54 Clever Illustrations of Words That Sound The Same But Have Different Meanings.

I'm pretty sure you've heard of homophones before. They're those words that are pronounced the same way but have different meanings and spellings, and this is why they confuse a lot of people. But homophones can be fun sometimes and because of them, we have jokes like this: What happens when a frog's car breaks down? It gets toad away. If you think this is funny, you will definitely enjoy the treat we have prepared for you in this article. Bruce Worden is someone who is particularly interested in homophones and decided to make things simple for everyone. He created Homophones Weekly for the sole purpose of cleverly illustrating homophones in such an amusing way that everyone will not only enjoy but also get a perfect grasp of these confusing words.

    1. Reign/rain/rein... including Free rein, which is a way of riding a horse and is used as a metaphor for being able to do whatever you like, but is often misspelt as free reign.
      Great list, you did.

    2. I'm printing these off (at least, the ones I commonly see mixed up by my kiddos) and hanging them in my classroom. I wish there were illustrations to go along with the ones Greg mentioned!

  2. You forgot one of the most important ones: Two/To/Too

  3. Everything was right except for desert ("dare-zert") vs dessert ("dee-zert")

    1. That's a regionalized pronunciation ... most normal people say them almost the same way :-) ... the only usual difference is the amount of pause between the syllables.

      Delete
    2. At the very least the accent is different: DE-sərt, də-SERT ,

      Delete
    3. Where is it pronounced "dare-zert"? Genuinely curious.

      Delete
    4. The chap in the boat is going to desert (də-SERT) the other fellow on the desert (DE-sərt) island.

  4. For minor/miner, you missed mynah. Which makes the included picture of a caged bird even more confusing.

    1. Huh? Miner = someone who mines. Minor = a child and also a musical key.
      I've never heard of "mynah." Sounds like a Bostonian accent, but the word would be spelled the same.

      Delete
    2. A mynah bird is a species of bird...

      Delete

  5. Loose/Lose? Which/Witch? I don’t think so.
