Homophones and Homographs

An American Dictionary

Book - 1999
Rate this:
This expanded third edition defines and cross-references 7,870 homophones and 1,554 homographs (up from 7,000 and 1,400 in the 2d ed.).As the most comprehensive compilation of American homophones (words that sound alike) and homographs (look-alikes), this latest edition serves well where even the most modern spell-checkers and word processors fail--although rain, reign, and rein may be spelled correctly, the context in which these words may appropriately be used is not obvious to a computer.
