Many people confuse the words site and sight. As a noun, site means ‘a place where something is constructed or has occurred’ ( the site of the battle; the concrete is mixed on site), while sight chiefly means ‘the faculty or power of seeing’ ( he lost his sight as a baby).


Late Middle English (as a noun): from Anglo-Norman French, or from Latin situs 'local position'. The verb dates from the late 16th century.
