    Homonyms, Homophones, Homographs

    By Mark Roth on July 5, 2010 at 8:52 am

    Do you have homonyms, homophones, and homographs figured out?

    I didn’t…until I landed on this information: Homonyms, Homophones, Homographs. Below is my version of the info on that page.


    This is the umbrella which shades homophones and homographs, the clown tottering around on the stilts called homophones and homographs, the…well, never mind.


    Homophones are words that sound alike, but have different meanings and spellings. Examples: do, due, dew, doo and I’ll, aisle, isle and read, reed

    When I learned them (and taught them) we called ’em homonyms! Since those good ole days, apparently “they” have come up with another term….


    Homographs are words that are spelled the same, but have different meanings and may have different pronunciations. Examples: wind, wind and read, read and fix

    Yeah, fix. I thought that one up all by myself. 😯
