Homophones are words that sound the same, but have different spellings and meanings.
For those who have tried taken the TOEIC test, homophones are often used to confuse you. They are most commonly found in Part 1 and 2.
Let’s take a look at the following homophones:
allowed – permitted
aloud – audibly
bare – not clothed or covered
bear – to carry
brake – a device for slowing or stopping a moving vehicle
break – to separate into pieces
These are just a few examples of homophones but there are a lot of them in the English language!
