What if wii awl used the wrong word too right what wii wanted two say?
The English language is a complicated one. We speak the words and everyone knows -- for the most part -- what we're saying.
But, when we start to put those same words to paper, a mystical thing happens.
Whee sensor ourselves. Witch word due wii put too paper? Sew, threw trial and airer sometimes we make the write choice, sometimes knot.
I want to make a list of homophones -- u no witch wons eye am talking about.
Don't let the big word fool you -- it means: sounds the same, different spelling and meaning. A homonym, on the other hand, is spelled the same with different meanings, sometimes sounding alike, sometimes not. Ex: Sewer: drain Sewer: tailor OR Row: in a boat Row: to plant in.
I offer the following homophones; please add to the list. You might even know another sounding word to add to my list. I bet we can find over a 100 different same sounding words... I've already got the list over 20% of the way there.
two, to, two
dew, due, do
toed, toad, towed
This is a great exercise for every writer. I know I've used the wrong word at times and I have even seen the wrong word in published books which made me stop and think or laugh, depending on the context.
