Here are a few more of my Tricksters — aka homophones — those pesky words that sound alike (or nearly so) but are spelled differently and mean something different. These are the toughest words in English, and they trip up almost everyone at one time or another. Writers need to be fully aware of the possibilities for many words they write, right (rite)?
Are there other homophones that you struggle with? Be sure to let me know so I can include them in a future Tuesday’s Tricksters post. I put these out in alphabetical order, so you might have to wait a bit to see yours, but do let me know!
