We often say things that sound differently than what we were meaning to say. No, we’re not being philosophical here. It actually happens when two different words have similar pronunciations! Illustrator Bruce Worden played with the concept and examples of homophones in his blogs by bringing up one homophone per day and differentiating the two words with clever black-and-white illustrations. Worden delighted all his viewers with his funny illustrations while removing all the different kinds of confusion people face while using homophones. The illustrator has compiled 150 homophones illustrations into a book and we swear, Grammar Nazis could not be happier to share it with people who mix these similar words every single time.
