The difference between homophones and homonyms
Homophones are words that sound the same but have different meanings. Homonyms are words that sound the same and have the same meaning. For example, bark (the sound a dog makes) and bark (the protective layer of a tree) are homonyms. But Chen and Ken, heel and heel, or flew and flu are homophones – even though flu is sometimes spelled with a “y”.
Here are some more examples of homonyms:
– brake/break: When you press the brake, you stop your car. If you drop an egg, it will break.
– saw/seen: I sawed the board in half. Have you seen my glasses?
-flower/flour: The flower is very pretty. Flour is used to make bread.
– pair/pear: I need a pair of socks. A pear is a type of fruit.
