Homophones

Homophones!

When you absolutely want to sound like you know what you’re talking about


What is a homophone

What is a Homophone?

  • A homophone is two or more words that sound alike but mean different things.

  • We will be discussing some commonly misused homophones, as well as other words that get mixed up easily.


Their there they re

Their/there/they’re

  • These are very commonly confused.

  • “Their” is the plural possessive form of “they,” which means that you use it when you are talking about more than one person who owns something.

  • Example: My mom and dad washed their car.


Their there they re1

THEIR/there/they’re

  • “There” refers to a location, usually a distance away from the speaker. It can also refer to something in the past like “There were only three papers left for Mrs. Wyatt to grade before she could enjoy her weekend.”

Example: Dale left his book over there on the chair.


Their there they re2

Their/there/they’re

  • They’re is the contraction of “they are,” which is telling you something that more than one person is doing.

Example: They’re watching the latest episode of Teen Mom.


Your you re

Your/you’re

  • Your shows ownership.

Ex: These are your headphones. They belong to you.

  • You’re is the contraction of you are.

Ex: You’re eating pizza tomorrow.


Were wear we re

Were/Wear/We’re

  • Were is the past tense of the word “be.” It means something happened or existed in the past. Example: “You were at the skate rink on Saturday."

  • We’re is the contraction of “we are.”

  • Ex: We’re at the end of the summer season.


Than then

Than/then

  • Than is used to compare two things.Ex: Isaiah is taller than Elizabeth.

  • Then is used to tell you when something happened. Ex: “Kierra went to the mall, then she went to her best friend’s house.”


Here hear

Here/hear

  • Hear means to listen to something using your ears.Ex: “I can hear the music playing!”

  • Here refers to a place close to the speaker.

  • Ex: “I found the puppy over here.”


Complement compliment

Complement/compliment

  • To complement something means to go well with it.

  • Ex: “This cheese complements the spaghetti sauce. It tastes good!”

  • When you compliment someone, you say something nice about them. Ex: “You look nice today!”


Sale sell

sale/sell

  • A sale is when something is discounted from its regular price. Ex: “I bought these shoes on sale for $10. They are normally $20.”

  • To sell means something is being exchanged for money. Ex: “I want to sell my old bike so I can buy a skateboard.”
