat
  • (n) dusky grey food fish found from Louisiana and Florida southward
