Dear Readers,

Don't ya love a word that sounds like another?  The heir/air.  The flour/flower.  The alter/altar.  The beech/beach.  The peak/peek.  The pore/pour/poor.  These words are known as homophones, as distinguished from homonyms.  Although, these examples are also homonyms!  There is some overlap; if it sounds indistinct, you can explore the differences, and check out the less commonly sighted/cited/sited third sister: homograph!  What a wonderful world of words we live in!  And, here is your song of the day!
