Homophones

Not the latest mobile or cell phone to have at the next Pride Event. Rather homophones are English words with a similar sound, yet different meanings.

For me the classic example is two, too, and to. You may think this is too much time and effort for you to think about correct usage of the English language. Too bad if you do not agree to. There is one mistake not two in this paragraph. Can you see it?

I am notorious for noticing these things after publishing, despite proof reading several times. Seems finally seeing the blog in print focuses the mind more. Whilst I can alter, the initial email sent to those following gives the game away. There is nowhere to hide!

So if you do see mistakes feel free to comment. I would rather correct the blog, and learn a thing or two.

I still have my Aunt’s verbal barrage in the car, on using the words less and fewer, around Christmas time.

The stuff of nightmares.
