Homophones – words that sound the same (see, sea) but are written differently
Now that we know that
homo = THE SAME
all we have to remember is that:
phone = SOUND
Joined up, this gives:
The other people around the large phone were increasingly frustrated by how loud it was (sound).
Relate phone to sound.
Here are some homophone examples in sentences:
I ate my dinner at eight o’clock. (Ate, eight)
Come here and you can hear the birds sing. (Here, hear)
Are you sure you won’t walk along the shore? (Sure, shore)
The knight went for a night out. (Knight, night)
