What is a Homophone?
Words that sound alike but not with the same meaning.

For example: "aye", "eye" and "I".
This website is intended to be a handy compilation of an alphabetized* list of homophones and some examples of such as used in sentences. This site will be useful to schools and offices as a reference of homophone usage when the spoken word must be converted to written communication.
