    Cool Wrong Way Around

    Meaning for "Wrong way around." Does it mean a sheer wrong way?

    Thank You.

    Yes, thank you. Found at the following sentence:

    "The musketeer loading the musket is ostensibly doing it in the wrong way around."

    Looks like a typo:

    The musketeer loading the musket is ostensibly doing it in the wrong way round

    Yes, thank you, but then, what is meaning "wrong way round" please?

    Re: Wrong Way Around

    If you put on a garment with the front facing backwards, it is the wrong way round.

    I presume the man loading the musket is putting the shot into the barrel before he puts in the gunpowder and the wad, which means the gun will not shoot correctly = he is loading his musket the wrong way round.

    It simply means he is doing it the wrong way, for example first powder, then bullet...(I have no idea of how to load a musket. )

    (O sea, lo hace mal, empieza con lo que debe terminar o algo así.)

    Post Re: Wrong Way Around

    I always thought 'round' and 'around' were interchangeable.

    "He went for a quick spin round/around the block."

    "She went round/around the mayor's villa to perform a private dance, as promised."

    Do both apply in the sentences above?
