Homophonesare words that have the same pronunciation but completely different meanings. For example,
beesound exactly the same, but the first is a verb, and the second is the name of an insect. Because the pronunciation is identical, we rely on context and spelling to understand the word. The best way to remember homophones is to practice them. You’ve come to the right place! In this lesson, I will teach you 17 pairs of homophones. Each pair will have a verb, like
hire. And for each verb, there will be a homophone that means something completely different. Together, we will try to make funny word games, which we call “puns” or “dad jokes”. Watch the video and then share your best puns and dad jokes in the comments!
thank you Ronnie and keep smiling and laughing !
Homophones in French : vert=green, verre=glass, vers=towards, vair=variety of fur, ver=worm and verse :))
Great! Thank you, Ronnie!
Here is my homework. Do everybody hear?:)

I remember Sheldon Cooper (in The Big Bang Theory) who, to comfort someone, said “There, there, there…”; but maybe he was actually saying “They’re, their, there…”
(oh my God, it’s so bad…)

There is a third homophone to so – sew. It´s sow: to put seeds in or on the ground so that plants will grow
Good point! Sow /səʊ/ also has a heteronym, sow /saʊ/ (rhymes with “cow” and “how”), that means “female pig”.
Thanks you for your teaching
Why is 6 afraid of 7?
Because 7 ate 9.
