What are homophones? Homophones are words that sound alike but have different meanings.
For example blue and blew, they sound the same but their meanings don’t really relate to one another and sometimes, people tend to misused these words.
Are there times that you get confused pronouncing homonyms? That you can’t even distinguish which is which?
In this video tip, you will find out the difference between the three commonly misused homophones:
- “Two,” is the number next to the number one.
- “To,” is the preposition.
- “Too,” means “also.”
We pronounced these words short. Now if you want to make an emphasis, we usually give them more stress to make it sound dramatic.
I know it sounds confusing. But trust me, once you familiarize yourself using these three words and their meanings and spellings, you will enjoy speaking English confidently!
