"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.

Well, March has ended and still we are working to get the homonym and homophone database converted for mobile app. Design requirements and layout are finalized; the coding and graphics are now under way.
Rest assured, however, that all ebooks for this site are still available for the foreseeable future. Only when the app is up at Google Play and The App Store will those products be gradually discontinued.
Sherry and I are working as quickly as we can to get the app done. And we apologize for the delay to those patiently waiting.
The app, Sound Words, has been finalized and tested satisfactorily with a dummy database. Unexpected formatting issues, however, with my original database will require more time to modify before it can be used.
Realistically, those mods should be finished by mid-August or earlier. Thereafter, it will be quick to upload to Google Play and The App Store.
Data base modifications have been successfully completed. The app is now being assembled and tested for later upload, hopefully this month. Not long now....
Unforunately, delay has occurred because of our need to attend a family member who has been hospitalized during this month; recovery is now in progress, but daily
attendance at hospital is necessary. Working as quickly as we can to complete the launch of Sound Words.
Here's the novel app about challenging words used in English literary fiction:
...for all students and readers of English literary fiction.
Get it at Google Play now! And, also now at The App Store.
