Default Difference between "apart" and "a part"

This may annoy a few people, but it is a pet peeve of mine and so I could not refrain from bringing this up.


I just want to point out that there is a difference between saying "apart" and "a part".

"apart" (To be away) means separate i.e. I took my watch apart, or Our birthdays are three days apart, etc.


"a part" (To be together) means 'part of' i.e. France is a part of Europe.


So saying something like:

"...the recent introduction of burqa's is NOT apart of any of the culture's present in Macedonia..."

actually has an opposite meaning to what was intended.

Now, that quote may have been a simple typo, but I see this mistake all too often that I thought it worth mentioning here and as I said, it is a pet peeve of mine.

My sincerest apologies for the disruption.
