(BTW, note the spelling. "Lose" is one of the most frequently
misspelled words in English - so much so that I briefly wondered if
other English-speaking countries spelled it differently.)


Homophones are difficult to deal with for native speakers who learn
language by ear; more important common errors are
who's vs whose
it's vs its
their vs there (vs. they're in Northern England)

So lose vs. on the loose (escaped) just lines up with the others.
