"Well ... what is a homophone anyway?"
Hello ... Roger Burke here.
Thanks for dropping in to find out about our dictionary of homophones and confusing words.
In all probability, homophones confuse us more than other words and that's because a pair (or trio, or however many) of homophones are
Well, that's why they're called homophones, of course:
the same, but spelled differently.
But, another problem is this: there are many words that sound
to each other and often
than anything else.
For example, say these three quickly, aloud to yourself:
"illusive", "allusive" and "elusive".
Despite what some people think, they are not all homophones simply because
one of them is actually pronounced differently.
Similar, yes. But, not the same as the other two ... according to my Webster's dictionary (and others).
Further confusion occurs when we start truncating two words into one. For example, who hasn't been stopped by "its"
"it's"; or, by
"there"? Are you confused about
(and, for good measure,
knows the difference between
"effect"? And, how about
"immanent", "eminent" and "imminent"?
Do they all sound the same? Are they all homophones?
You'll have all those answers, and hundreds more, when you get this Dictionary of Homophones and Words Commonly Confused.

Slow recuperation allows time for reflection about many things, especially life's brevity and one's goals.
In fact, a few months back, and given the technological trends in the last ten years, I decided a major change was needed to make my work and offerings here more accessible.
Well, as a first step, I've decided to convert the main homonym & homophone dictionary into a mobile app for cell phones and tablets. With the help of my partner and wife, Sherry, I'm hoping to have that job done by mid 2019. If I'm lucky enough, I'll then convert all other products here to the same mobile format, thus eventually dispensing with all ebook and printed versions.
I figure that will be easier all round for those interested. And, I'll continue to comment on progress here.
Here's the novel app about challenging words used in English literary fiction:
