Transcript of Homophones

Grammar police spies...



Why do these types of crimes occur
Words that are pronounced the same but have different meaning and spelling.
Phonetic Error
Technically, words are not misspelled
Switch the intended word for its homophone
Who's and Whose:
"Who's" is a contraction for "who is."
Ex. Who's attending Coachella this year?
"Whose" is the possessive form of "who."
Ex. Whose Coachella tickets are on the floor?
Examples in Sentences

Wrong: I like big buts and I cannot lie.
Correct: I like big butts and I cannot lie.

"But" is a coordinating conjunction used to indicate a reversal in a compound sentence.
"Butt" is an informal word used to refer to a part of the human body.

In Action Part II
Grammar Police in Action
Wrong: Helena cut Dorina's hare in V-shaped layers.

Correct: Helena cut Dorina's hair in V-shaped layers.

"Hare" is a long-eared mammal that resembles a large rabbit.

"Hair" is a thin-strand that grows from the skin of humans and animals.
Apart and A Part
"Apart" is separated by distance
Ex. My boyfriend and I have been apart for a month.
"A part" has two words that refer to a piece of something.
Ex. May I have a part of your filet mignon?
Accept and Except:
"Accept" means to approve or agree.
Ex. I do not accept Romeo and Juliet's romance.
"Except" is a proposition meaning to exclude.
I like Romeo's cheesy language except when Juliet is in the same scene.
