Homophones are words that sound the same but have different meanings.
Homophones have different spellings, even though they sound in the same way.
There are tons of homophones in English. Here are some examples:
|/ðeə/||they’re, their, there|
In spoken language, we can recognise the word we are talking about by the context of the conversation.
