There are several words in English which sound the same but they are spelled differently and their meanings are different too ! Have you noticed that yet ? I guess so!

They are the "homophones".Check some examples of homophones given below the dictionary link.You can also check the words'meanings  by clicking on the link ,  to confirm their meanings so that later on, you may use these words properly in your own sentences,ok ?


Examples: cite/site/sight               buy/by/bye      sent/cent/scent

               stair/stare                     to/two/too      morning/mourning  


Look at these words : "morning and mourning".The second one ( mourning )has been used  a lot lately in our  pandemic reality,hasn't it ?

Unfortunately,many people have been dying ,because of the Coronavirus.A huge number of families have been going through this moment of "grief and mourning".What's the difference between "grief and mourning"?How do people deal with "death and loss"? Why do we grieve strangers and celebrities ? Why do we feel the need to grieve pets ?


 Lots of people prefer not to discuss about these issues,don't they ?However,nowadays, these issues cannot be ignored anymore. Everybody should not only talk about them but also try to face them in order to accept them"naturally" or maybe bravely!
