More > learners. English has many words that sound the same -- or almost the same -- but are spelled differently (homophones). There are also words that sound differently and have different meanings but are spelled the same (heteronyms). Collected here are many of these words along with International Pronunciation Alphabet (IPA) pronunciations, definitions and parts of speech. Section I contains more than 1,100 homophone groups, each having two or more words, for a total of more than 2,400 words. Section II contains over 200 heteronyms. The IPA pronunciations are those most likely heard in everyday American speech. Many synonyms are provided with usage examples. Some words are used more often than others -- some you may never need to use.< Less

More > 1930) was Britain's poet laureate from 1913 to 1930. A doctor by training, he achieved literary fame only late in life. His poems reflect a deep Christian faith, and he is the author of many well-known hymns. It was through Bridges’ efforts that Gerard Manley Hopkins achieved posthumous fame. "The Evening Darkens Over" The evening darkens over After a day so bright, The windcapt waves discover That wild will be the night. There's sound of distant thunder. The latest sea-birds hover Along the cliff's sheer height; As in the memory wander Last flutterings of delight, White wings lost on the white. There's not a ship in sight; And as the sun goes under, Thick clouds conspire to cover The moon that should rise yonder. Excerpt from: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robert_Bridges< Less

Bennett is obviously at home with both Siglo de Oro literature and its linguistic excesses, as he is with contemporary avant garde literature with its multidirected experiments to both destroy... More > language and to re-create it. In short, this intricate and faithful-to-the-original (homophonically speaking) “translation” will surely find its place among the major experiments in contemporary poetry. -Ivan Argüelles Bennett’s transduction of Sor Juana’s Primero Sueño was written, he has said, by “pretending I don’t know Spanish and writing it out (reading it) as if it were English.” This process arises from “an interest or attention paid to speech and hand writing as ‘texts’ full of meanings that have nothing to do with linguistics. I often read, or try to read, printed texts that way, too.” .... John Bennett’s project is as significant as any we will find in current poetical practice. - Jim Leftwich< Less
