Homophones: Definition, 100 Examples and Sentences

Homophones are words that are pronounced the same, but are spelled differently. Also, their meaning is different. Examples of homophone words are «casa» and «caza», «raza» and «rasa», «rebelar» and «revelar», «a» and «ha», «varón» and «barón», «errar» and » shoeing”, among many others.

Homophones are easily differentiated when they are written, but in spoken language the context is needed, that is, the rest of the sentence. For example: «I made the cake» and «Laura, raise the flag, please.»
