What is a homophone?
Homophones are words that sound the same but have different meanings.
Some words are pronounced and spelt the same way but have different meanings.
These are called homonyms. For example:
- Bark (a tree’s outer 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)
- Bridle (a horse’s headgear)

Pupils should continue to distinguish between homophones and other words that are often confused.
