Hello everyone! Please help in completing a school project. It is a requirement to submit a handbook type of booklet with atleast 100 example of homonyms. Homonym are words that sound alike or are spelled alike but have different meanings. Examples: hear - here, des'ert- desert- dessert. Any homonym words you could contribute will be a great help in accomplishing the project. thanks!
