200 Homophones List in English

200 Homophones List in English! A homophone is a word that has the same pronunciation as another but has a different meaning. A homophone’s spelling can also differ. The two words might be spelled the same, such as rose and rose, or they can be spelled differently, such as rain, reign, and rein.

A word that is pronounced similarly to another but has a different meaning, whether or not they are spelled the same way, such as heir and air.  The pronunciation of two words can sometimes determine whether they are homophones. For example, depending on how the speaker pronounces aunt, it may or may not be a homophone of the word ant.
