Heteronymsare words that are spelled the same way but have different pronunciations and meanings. Since they look the same, it is particularly tricky to know how to pronounce them because you need to be aware of their context. For example, the heteronym
closehas two different meanings and pronunciations in the following sentences: “We live close” and “Close the door.” In this English lesson, I will teach you many other heteronyms you need to know, like
bow, and more. There are no particular rules to determine their pronunciation, and they vary in function, some being verbs, nouns, and adjectives. So watch this lesson to learn some useful English heteronyms, and do the quiz to test your memory.
Thank you Ronnie
I got 6/10, I’m sorry, i wrong something. I’ll try better next lesson, thank Ronnie
8/10 Well, it is very good to have a B1 plus English level (according to TOEIC exam)
I say homographs instead of heteronyms, but both are the same.
Thank you so much Ronnie, both for sharing your knowledge with us and for your sense of humour!
(Btw, how many takes to record this video???)

That was a good presentation. Thank you Ronnie.

Hi Ronnie, I has a question how pronounce “dessert’ with chocolate and “desert” with sand and camels ? I confuse the two pronunciations because in French the s and ss are opposed in English. Thank you for your funny courses to speed for me sometime (especially the jokes). See you soon :-))

I think the heteronyms are little bit hard to learn for me. I need to practice more for learn differences between these words.
Thank you, Ronnie….!!
Thanks. The oposite of “well done”: go Ronnie, don’t be soy.
Thank you . But what does arid land mean !?
arid = very dry
Arid land or an arid climate is very dry because it has very little rain.
Amazing and the best :*
I’m sorry but why the answer to sentence 10 is ‘nose’.
because the pronunciation of the word NOSE is [nəʊz]
The pronunciation of the word BOW is [bəʊ] and BOWS is [bəʊz].

There are also two other common “bow”s. The first, pronounce the same as the verb (“baw”) means the frot part of a ship or boat (opposite of “prow”). The second, pronounced like the decoration (“bo”), is a weapon used by archers (bow and arrow). English is indeed both amazing and confusing :)
I got 5/10.I’m sorry.I will try again.
9/10! Good! I lost No.9 question! Pls tell me, I was confused by this.
Then what of base, bass(instrument) Do they have the same pronunciation
