Put quite simply, a homograph is a group (usually a pair) of words that are spelled the same way, but have different meanings. They may or may not be pronounced the same way, although the difference in pronunciation is often just a shift in the accented syllable.
Strengthen your brain by playing a matching game.
You will be given two lists of word definitions.Find the pair that has the homograph in common. Here is a sample:
2 and D go together since their word is “dove.”
3 and A both go with the word “tear.”
The remaining words are: contract, wound, and model.
Work through 3-5 sample sets at Byrdseed.com.
Try to find the answers and jot down your guesses, before clicking the hint button. This will give you the 5 words.
Build a 2 column form for these 5 homographs (or 5 of your choice)
minute, coordinates, produce, entrance, down
Make an answer key to go along with your definitions.
Share your lists with your teacher or EY coordinator in your building.
