Grammar Of English

Homophones, English words with a different meaning but which SOUND the same when spoken out loud, makes learning English through listening more troublesome. It’s not a big problem, but it will help you if you know about it.

Fortunately, you don’t really come across a lot of homophones bunched together, you almost always hear them on their own in a context that allows you to guess which English meaning we expect. So if you’re in an academic conversation about what notable people have said and you hear cite, you’re not going to confuse this homophone with the word site.
