I'll add a few.

Not, knot, and naught.
Tow and toe.
Been and bin.
Sale and sail.
Tide and tied.
Praise and prays.
Seen and scene.
Oar, or, and ore.

Having just returned from 4 years in Germany. I can tell you that every one of my German friends said that English was easy. While we may have a lot homophones. The German language is rife with rabbit trails that will lead one into a very dark forest. Esp with gender assignments of various animate vs inanimate objects. Gender assignments can differ for the same object depending on what's going on with or to said object.

My German friends were amazed at how we have so many gender neutral things. They asked what gender the table I was sitting at would have in English. Their eyes grew when I said that we simply say: The table, The wall, A chair, The TV set, The floor.

Here is a very funny tale of the German language. http://www.online-literature.com/twain/tramp-abroad/54/

Then you have those folks from that foreign country up north called "Boston", that speak a totally different language!

And then after learning all that you can come down south and we'll teach you how to really speak English! Ya'll git that doncha?

First, lets see how many of those words you can name that sound the same but are spelled differently, and have totally different meanings.

To, too, two

Four, fore

Ate, eight

Ten, tin

Dear, deer

Pain, pane



OK, your turn!

I think for some of you, it may depend on where you come from as to whether those words sound the same or not, because for me, Ten and Tin are NOT the same sounding words nor are Been and Bin. Hmmmm....

BEAR and BARE
CAPITOL and CAPITAL
BAIT and BATE
BOAR and BORE
TARE and TEAR
TEAR and TIER
COO and COUP
BALD and BALLED
BAWL and BALL
BOLL and BOWL
TIRE (on a wheel) and TIRE (as exhausted)
CUE and QUEUE
WEAR and WARE
PIE and PI
BY and BUY
SEAL (the animal) and SEAL (make tight)
WRAP and RAP
TOWED and TOAD (of course)
COURSE and COARSE (of course again)
SELL and CELL
SHOO and SHOE

I have to quit, there are so many and we'd be doing this for a long time.

These of course lead one to wonder about words or expressions that make perfect sense in different contexts - Does "RETIRED" mean you're tired again, or that you got replacement tires? You park in the driveway and drive in the parkway. Your nose runs and your feet smell. The Aussies might have a high time down under.

I'm really, really surprised that no one has mentioned probably the most misused homophone in rv forums (this one included).

Break and Brake

Too funny. I had to work it through a couple times and its not great english on so many levels but ya, kinda cool.

I speak English, French, Spanish and German. By far I prefer Spanish from the logical point of view. Also pronounced exactly like it is written. Just a really nice language to speak.

German is a close second in logic but it is a tougher to learn. I still like it better than french although french is probably the most expressive if you are a native speaker, which I am not. I have started down the path of learning Arabic. Kinda cool...and I'm still totally lost.
