Homonyms, Homophones and Homographs

Homonyms, Homophones and Homographs
Homonyms, homophones and homographs can bring confusion to even adults and teachers! For clarity, we've brought them all together on one page.
SpellingCity spelling lists will help you learn your homophones and have fun all at the same time! We have made it easy for you to learn the difference among homographs, homophones, and homonyms using our definitions and examples below. At SpellingCity, we help you master homophones to show off your skills
Compound words are words which are created from two, or sometimes more, words that, when joined together, create a new word. Studying compound words is fun, helps kids understand the language, builds an interest in words and will help prepare students to learn prefixes, suffixes and word roots.
Sound alike words, also known as homophones, cause confusion. Here, at, we want you to learn the correct spelling and meaning behind all your sound alike words. To practice, SpellingCity provides you with "confusing words" vocabulary lists.

We all have made those mistakes when, for instance, your friend had a hoarse throat and you sent an email that said, “Tommy has a horse throat.” Did you really mean that your friend has a horse in his throat? No.
