THE HOMOS ... NYMS AND PHONES
I am sure the title of this article grabbed your attention. First, let me explain the reasoning behind the name of the title. It has been said that the English language is one of the most difficult languages to learn to speak. Making it more difficult are the homonyms, homophones and homographs. They all begin with the prefix homo.
Homonyms are words that have the same spelling and pronunciation but different meanings.
Homophones are words that have the same pronunciation but different spellings and meanings.
