Grammar Rules: cite/sight/site

Cite vs sight vs site: another easy one! (For most. Slipping up happens to the best of us, though. :-))

"to quote," "to mention."

Cite it correctly.
She remembered to cite several other examples.

Verb: "to look at," noun: "something seen."

He sighted the cow in the neighbor's field.
The sight was something to behold!
It was an ugly sight.

Most often a noun meaning "location"

It sits on the site of an old battlefield.
The site of the WTC Towers.
Her internet site is hideous!

Authors/writers: Make sure you're on my list of authors!

Another great quote from The 365 Stupidest Things Ever Said calendar: A rockstar at Woodstock II said, "I always think it's cool to commemorate cool things that have happened, because there's a chance that you may, through commemorating them, evoke them again." - the Spin Doctors' Chris Barron.

Gotta love it. :-)
