What is a homophone?

Homophones are words that sound the same but have different meanings.

  • Bark (a tree’s out layer)
  • Bark (the sound a dog makes)

Some homophones are pronounced the same way but are spelt differently and have different meanings. For example:

  • Bridal (related to weddings)
