Description:

Homophones are words that sound exactly the same but the spelling and meaning are different. An example is write and right. They sound exactly the same but their spelling and meaning are very different. There are many homophones in English and learning them will not only help you spelling but also your pronunciation. A word like 'fort' (a castle or military building) seems a lot easier to pronounce than 'fought' (past form of fight) but the pronunciation is exactly the same. Fort & fought and right & write are homophones. See how many more you recognise!

It can also be very useful for our students to let them discriminate words when reading song lyrics.

Thanks Leon - very good point. I am indeed working in an RP bubble! Are any of my homophone examples specifically British English or RP? I'm not sure - please comment.

I think that it's interesting to compare accents by looking through a list of homophones to find those which are homophones for one speaker but not another speaker. Eg: 'My aunt was bitten by an ant' or 'This sordid affair must be sorted out!' - These are homophones in parts of the USA but not for me in Canterbury. Here's a list to check : http://www.englisSee more
