The ‘homophone’ [derived from the Greek homo = same and phone = sound] stands for a word that sounds like another but is spelled differently and differs in meaning (e.g. cite/site/sight). Searching for the correct spelling of homophones in a dictionary can be tricky, appearing as they do under different letters of the English alphabet (e.g. knot/not, air/heir, cue/queue, right/write). The computer spell checker too cannot be relied upon to identify a word spelled incorrectly, particularly if it seems correct in the context. This book lists homophones in alphabetical order, each with a cross-reference (e.g. air/heir will appear under A with a cross-reference under H). It both assists in the understanding of homophones as well as facilitates their correct use in phrases, sentences and definitions. Common sayings included appear in bold so as to enable the reader to identify better with their application in everyday language. Further, apart from certain commonly misspelled words, a separate section lists other words known to be confusing, e.g. elicit/illicit, childish/childlike, imply/infer, alright/all right, altogether/all together, thus making the use of the ‘right’ word all the easier!
