HOMOPHONES: List of homophones in General American English
This directory contains a list of homophones in "General American
English". Homophones are words that "sound the same" but are spelled
differently. For example, "bear" and "bare" are homophones, but "bear"
(noun) and "bear" (verb) are not.
This list is based on the book "Handbook of Homophones" by William
Cameron Townsend, 1975.
