wreak / wreck



The boy wreaked havoc in the basement by wrecking his castle made of blocks. Wreak in this sense of ?to bring about, cause? is sometimes confused with wreck, ? to cause the destruction of,? perhaps because the wreaking of damage may leave a wreck. A storm should therefore only wreak havoc, never wreck it. The past tense and past participle of wreak is wreaked, not wrought, which is an alternative past tense and past participle of work. You may occasionally see the expression work havoc as well. This is an acceptable expression, but if you choose to use the past form wrought havoc, don?t be surprised if someone objects, for many people believe this is an error for wreaked havoc.    1
