#SOS Monday – By, Bye, Buy?!

Today we are looking at a strange English phenomenon – HOMOPHONES!

A homophone is a word that is pronounced the same as another word but differs in meaning. It may also differ in spelling. The two words may be spelled the same, as in rose (flower) and rose (the past tense of rise), or differently, as in by, buy and bye!

Look at these examples below.

Can you think of any more homophones?
