Do You Confuse Yourself With These Words?

Do you confuse yourself with these words?

List of confusing words-The The English language is not so easy as you suppose, isn’t it? And neither is it too tricky. You should have the right knowledge and not mere rot education to understand what each word tries to convey. Some words have the same sense, some different but sound similar. You need to have the knack to differentiate between the two.

According to the British Thesaurus, words with different meaning, roots, and spelling, but with the same pronunciation are termed as Homophones. You might have come across many such terms. However, it is not entirely possible to understand it quickly unless your brain works equally faster to relate to the real message of what is being said.

Reading through the dictionary over and over again is truly not a relevant choice. Besides, there is a saying that actions speak louder than words. Here, you can put images instead of the actions. An image or a proper picture can bring about the actual significance of the word in a better manner as compared to the definitions.


Below are represented 100 such pairs of homophones in pictures, which you generally might muddle up unknowingly and yet too frequently. Check for yourself how many of the words you jumble up in any written or oral conversation. Sometimes, does the sound of a particular word guide you in the wrong direction to make out a different meaning from the original? Now, you can spell and speak it right.

A rack, A rock, Iraq, I rock
