homophones These are words that sound the same, but mean different things (misusing them can be very funny).

I will start it off with the two words threw and through and thru


Have fun! hello2

I just keep hopping from place to place.
I never stay too long.
I just keep moving singing a song.
So you better stop me if you want to chat.
Or you will never know where I am at.

Nope. They are words that sound the same. If you picked here and hear then that works.

Here is another example that some might cry foul at, but it is totally valid.

the words Fair Fare Fair

Fair like the noun county fair, fare like the fee paid to ride a bus, then the adjective fair as in fair deal

Well sea-see
hear-here
there- their- and they're (maybe not that much different but still used differently)
right-write
I-eye

Words that sound the same but different meanings yes?

Night knight?

Yes now you have it. It is not difficult and can be fun. My motive is to use more obscure words.

Like tare and tear

If you stacked a bunch of sugar cubes and then cried on them, wound that be a tear tier?

You can't get there from here, because when you get there you're still here and here is now there.

Ah, my dear Frog, I believe you will be strolling down the aisle with my sister, Mary as the two of you marry and make merry on the friendly isle of Maui!

By George, I think I've got it......

They paid the fare to go to the fair.

He had no peer on the pier.

She made a pet of the dear deer.

"I have no fur," said the bare bear.

What is the difference between writing beautiful soul-searching verse about my love, and rhyming about cutting wool off sheep?

One is sheer poetry and the other shear poetry.

You can't get there from here, because when you get there you're still here and here is now there.

That made me laugh out loud. I think it was the icon_biggrin at the end of the sentence that did it LOL.

They can also be spelled the same and be homonyms. Like row (a boat) and row (of chairs), but row and roe are also homonyms spelled differently. I like bight and bite, and nit and knit, and carp (fish) and carp (complain).



All I'm saying is you've never seen me crying and eating tacos at the same time.
